Orakpo: 'I felt a pop'

Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo confirmed Monday afternoon that the X-ray and MRI exam on his shoulder revealed no significant damage.Coach Mike Shanahan, though, said he does not anticipate Orakpo suiting up again during the preseason as a precaution.I feel better today, Orakpo said. We got some good news, so Im very optimistic about it. It wasnt as serious as I thought and I should be ready to roll.Orakpo was injured in the first quarter of Saturdays 33-31 loss in Chicago as he attempted to arm tackle Bears wide receiver Devin Hester.As he lay on the field, Orakpo feared the worst. The sharp pain he felt was in the same pectoral muscle that he tore in the season finale last season.I worked this hard trying to get back, and I actually felt it pop, Orakpo said. I thought it was done, to be honest with you. It felt very similar, thats why it took a long process to get off the field. Thats what scared me the most.Orakpo was examined Saturday night by renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews, who happened to be on the sidelines. Andrews performed the original surgery.There was no tear, Shanahan said. They felt like it was a little scar tissue, but nothing that serious. So he should be okay. Everyone is relieved.

Paisano's Facebook Live: Ryan Kerrigan takes your pre-Week 4 questions

Ryan Kerrigan joined CSN Redskins Insider JP Finlay on Thursday evening to take your questions on Facebook Live, presented by Paisano's Pizza.

What did they get to? Here's a sampling of the questions:

- Does some deep-down part of him wish Robert Griffin III were playing this week when Cleveland comes to town?

- If the Redskins defense were a pizza topping, which would they be? 

- Who is the hardest running back to take down? 

- How did he get the idea for his sack dance?

That, plus many more, were answered in the nearly 25-minute conversation. Watch it all in the video player below:

Browns WR Josh Gordon decides he needs to enter rehab

Browns WR Josh Gordon decides he needs to enter rehab

An explosive talent with a long-record of off-field issues, Browns receiver Josh Gordon announced Thursday that he will head for rehab.

Gordon missed the entire 2015 season due to a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy, but when he has played, he has produced. In 14 starts during the 2013 season Gordon caught 87 balls for more than 1,600 yards and nine touchdowns. 

MORE REDSKINS: JACKSON SHOULD BE READY FOR BROWNS

A teammate of Robert Griffin III's at Baylor, some in Cleveland hoped that reuniting the QB and WR would bring back their college fireworks. That plan faded first when Griffin got injured Week 1, and while Gordon is still suspended, some hope remained that the two could connect later in the season. For now, it seems that plan will not work. 

Without the decision to enter a rehab facility, Gordon would have missed the Redskins game this Sunday due to suspension.
