Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that Washington’s OLB Brian Orakpo suffered only a sprain to his pectoral muscle and nothing more.

During last night’s defeat  33-31 defeat against the Bears, Orakpo was taken out of the game in the 1st quarter after trying to tackle Devin Hester. Orakpo fell to the ground and immediately grabbed his left arm. The teams’ major concern is the fact that it’s the same pectoral muscle that he tore last season.

La Canfora adds that Orakpo is expected to return to practice in the near future.
