Report: Redskins lose Keenan Robinson for season to torn pectoral

AP

Washington Redskins linebacker Keenan Robinson saw his rookie season come to an abrupt end last November when he suffered a torn pectoral on Thanksgiving against the Dallas Cowboys.

A torn pectoral will now cost him his sophomore season as well.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Robinson suffered a torn pectoral during Thursday’s practice and will miss the entire season. It’s the other pectoral he injured this time around.

Robinson played in 11 games with the Redskins as a rookie after being selected in the fourth round of last year’s draft out of the University of Texas. He recorded 11 tackles in limited duty last season.

  1. Cowboys and Skins, too many injuries in camp, 2 years in a row. Off season conditioning, bad training staff, pushing too hard, or what? Gotta think its a combo of bad staff and bad shape since rg3 was able to pass the conditioning test and weed heads Fred Davis/Trent Williams. Rg3 on 1 leg can still easily pass “not take part in” Albert Haynesworth couldn’t. What a waste of talent that was.
    Cowboys are already down 2 dlineman after switching to a 4-3. I’m thinking the Giants could really struggle on d this year…… So he Eagles win the East????

    Holy Mary mother of god

  2. Don’t worry brother… RG3 is superhuman. He can play quarterback and linebacker. The Skins are the greatest team in the universe. Hail to the Redskins…the greatest team ever.

  3. Rivalry aside, that’s terrible. It’s hard to imagine working hard all of your life to achieve something only to have a setback two years in a row. Here’s hoping that he has a fast recovery and comes back strong next year.

  4. The Browns D’Qwell Jackson had the same sequence of injuries and came back and had a great 3rd year. Hang in there Keenan!

  5. Always tough to see a college favorite of mine to go down (virtually anybody I guess for that matter). Even as a Cowboys fan I still got love for Orakpo, Robinson, and the rest of the Longhorn faithful around the league. Heal up and come back strong, big guy.

  6. These guys need to start mixing in some yoga with the weights. Ask Ray Lewis what he thinks about it. Stretching is crucial people. In fairness, Keenan could love Yoga. But the majority of players don’t do it.

  7. Overdoing it in the weight room perhaps? Seems rather strange to tear two different pectorals in consecutive seasons.

  8. My Washington “REDSKINS” (and you can put that in all caps) won the NFC East with an $18m cap hit.

    Losing Robinson, who saw limited action last year, hurts his development more than the team.

  9. This sucks for Robinson. With Zo gone to AZ he was expected to be big contributor on special teams & a rotational LB. I feel bad for him.

    Orakpo is coming off consecutive season with the same injury too. Makes you wonder doesn’t it? Is this just a freak occurrence, or is there something the Skins training staff is/isn’t doing?

    Strange brew to say the least.

  10. Man. It doesn’t even matter who you’re a fan of, this kind of thing sucks for the team, but it REALLY sucks for the kid. Best of luck rehabbing.

  11. Seems low probability… I wonder if he does something “wrong” that puts him at a greater risk of tearing his pecks.

    I don’t follow training camp all that much, but judging from what little I saw on the NFLN last night… I’d expect the biggest training camp injury to be a stubbed toe from walking around.

    Everything bad that happens to the redskins is just a karmic come around to their insufferable fan base.

    ————-

    Yeah, they are not classy like you, using a man’s injury to take a cheap shot at a bunch of fans.

  13. Those who chose to make disparaging remarks…such as referring Haynesworth (umm..lets get past that already), calling the DC Pro Football team classless, etc….. please let us know who you are a fan of. It will make it more easier when the DC Pro Football team comes in and kicks your arse. The only fans I see based off their blog name that have the balls to show who they are a fan of are the idiot Steeler, and Raven fans. Most of your remarks make me laugh because you continually refuse to see our turn around, which by the way is only in it’s early stages, so we will continue to improve in years to come (did you hear that Cowboy, Eagle, and Giant fans), while you keep referring to years past. Let’s get into the now and talk about how Shanahan, and Bruce Allen have turned this organization around, and an owner who has finally learned by his previous mistakes, who now get’s it. Let’s talk about that…..Whether you like it or not the DC Pro Football team will be a perennial playoff contender for years to come, with Superbowl potential. Sorry haters, it’s just a fact…HTTR!!

    Both from Texas, both training staffs deserve a look.

    Poor guy. At least he won’t have to be inin Richmond with the rest of Virginia’s team…..

    Or Gettysburg, resting on their accomplishments…

  16. 58 comments. About a guy who would have, at best, been a rotational player at the most rotated spot on the field. Ranking San Fran as the number one team in the league brought in 116 comments.

    Sometimes I worry about whether the Redskins are going to be a force in the league next year, but numbers like these totally reassure me.
