Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo missed the first day of veteran minicamp with an illness, Coach Jay Gruden said.
“Orakpo just has a cold,” Gruden said. “He wasn’t feeling good, under the weather. Strep throat maybe.”
Orakpo could return to the field Wednesday for Day 2 of the camp, which wraps up Thursday.
“He’ll be back, hopefully, tomorrow,” Gruden said.
