Robinson was waived by the Panthers on Tuesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Robinson's spot with the team became expendable following management's decision to acquire veteran lineman Marshall Newhouse in a trade with Buffalo. Robinson, a 2015 fifth-round pick, has struggled to get his feet beneath him in the early portion of his career. It seems as though he's approaching a critical period of time that could define the trajectory of his career.
Robinson suffered a foot injury in late August before being dealt to Carolina from Detroit for a draft pick. It appears that is no longer a concern and he should be available for the regular-season opener Sunday against the Cowboys.
Robinson did recently suffer a foot injury, so the trade may be pending a physical. Robinson will provide the Panthers with much-needed depth on the offensive line this season.
Robinson sustained a foot injury in Thursday's preseason game against the Browns, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
The severity of the injury remains unclear as there was no indication of whether Robinson returned to the game. The 26-year-old had an injury-plagued first three seasons and could be a victim of roster cutdowns over the next couple days.
Robinson (foot) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.
Robinson, who was activated off injured reserve during the second week of November, was a limited participant in practice throughout the week before the Lions listed him as active for Sunday. The 25-year-old could draw the start at right tackle in place of the injured Ricky Wagner (ankle, back).
