Mike Shanahan announced at his press conference today that Redskins outside linebacker Brian Orakpo had torn his pectoral muscle and would be out for the year. Defensive end Adam Carriker, re-signed this offseason, tore his quadriceps tendon and is also out for the year. Good luck, Jim Haslett, you're going to need it.

Big news from today's Falcons press conference, as Mike Smith announces Brent Grimes is out for the year with an Achilles injury. Grimes ranked third in the league last year in Success Rate and second in Adjusted Pass Yards, so this is obviously a big loss. Asante Samuel and Dunta Robinson are now your starters at cornerback.

In this week's Monday Morning Quarterback, Peter King talks with GM Rick Smith about the Texans' offseason changes, including the value of being emotionally detached from his plays and the 20-70-10 roster strategy. The recent information on the Saints' ledgers, Jim Harbaugh's ridiculousness regarding Peyton Manning, and reports the Dolphins' decision to appear on Hard Knocks actually wasn't the decision of owner Stephen Ross.
