Washington Redskins Pro Bowl linebacker Brian Orakpo and safety Brandon Meriweather have left Saturday's preseason game against the Chicago Bears because of injuries.
Orakpo attempted to make a lunging tackle after Devin Hester caught a pass late in the first quarter and missed. He stayed down for a few minutes as medical staff tended to him before walking gingerly off the field and eventually had his left shoulder wrapped on the sideline.
Shortly after Orakpo went down, Meriweather had to be helped off the field with a knee injury. He was hurt trying to tackle Michael Bush on an 8-yard touchdown run, right after Robert Griffin III lost a fumble.
