ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Washington Redskins two-time Pro Bowl linebacker Brian Orakpo and defensive end Adam Carriker are out for the season with injuries.
 
    
Coach Mike Shanahan said Monday that Orakpo suffered another tear of the pectoral muscle near his left shoulder in Sunday's 31-28 loss to the St. Louis Rams.
 
    
Orakpo had surgery on the same shoulder after a suffering similar injury in the final game of last season.
 
    
Carriker tore the quad tendon at the base of his right knee in the first quarter of Sunday's game.
 
    
The Redskins now have to replace two defensive starters on a team that has allowed 63 points in its first two games.
