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.
Keenan Robinson (shoulder) is listed as active Sunday against the Bills.
Upon returning in Week 13 from a three-game absence, Robinson has been contained to no defensive snaps and five on special teams. Defensive coordinator Joe Barry is exhibiting trust in Will Compton and Mason Foster to man inside linebacker for the remainder of the season.
Keenan Robinson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, ESPN's John Keim reports.
Robinson was active the past two weeks, but he didn't get any defensive snaps in either game. It seems the Washington Redskins are content with Will Compton and Mason Foster at inside linebacker.
