Robinson (ankle) will undergo surgery to repair torn ligaments in his ankle, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.
The veteran cornerback will be placed on injured reserve this week, bringing his season to a crashing halt. Robinson registered six tackles on the season, playing a rotational role in the Saints' secondary. He signed a four-year contract with the Saints this offseason, so as long as he can return to full strength, expect him to maintain a spot on defense next season.
A 2010 first-round pick, Robinson will return to his first NFL home after pit stops in San Diego, Indianapolis and Philadelphia. In the latter locale, he aided in the Eagles' march to a win in Super Bowl LII, earning 69 percent of the defensive snaps while playing in every game. His stat line included 47 tackles and four interceptions, but he may find it difficult to uphold that standard with Ken Crawley and P.J. Williams in the way for reps opposite stud 2017 Defensive Rookie of the Year Marshon Lattimore.
Robinson (concussion) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Robinson has passed concussion protocol testing and is cleared for Monday's game against the Raiders. The cornerback is coming off a four-tackle performance against the Giants in which he logged 47 defensive snaps.
Robinson is going through the NFL's concussion protocol, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Robinson suffered the head injury in Sunday's win over the Giants and did not return, and he will now have to be cleared of any concussion-like symptoms before returning to the field. Luckily for Robinson, the Eagles have a long week ahead with their next game coming Monday night against the Raiders, so the extra day could prove to be valuable for the cornerback in his recovery.
Robinson is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Giants as he is evaluated for a head injury.
The game is entering the closing stages of the final quarter, so it seems unlikely for Robinson to return Sunday. Ronald Darby and Jalen Mills are the Eagles only remaining available cornerbacks with Robinson unlikely to return.
