  • Rams' A'Shawn Robinson: Officially placed on IR

    The Rams moved Robinson (knee) to the reserve/injured list Saturday. This move was fully expected, as Robinson was diagnosed with a torn meniscus and ruled out for the season earlier in the week. The veteran played in 10 games prior to the injury, totaling 42 tackles (22 solo). Marquise Copeland could be the primary recipient of additional snaps in Robinson's absence.

  • Rams' A'Shawn Robinson: Needs surgery, out for season

    Robinson has been diagnosed with a torn meniscus and will need surgery, which will end his 2022 campaign, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. Robinson suffered the injury during the team's Week 11 loss to the Saints and will likely head to IR soon. In his absence, Marquise Copeland and Michael Hoecht are candidates for increased roles.

  • Rams' A'Shawn Robinson: Questionable to return Sunday

    Robinson exited with a knee injury during Sunday's game against the Saints. Robinson recorded three tackles before he was forced out during the first half, though the nature of this issue is still unclear. The starting defensive end recorded 39 tackles, over the first nine games of the season, and his absence will leave Marquise Copeland and Michael Hoecht to step up into bigger roles against New Orleans.

  • Rams' A'Shawn Robinson: Collects six stops in Week 5

    Robinson recorded six tackles (four solo) during Sunday's 22-10 loss to the Cowboys. Robinson's efforts tied him for the second-leading tackler for Los Angeles during Sunday's contest against Dallas. The seventh-year defensive lineman continues to play around half of the Rams' defensive snaps in 2022, and he'll likely operate in a similar role Sunday when the team hosts the Panthers.

  • Rams' A'Shawn Robinson: Undergoes minor surgery

    Coach Sean McVay said Thursday that Robinson (knee) will undergo a "minor procedure" and will miss "the next few weeks," Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Robinson missed the first eight games of the 2020 campaign with an undisclosed non-football injury and appears to be at risk of missing the opening game of the 2021 season as well. He primarily played a reserve role for Los Angeles last year, but with Michael Brockers now in Detroit, he was in line for an increased workload this season. If the 2016 second-round pick is unable to suit up for the Sept. 12 regular-season opener, then Eric Banks and Earnest Brown would be the most likely candidates to replace him as the starter.

  • Rams' A'Shawn Robinson: Won't play Sunday

    Robinson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game at Miami, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports. The 25-year-old was activated from the nonfootball injury list Friday after missing the first seven weeks of the season due to his cardiovascular condition, but he won't immediately be taking the field for the Rams. Robinson will have to wait until Week 10 to make his debut in Los Angeles with the bye on tap next week.

  • Rams' A'Shawn Robinson: Activated from NFI list

    The Rams activated Robinson (undisclosed) from the non-football injury list Friday, Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Coach Sean McVay said earlier this week that this move was in the works, and the Rams officially shifted Robinson to the active roster after two weeks of practicing. Robinson was held out due to a cardiovascular condition that involved a "respiratory situation." The Rams still haven't revealed whether Robinson will play Sunday against the Dolphins, although it seems likely at this time. The 25-year-old nose tackle last played for Detroit in 2019, logging 40 tackles, 1.5 sacks, three pass breakups and a forced fumble through 13 games.

  • Rams' A'Shawn Robinson: Joins Rams

    Robinson (shoulder) agreed Wednesday with the Rams on a two-year contract worth $17 million, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Robinson will move on from Detroit after four years with the club, culminating in a 2019 season in which he finished with 40 tackles, 1.5 sacks and three pass breakups over 13 games. Given the Rams' financial commitment, Robinson should at the very least be a key rotational piece along the defensive line in 2020, if not a full-time starter.

  • Lions' A'Shawn Robinson: Missing more time

    Robinson (shoulder) won't suit up in Sunday's season finale against Green Bay, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Robinson suffered the injury during Week 16's loss to Denver and failed to practice this week. John Atkins and Frank Herron are expected to see an uptick in defensive tackle snaps against the Packers on Sunday.

  • Lions' A'Shawn Robinson: Can't practice Wednesday

    Robinson (shoulder) did not take part in Wednesday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Robinson missed every day of practice a week ago and did not play versus the Buccanneers. He begins Week 16 with a DNP and appears in danger of missing a second straight week. If Robinson can log even limited reps in the coming days, it'll go a long way in convincing prospective fantasy owners that he'll be ready to take the field Sunday.

  • Lions' A'Shawn Robinson: Leaves game Sunday

    Robinson (shoulder) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against Minnesota. Robinson exits the game in the second quarter right before halftime, but the specifics of the injury are unclear. As long as Robinson is sidelined, John Atkins and Mike Daniels would be in line to see an uptick in snaps.

  • Lions' A'Shawn Robinson: Managing thumb injury

    Robinson suffered a thumb injury in Sunday's game against Chicago, which limited him, Kyle Meinke of mlive.com reports. Robinson made only two solo tackles in the game and could have the thumb injury to blame for his lack of production. It's unclear how serious the issue is, but it will be important to monitor his practice availability heading into Week 11. If he can't go, Kevin Strong (ribs) or Mike Daniels would be in line to see the start at defensive tackle.

  • Lions' A'Shawn Robinson: Ready to rock

  • Lions' A'Shawn Robinson: Four tackles in win

    Robinson notched four tackles (three solo) during Sunday's 13-10 win over the Chargers. Robinson is playing a rotational role along Detroit's defensive line and has racked up seven tackles across two games. He'll continue to play his part in the Lions' formidable defensive front alongside Damon Harrison and Mike Daniels, and work to contain the Eagles in Week 3.

  • Lions' A'Shawn Robinson: Healthy for offseason workouts

    Robinson (knee) didn't practice with the rehab group during minicamp, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. An unspecified knee injury prevented Robinson from taking part in Week 17 of last season, but it doesn't sound as if the defensive tackle has been significantly limited during spring workouts in any way. While Damon Harrison (contract dispute) is yet to report to the team this offseason, the Lions nonetheless appear to be entering the 2019 campaign with one of the strongest defensive fronts the organization has seen in some time. Robinson is a big part of that and seems primed for another productive year in the season ahead. The Alabama product was on pace for a career-high 60 tackles in 2018 had he played a full 16-game slate.

  • Lions' A'Shawn Robinson: Will play Sunday

    Robinson (shoulder) will play Sunday against the Rams, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Robinson was limited throughout the week at practice but he'll play through the aliment on Sunday. Even with the injury, the defensive tackle could see increased reps with Haloti Ngata (shoulder) out for a handful of weeks.

  • Lions' A'Shawn Robinson: Uncertain to play Rams

    Robinson (shoulder) is questionable to play in the Lions' Week 6 matchup against the Rams. Robinson was limited in practice throughout the week with an unspecified shoulder injury. If he's able to play, he'll likely receive the starting nod with veteran DT Haloti Ngata (shoulder) ruled out.

  • Lions' A'Shawn Robinson: Selected in second round by Detroit

    The Lions selected Robinson in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft, 46th overall. Robinson was widely expected to be a first-round pick, but he fell this far because he's likely a pure run-stopping tackle in the NFL. Even if he doesn't collapse the pocket on passing downs, though, Robinson should prove a valuable anchor on the interior for Detroit, and at the very least he provides them with a long-term option for absorbing double-teams. Robinson is unlikely to make an IDP impact, however.
