EDGE Analysis

Orakpo (shoulder) is expected to be return to practice in one week, Omar Ruiz of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Orakpo skipped out on Saturday's practice due to a shoulder injury, but as coach Mike Vrabel already suggested, it doesn't look like the ailment is very serious. The Titans are likely being extra cautious with the veteran linebacker, and the expectation is that Orakpo will be ready to return next week.

Orakpo did not participate in practice Saturday and coach Mike Vrabel indicated afterward that an injured shoulder was the culprit, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. However, Vrabel also suggested the issue isn't believed to be serious.

EDGE Analysis

The Titans have little incentive to rush the veteran linebacker's return from the issue, so it's possible he misses a few sessions even if he's feeling fine just as a precautionary measure. It's best to consider Orakpo day-to-day given the comments made by his coach.

Orakpo contributed 1.5 sacks and two tackles (one solo) during Saturday's 22-21 win over Kansas City in the wild-card round.

EDGE Analysis

Orakpo picked a good time to tie his season high in sacks. The 31-year-old pass rusher still has plenty of gas left in the tank, as his 7.0 sacks in the regular season represented his third consecutive campaign with at least that many since joining the Titans.

Orakpo recorded three tackles (one solo) and one sack in Sunday's win over the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Orakpo now has at least one sack in three of the past four contests. His 61 defensive snaps were also his second-highest total on the season, as it appears he is fully recovered from a minor leg injury a couple of week ago.

Orakpo contributed four tackles (two solo) and 1.5 sacks in Sunday's 20-16 win over the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Indianapolis' Jacoby Brissett came in as the most-sacked quarterback in the league, and Orakpo was happy to add to that total. The veteran pass rusher is up to 4.0 sacks this season, but has almost no chance of matching last year's 10.5.

Orakpo (leg) was a full practice participant for the Titans on Wednesday, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports.

EDGE Analysis

Orakpo suffered a minor leg injury in last Thursday's loss to the Steelers, but was never really expected to miss any time. The 31-year-old has only 2.5 sacks on the season and will hope to add to his total against the Colts this week.

Orakpo sustained a minor leg injury in Thursday's 40-17 loss to the Steelers, freelance sports writer John Glennon reports.

EDGE Analysis

Orakpo played 53 of 76 defensive snaps, notching two solo tackles, but head coach Mike Mularkey indicated the injury wasn't serious. The 31-year-old will have also some extra recovery time before the Week 12 matchup with the Colts due to the Thursday night game this week.

Orakpo recorded a sack in Sunday's victory over the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Orakpo made his only tackle of the day count, as he forced opposing quarterback Andy Dalton to fumble following a sack early in the second quarter. The veteran saw 41 snaps (80.0 percent) in the contest.

Orakpo notched four tackles (one solo) and a half sack Sunday against the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Orakpo is slumping after he racked up 10.5 sacks in 2016, since he has just 1.5 sacks this campaign. Because he doesn't add much in the tackle category with just 20 tackles (15 solo) on the season, it's tough to see much IDP value at this time.
