Orakpo sits out practice

By John Keim

ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo did not practice Thursday and his strained groin remains sore, putting his status for Sunday's regular-season finale in jeopardy.

Orakpo will test his groin again Friday. If he can't practice, it's hard to imagine the Redskins putting him on the field given their record (3-12) or the fact that he's a free agent after the season. Orakpo said Tuesday that he wants to play.

"If we feel he can't go, he won't go," Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said. "We're not going to jeopardize his leg to play. It's a little sore right now, but there's still a chance."

Orakpo is the only Redskin who did not practice; everyone else was full participation.

For the Giants, corner Jayron Hosley (illness), corner Trumaine McBride (groin), guard Brandon Mosley (hand), defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder), tight end Adrien Robinson (knee) and receiver Reuben Randle (knee) did not practice. Guard David Diehl (knee), defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins (shin/quad) and corner Terrell Thomas (knee) were limited.
