The No. 2 overall pick from the 2014 draft enjoyed a revival in 2018, starting at left tackle in each of Cleveland's final eight games. The team presumably wants to give Robinson another shot in that role, but he didn't quite show enough to warrant a long-term commitment. An impressive 2019 campaign would put him in line for a huge payday next offseason.
Robinson saw some reps at left tackle with the first-team offense during Monday's practice, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Regardless of Monday's practice, coach Hue Jackson said Joel Bitonio remains the team's starting left tackle, and that the team was just working on different offensive-line combinations. Robinson is still expected to begin the season in a reserve lineman role.
Robinson (concussion) returned to practice Thursday, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.
Robinson sustained a concussion during the first week of training camp, but has cleared the league's protocol and returned to action. He provides key depth for the Browns on the offensive line and would likely be next in line if starting right tackle Chris Hubbard went down with an injury.
Head coach Hue Jackson confirmed Saturday that Robinson is in the concussion protocol, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Robinson, a former No. 2 overall pick in 2014, will need to clear the league's measures before returning to practice. With it being only the first week of training camp, the offensive tackle should have plenty of time to recover in advance of the regular season. For now, look for Victor Salako or Desmond Harrison to see increased snaps with the second unit.
Robinson was carted off the field on Friday due to a head injury, Pat McManamon of ESPN.com reports.
Robinson appeared to have suffered a concussion, though he'll undergo tests to confirm that diagnosis. Signed in June, Robinson had been taking reps with the second unit during the first few days of camp. If he did suffer a concussion he'll likely miss at least a few days to a week of practice, during which time Victor Salako or Desmond Harrison will figure to see some extra reps.
