Robinson (shoulder) will play Sunday against the Lions.
After missing the entire week of practice, Robinson will suit up Sunday. He could see his reps monitored because of the injury, in which case Mark Herzlich could have an expanded role on defense.
Robinson (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's tilt with the Lions.
Robinson has been absent from the practice field all week due to an unspecified shoulder aliment. The injury seemed to appear out of nowhere, as Robinson logged 51 defensive snaps in last Sunday's win over the Cowboys. Look for more updates to come before kickoff, with Deontae Skinner potentially seeing extra time on the field should Robinson be ruled out.
Robinson (groin) will not play in Friday's preseason opener against the Dolphins.
Robinson is competing for a starting linebacker job with the Giants, but won't make his first appearance for the team Friday due to a groin issue. After missing 28 of his first 64 games as a pro, another injury is hardly something new for Robinson, but he's a productive player when healthy, so fantasy owners should hope his groin issue doesn't linger long.
Robinson was signed as a free agent in March after spending the first four years of his career with the Redskins. He appears to be the favorite to open the season as the starter in the middle, but his playing time will largely depend on his health. Since he entered the league in 2012, Robinson has only played in 36 of a possible 64 games, and has never played more than 13 games in a single season. Along with staying healthy, he'll also have to fend off Jasper Brinkley, B.J. Goodson, and Kelvin Sheppard for the starting spot.
The New York Giants signed Keenan Robinson on Thursday, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports 1 reports.
Robinson fell out of favor after a three-game absence mid-season, recording just seven of his 63 tackles on the season over the final three contests. Overall, he picked up 52 percent of the defensive snaps, which may not change much with competition in the form of Uani Unga and Mark Herzlich already in place at middle linebacker.
