Patrick Robinson Injury: Saints place former Eagles cornerback on injured reserve

This sucks.

NFL: NFC Championship-Minnesota Vikings at Philadelphia Eagles James Lang-USA TODAY Sports

The New Orleans Saints are placing former Philadelphia Eagles slot cornerback Patrick Robinson on injured reserve, according to a report from NFL Network.

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.

P-Rob will always be a legend for his time with the Eagles. No one will ever forget his crucial pick-six against the Vikings in the NFC Championship Game.
