Keenan Robinson: Hanging up cleats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson has elected to retire, Mike Rodak of reports.

Robinson, who's been in the league since 2012, signed in late July with the Bills but apparently wasn't in line for meaningful snaps and might not have even made the team. This will be one less question mark for Buffalo, which already has several decisions to make regarding an unproven linebacking corps.

Bills' Keenan Robinson: Inks deal with Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (quad) signed a contract with the Bills on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Robinson, according to Joe Buscaglia of, 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.

Giants' Keenan Robinson: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (quadriceps) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

Robinson suffered a quad injury in Week 9's loss to the Rams, bringing his season to a 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.

Giants' Keenan Robinson: Set to sit Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Giants' Keenan Robinson: Hurts quad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Giants' Keenan Robinson: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson led the Giants in tackles with nine (six solo) in Sunday's 24-7 loss to the Seahawks.

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.

Giants' Keenan Robinson: Clears concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (concussion) was a full participant at Giants practice Thursday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Robinson has finally cleared the league-mandated protocol after sustaining a concussion in early August. The 28-year-old will likely resume a role as a special teams contributor and backup to Jonathan Casillas.

Giants' Keenan Robinson: Out for Monday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (concussion) has been ruled out for Monday's game against Detroit, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Robinson is used mostly as a depth linebacker and special teamer, so his loss won't alter the game plan too much. Should veteran starter Jonathan Casillas fall victim to the injury bug, J.T. Thomas seems like the likely replacement.

Giants' Keenan Robinson: Limited participant Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (concussion) was a limited participant at in the Giants' practice Friday.

This is good news after Robinson did not practice Thursday in addition to last week. The 28-year-old has been in the concussion protocol since early August and remains a question mark for Monday night's game against the Lions.

Giants' Keenan Robinson: Ruled out for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (concussion) will not play in Sunday's season opener against the Cowboys.

Robinson has been in the concussion protocol for over a month now, and since the linebacker was still unable to practice this week, his absence Sunday comes as no surprise. Robinson should be considered week-to-week at this point, while Jonathan Casillas is expected to take majority of the snaps at weak-side linebacker this weekend.

Giants' Keenan Robinson: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson is still in concussion protocol and sat out of practice Wednesday.

Robinson suffered this concussion over a month ago and missed the entire preseason. Little has been said about his progression through the protocol, so it seems farfetched that he'll be ready to go Sunday against the Cardinals. Expect the fully-capable Jonathan Casillas to take a majority of snaps at weak-side linebacker.

Giants' Keenan Robinson: In concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson is currently going through the league's concussion protocol, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Robinson took a blow to the head on Thursday and could miss a week or more if it's confirmed that he suffered a concussion. If he's forced to sit out, look for Deontae Skinner to see some additional time with the second-team defense.

Giants' Keenan Robinson: Re-signs with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson re-signed with the Giants on Monday, Mike Garafolo of reports.

Robinson played a pivotal role solidifying the Giants' defense last season and ended up with 83 tackles, 54 of which were registered as solo tackles, after playing in all 16 regular season games. At 27 years old, he's likely in store for a similar workload during the 2017 season.

Giants' Keenan Robinson: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (shoulder) will play Sunday against the Lions.

After missing the entire week of practice, Robinson will suit up Sunday. He could see his reps monitored because of the injury, in which case Mark Herzlich could have an expanded role on defense.

Giants' Keenan Robinson: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's tilt with the Lions.

Robinson has been absent from the practice field all week due to an unspecified shoulder aliment. The injury seemed to appear out of nowhere, as Robinson logged 51 defensive snaps in last Sunday's win over the Cowboys. Look for more updates to come before kickoff, with Deontae Skinner potentially seeing extra time on the field should Robinson be ruled out.

Giants' Keenan Robinson: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (groin) returned to practice on Sunday, Art Stapleton of the Record reports.

Robinson missed Friday's preseason opener against the Dolphins with a groin injury, but after some additional rest and recovery, he was back on the practice field Sunday. Robinson is currently fighting for a starter's role at linebacker, so he'll look to have a strong preseason debut versus the Bills on Saturday.

Giants' Keenan Robinson: Out for preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Giants' Keenan Robinson: Good chance to start at MLB
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson has done well in offseason workouts and is a likely candidate for the Giants' starting MLB spot, Ralph Vacchiano of Daily News reports.

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.

Giants' Keenan Robinson: Signs with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants signed 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.

Redskins' Keenan Robinson: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
