Report: Redskins lose Keenan Robinson for season to torn pectoral

Keenan Robinson 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.

    Guarantees a 6-10 season. You can’t replace Keenan Robinson.

    That’s a real shame. I loved him on “In Living Color.”

    Never mind. Found it.

    HGH anyone? This kind of injury is common with users… and we have 2 in as many seasons? Okay…

  6. bossbertozzi says: Jul 26, 2013 2:17 AM

    What are the chances of that?

    Weak pecs bro.

    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

    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.

    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.

  11. dylude says: Jul 26, 2013 2:40 AM

    One of my close friends, he will fight back, believe that!

  12. asublimeday says: Jul 26, 2013 2:45 AM

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

  13. filthymcnastyog says: Jul 26, 2013 2:47 AM

    who tears both pectorals?

  14. icdogg says: Jul 26, 2013 2:57 AM

    Ouch.

  15. tuberippin says: Jul 26, 2013 3:03 AM

    Do any of these guys ever learn to tackle properly? Jeez.

  16. 2fleas says: Jul 26, 2013 3:03 AM

    Let me guess logicalvoice… This was the best linebacker in the history of the NFL.

  17. souldogdave says: Jul 26, 2013 3:12 AM

    weak pecs

  18. nflhawks says: Jul 26, 2013 3:32 AM

    I wonder if it was caused by that crappy field? No, but seriously that sucks! The field and the injury.

  19. aaroncurryisbust says: Jul 26, 2013 3:36 AM

    And nothing of value was lost.

  20. Florio_Jr. says: Jul 26, 2013 3:39 AM

    I don’t care who it is, what team they’re on, etc. Hearing this for any team this early is always horrible!

  21. bloodisred says: Jul 26, 2013 4:50 AM

    What’s the deal with former UT LBs in Washington tearing pectorals?

  22. saltyr8r says: Jul 26, 2013 5:16 AM

    Not injury prone at all…

  23. floratiotime says: Jul 26, 2013 5:48 AM

    Quick. Long term contract. A player this fragile belongs in Dixie … I mean DC.

  24. crush22 says: Jul 26, 2013 6:17 AM

    What happened??
    Shanny make him play injured too?

  25. robertgriffintheturd says: Jul 26, 2013 6:20 AM

    Thanks for the info, they wont report on this here in D.C., because his name isn’t RG3.

  26. youarejealousof6rings says: Jul 26, 2013 7:00 AM

    LOL!

  27. bathroombenlovemachine says: Jul 26, 2013 7:01 AM

    The Redskins are a classless organization.

    Eagles will win Super Bowl 48

    Michael Vick will be 2013 NFL MVP

    Gotta take better care of those man-boobs.

  29. trollingforjustice says: Jul 26, 2013 7:32 AM

    the number of players injuring or tearing their pectoral muscles has been on the rise the past few years. can anyone shed some light on why this may be occurring?

  30. brownspower says: Jul 26, 2013 7:35 AM

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

  31. ravensdominate says: Jul 26, 2013 7:36 AM

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

  32. wryly1 says: Jul 26, 2013 7:36 AM

    Well, at least the issue of who their QB will be this year is settled — Kirk Cousins.

  33. dirtybird28 says: Jul 26, 2013 7:54 AM

    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.

  34. urfinished says: Jul 26, 2013 7:57 AM

    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.

  35. redskinpotatoes says: Jul 26, 2013 8:09 AM

    What the heck is our training staff doing? I feel like the Redskins have more torn pectorals than any other team.

  36. therealsmiley says: Jul 26, 2013 8:11 AM

    That stinks! Keep your head Keenan! Hail!

  37. cshearing says: Jul 26, 2013 8:14 AM

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

  38. vtsquirm says: Jul 26, 2013 8:33 AM

    how do you tear a pectoral muscle when you’re not even having contact drills yet????????

  39. romosmicrodongs says: Jul 26, 2013 8:35 AM

    huge loss.. guy was being groomed to replace fletch.

    what’s the deal with our LBs and torn pectorals?!?

  40. cash804 says: Jul 26, 2013 8:55 AM

    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.

    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.

  42. heyguru1969 says: Jul 26, 2013 8:56 AM

    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.

  43. slugdc says: Jul 26, 2013 8:59 AM

    Poor guy. How frustrating has that got to be?

  44. jwcarlson says: Jul 26, 2013 9:24 AM

    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.

    Sounds like the most painful thing ever. I don’t get how it happens. Lifting?

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

  50. Patriot42 says: Jul 26, 2013 10:17 AM

    Dog gone it I hate to see the dawgs going down like this……NAAAAH!!!!

  52. cowboyhater says: Jul 26, 2013 10:52 AM

    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.

  55. painsyndicate says: Jul 26, 2013 11:40 AM

    No worries, RG3 and Orakpo will be joining you shortly.

  56. thirdistheworrd says: Jul 26, 2013 11:43 AM

    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.

  57. dikshuttle says: Jul 26, 2013 2:40 PM

    Gee. Just like Orakpo. Gee. Went to Texas.

    Same PED’s. Same injury.
