Robinson returned to practice in a limited fashion this week after missing Sunday's win over the Panthers, but his snap count could be held in check as starting defensive tackles Damon Harrison and Da'Shawn Hand are both at full strength.
Robinson was a limited practice participant this week to earn the questionable tag after sitting out Sunday's game against the Panthers. Ricky Jean Francois would be set for increased snap as as a rotational defensive tackle should Robinson be sidelined.
Robinson (ankle) will not play Sunday against the Panthers.
Robinson was unable to log a practice in any capacity this week. The injury came in last week's loss to the Bears. Robinson is one of three defensive linemen on the Lions' injury report -- joining Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) and Damon Harrison (shoulder) -- but he's the only one officially ruled out.
Robinson picked up the injury in Sunday's 34-22 loss to the Bears, during which he played 39 total snaps and accrued one tackle. With Damon Harrison (shoulder) also hurting, the Lions could be lacking in defensive-tackle depth if neither player is able to make it back for the Week 11 tilt with the Panthers.
Robinson tallied 53 tackles, an assisted sack, six batted passes, one interception, one touchdown and one forced fumble over 16 games in 2017.
While not an IDP asset at this juncture, Robinson is developing into a solid interior defensive lineman for the Lions. Most impressive has been his awareness for such a young player, as the 2016 second-rounder again swatted down his share of pass attempts in 2017 and now has 13 batted passes in two seasons as a pro. His role could expand in 2018 if Haloti Ngata (biceps), an unrestricted free agent, doesn't return to Detroit.
