Robinson suffered a broken ankle during the Saints’ win over the Falcons in Week 3 and had to be carted off the field. That really sucks.
It’s unclear if Robinson will be healthy enough to return later this season. For now, we know he’ll out for at least eight weeks due to the nature of being placed on injured reserve. That means he won’t be eligible to suit up for when the Saints host the Eagles in Week 11.
Losing Robinson, who signed a four-year, $20 million contract to return to New Orleans earlier this year, hurts a Saints pass defense that’s already been struggling this season.
It’s really a bummer to see Robinson’s season potentially end like this. The 31-year-old has dealt has been plagued by injuries in recent years but he mostly stayed healthy with the Eagles, helping Philadelphia win the Super Bowl earlier this year.
