Redskins Rookie LB Keenan Robinson Could Be Lost For The Season
Redskins rookie inside linebacker Keenan Robinson was undergoing tests on Friday to determine if he had suffered a torn pectoral muscle, and the fear is that Robinson could be lost for the season.
Drafted in the fourth round out of Texas, Robinson has played primarily on special teams this season, but he also has been used on certain pass-rushing situations and to spell 15-year veteran London Fletcher.
“I think he’ll be an every-down player for years to come,” Coach Mike Shanahan said in a teleconference on Friday. “The more experience he gets, obviously, the better he’s going to be. He’s got speed, he’s got quickness, he’s not afraid to hit [and[ extremely bright — that’s a big upside.”
Robinson on Thursday played 19 defensive snaps and 21 special teams snaps in Washington’s 38-31 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving night. He appeared to suffer the injury while trying to tackle tight end Jason Witten late in the game.
“Right now, it doesn’t look good,” Shanahan continued.
