Redskins Sign LB Roddrick Muckelroy; Place LB Keenan Robinson On IR
The Washington Redskins have placed rookie inside linebacker Keenan Robinson on Injured Reserve, and have filled his roster spot with third-year pro Roddrick Muckelroy a team source confirmed Monday.
Robinson, Washington’s fourth-round pick (119th overall) out of Texas, suffered a torn pectoral muscle late in last Thursday’s game at Dallas.
Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Friday that the rookie was undergoing tests to determine the extent of his injury, but added, “right now, it doesn’t look good.” The coach said that the team feared Robinson would be lost for the season with the same injury that forced fellow linebacker Brian Orakpo out for the year in Week 2.
The 6-foot-3, 238-pound Robinson had been used primarily to spell 15-year veteran London Fletcher, but had played more in the last two weeks with Fletcher hobbled by a sprained left ankle.
