Dunta Robinson cleared after last week’s concussion


The Falcons don’t even play this weekend, but they’ve already recorded a win.

Cornerback Dunta Robinson has been cleared through the league’s concussion protocol, and was back on the practice field Friday, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Robinson was initially referred to as having a “head injury,” before they admitted Monday he was in the concussion protocol, meaning he had to be cleared by an independent neurologist.

The Falcons have home-field advantage through the NFC playoffs, and will play either the Vikings, Seahawks or Redskins in the Divisional Round next weekend.

All three are playing with a bit of momentum at the end of the regular season, and any would present a tough out for a team that hasn’t won a playoff game under the current administration.

  1. The NFL has a problem with players coming back the week after a concussion.

    So they hire outside neurologists that clear them to come back a week after a concussion?

    Every player outside of Vick seems to come back the next week.

    Was is it really a problem to begin with?

  2. Boy, is this a relief. The Dirty Birds definitely had to make sure Dunta would be declared active in time to film this week’s episode of D-block.

    I’m now ready to go out on a limb and say he finally won’t get beat deep this week.
