Keenan Robinson May Be Lost For Year

Wow. I've not seen a run of serious injuries quite like this. It appears the coaching staff is very high on Keenan and his role is increasing each week. Hopefully a miracle happens and he gets 5 more games of experience, but with the way our luck has been running, it's probably torn.

Maybe if we make predictions on who gets injured next we can get some reverse karma going.

This guy's already been hurt.

I say Banks goes down against the G-men on Monday.

Just wondering what the verdict was on Robinson. Here it is:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/foo ... muckelroy/

The Washington Redskins have placed rookie inside linebacker Keenan Robinson on Injured Reserve, and have filled his roster spot with third-year pro Roddrick Muckelroy a team source confirmed Monday.

Robinson, Washington’s fourth-round pick (119th overall) out of Texas, suffered a torn pectoral muscle late in last Thursday’s game at Dallas.

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Friday that the rookie was undergoing tests to determine the extent of his injury, but added, “right now, it doesn’t look good.” The coach said that the team feared Robinson would be lost for the season with the same injury that forced fellow linebacker Brian Orakpo out for the year in Week 2.

The 6-foot-3, 238-pound Robinson had been used primarily to spell 15-year veteran London Fletcher, but had played more in the last two weeks with Fletcher hobbled by a sprained left ankle. Robinson played 19 defensive snaps and 21 special teams snapsin Thursday’s game at Dallas.

The team signed another Texas product to replace Robinson. Muckelroy was on the practice field Monday as the Redskins began preparation for next week’s game against the New York Giants.

The 6-2, 250-pound Muckelroy was drafted in the fourth round (131st overall) by Cincinnati in 2010. He appeared in 14 games as a rookie, recording 10 tackles, and then missed all of last season with a ruptured Achilles’ tendon. Muckelroy played in five games this season – his last game was in Week 9 against Denver – before he was released by Cincinnati.
