Robinson, according to Joe Buscaglia of WKBW.com, should provide some competition at the bottom of the Buffalo depth chart with the likes of Tanner Vallejo, Deon Lacy and Julian Stanford. His 2017 campaign for the Giants ended with a move to injured reserve for a quad issue, so his signing is likely an indication that Robinson is healthy as training camp approaches.
Robinson suffered a quad injury in Week 9's loss to the Rams, bringing his season to sudden halt. The veteran linebacker missed the first two games of the season with a concussion but then went on to play in the next six contests (three starts) -- recording 32 tackles (20 solo) in the process. Look for Jonathan Casillas to take on a larger role for the remainder of the season with Robinson sidelined.
Robinson (quadriceps) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Five of the Giants' top six linebackers are nursing injuries right now, leaving just three healthy options. Starter Jonathan Casillas (neck) is currently questionable to play Sunday, but if he can't go either, expect Deontae Skinner to make the start at weak-side linebacker.
Robinson injured his quadriceps Sunday against the Rams and is questionable to return.
Robinson missed a pair of games to begin the season due to a concussion, but he's been playing significant snaps due to Jonathan Casillas' neck injury. The 28-year-old has compiled 30 tackles (20 solo) so far this season, and his injury makes the Giants' linebacker corps even thinner.
Robinson has yet to record a sack or turnover this season, but he continues to be involved in the tackle department. He was on the field for 67 snaps (88 percent), so his relatively high workload should lead to more opportunities for tackles, sacks and takeaways going forward.
