Orakpo agreed to terms Friday with the Titans on a four-year, $32 million contract, the Washington Times reports.

Orakpo is coming off a substandard 2014 season with Washington (24 tackles and 0.5 sacks in seven games) that came to an end in October when he suffered a torn right pectoral muscle. The same injury cost Orakpo most of the 2012 campaign, but he's otherwise consistently pressured opposing quarterbacks when healthy during his career, averaging nearly 10 sacks in the four seasons he's played at least 15 games. With the Titans, Orakpo will slot in at outside linebacker in defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau's 3-4 defensive scheme, where he'll be tasked with providing a bookend on the pass rush with Derrick Morgan, who was also re-signed by the Titans on Friday.

Orakpo (pectoral) was placed on the season-ending IR on Tuesday, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Orakpo recently learned that he has once again suffered a torn pectoral muscle, so it's no surprise to see him officially ruled out for the remainder of the regular season. Trent Murphy will likely resume additional outside linebacker snaps in his stead, while linebacker Everette Brown was re-signed by the team Tuesday to add depth.

Orakpo is reportedly done for the season due to a torn right pectoral muscle, reports.

Left pectoral muscle issues have cost Orakpo time in the past and his latest injury setback will evidently sideline him for the rest of the 2014 season. Trent Murphy finished Week 7's game in Orakpo's place, and thus appears in line to see expanded duties for Washington at right outside linebacker going forward.

Orakpo is slated to undergo an MRI on his pectoral muscle, ESPN reports.

Orakpo entered Sunday's game with an ankle injury, but exited the contest due to a reported shoulder issue. However, in light of the most recent report, it appears Orakpo is actually dealing with a pectoral injury suffered Sunday. Furthermore, the concern is significant enough to warrant an MRI, casting another cloud over Orakpo's status. As a result, expect a diagnosis on the outside linebacker to surface shortly.

Orakpo will not return to Sunday's game against the Titans due to a shoulder injury.

Orakpo suffered a stringer earlier in Sunday's game and also carried an ankle ailment into Washington's Week 7 contest. While Orakpo will not re-enter the action, it's unclear if his shoulder injury will limit him moving forward.

Orakpo (ankle) suffered a stinger during Sunday's game against the Titans and is considered questionable to return.

Orakpo entered Sunday's contest carrying a slight ankle injury, but now has been sidelined with a stinger. Prior to exiting versus Tennessee, Orakpo did not record a tackle.

Orakpo (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Orakpo has just a half-sack this season, but he should have some opportunities to increase that number against a Tennessee offense that ranks near the bottom of the league with 17 sacks allowed this season.

Orakpo (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, the Washington Post reports.

Orakpo (ankle) is listed as active Sunday at Arizona.

Orakpo made just one limited showing at practice during the week, but the appearance was enough to induce active status. After five games, though, he's failed to live up to his billing as a prime pass rusher, with just a half sack to his name.
