Robinson reverted to the Falcons' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log. The 28-year-old linebacker has been activated for three consecutive games, meaning he may return to the 53-man roster as soon as Thursday night against the Panthers. Robinson made no contributions on the stat sheet during his first two appearances of 2020, but he's tallied four combined tackles and a QB hit the past two weeks against Minnesota and Detroit.
Robinson has been elevated from the Falcons' practice squad in preparation for Sunday's matchup against the Vikings, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. With John Cominsky (reserve-COVID-19 list) unavailable for Week 6, Atlanta has rallied defensive reinforcements from the practice squad, summoning Robinson and Chris Slayton to provide depth in the front seven. Robinson has made two appearances for the Falcons so far this season, fielding 21 special-teams snaps and 16 defensive snaps but having no tackles to his name as of yet. Minnesota ranks fourth in the NFL with 160.6 rushing yards per game, but the team will be without star running back Dalvin Cook (groin) for this contest.
Robinson has been called up to Atlanta's 53-man roster ahead of Sunday's matchup against Carolina. The 2015 seventh-round pick has seen the field for one game thus far in his debut campaign for the Falcons, fielding 16 defensive snaps and 10 special-teams snaps in a 30-26 loss to Chicago during Week 3. Starting linebacker Foyesade Oluokun was back in the lineup Week 4 after sitting out the loss to the Bears with a hamstring injury, but he also dealt with an oblique injury early this week before returning to full practice Thursday. The Falcons are making a preemptive move to be better situated at the position should another issue arise.
Robinson has been moved to the practice squad from the Falcons' active roster, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The 28-year-old last received an NFL snap in 2017, when he was a member of the Jets, but with Foyesade Oluokun (hamstring) unable to suit up for Week 3, Atlanta was left searching for a competent replacement at linebacker. Robinson fielded 20 percent of the defensive snaps against Chicago, plus an additional 30 percent of the special-teams work, while Mykal Walker (88 percent) and Deion Jones (93 percent) got the majority of the reps at linebacker. Robinson will reside on the practice squad unless injuries or ineffectiveness affect players on the active roster.
The Cardinals promoted Robinson from their practice squad Tuesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Robinson has resided on the Jets' injured reserve list for most of the season before he was released a week ago. It's believed that Robinson has fully recovered from the groin issue that resulted in his extended shutdown, so he should be available for the Cardinals in a depth role at linebacker Week 17 against the Seahawks.
