Robinson (suspension) was activated Monday, Al Iannazzone of Newsday.com reports.
The Jets are hopeful that Robinson can add an immediate boost to the secondary. Per the Jets' brass, Robinson figures to ease his way into the swing of things, but he could develop into a critical component on the back end of the defense. With Robinson on board, New York let go of veteran safety J.J. Wilcox.
Robinson has served his four-game suspension, but the Jets won't use him in Week 5 against the Broncos. He'll likely be in the fold Week 6 against the Colts but it's not expected he'll fill a starting role.
Robinson (suspension) has been reinstated from his four-game suspension, Mike Clay of ESPN.com reports.
The Jets have one week to decide on Robinson's roster fate. There is some speculation that New York will open up a roster spot for Robinson with the intentions of playing him in the back end of the defense. Even if Robinson is activated to the 53-man roster, don't expect him to come out guns blazing in the early going after having already missed a quarter of the season.
Robinson was suspended Wednesday for the first four games of the 2018 season for violating the league's policy on substances of abuse, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Robinson was arrested last December on chargers of marijuana possession. The suspension could put him on thin ice with the team, as Robinson wasn't previously considered a lock to make the Jets' final roster.
Robinson was arrested in December following a traffic stop in Morris County, N.J., Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports.
Robinson was pulled over for driving carelessly when the police found marijuana-laced candy in his car. The Jets have no comment on the legal matter at this time. Robinson saw a major drop in reps once he was traded from the 49ers to the Jets in October, logging two tackles across six games in New York. The 24-year-old, who has had a troubled legal history, is under contract through the 2019 season, but this latest offense could hurt his chances of returning to the team.
