Orakpo strained his right groin early in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 24-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys and was limited in practice Tuesday.
“I’m pretty banged up, man,” Orakpo said.
Orakpo said he’d like to play in the season finale against the New York Giants, but with a caveat.
“I’m not going to be stupid,” he said. “If I feel good, I’ll try to give it a go. If not, it’s been a good season.”
But Orakpo said he’s not thinking whether Sunday will be his final game with Washington.
"It’s been a disappointing year from the whole aspect of our record,” Orakpo said. “I’m not concerned with it possibly being my last game. We have to take care of these Giants and get this bad taste out of our mouth.
“It’s going to be the last time to suit up [as a group]. Hopefully go out with a bang and finish the season somewhat on a positive note.”
