Orakpo recorded three tackles (one solo) and one sack in Sunday's win over the Texans.
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 he sustained a couple of week ago.
Orakpo contributed four tackles (two solo) and 1.5 sacks in Sunday's 20-16 win over the Colts.
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 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.
Orakpo played 53 of 76 defensive snaps and notched 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.
