Falcons CB Dunta Robinson Cleared From Concussion Protocol
Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson was cleared from the league’s concussion protocol program and returned to practice on Friday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Robinson suffered a concussion after leading with his head while trying to tackle Tampa Bay running back Doug Martin last Sunday.
“It was very good to get Dunta back,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said. “Dunta has been cleared to start practicing again. It’s good to have him back. It was a great turnaround from Sunday to Friday.”
The Falcons had advised Robinson to stop leading with his helmet. He suffered a concussion on a similar hit back during the 2010 season.
“We address it all the time, not just with Dunta, but there is a certain strike zone that you try to hit when you’re tackling,” Smith said. “You really want to keep the head out of it.”
