Allen Robinson will miss the rest of the season

Wide receiver Allen Robinson‘s first season with the Rams is over.

Rams head coach Sean McVay said after Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs that Robinson will miss the final six games of the year with the foot injury that kept him from playing this weekend. McVay said, via Stu Jackson of the team’s website, that a CT scan on Friday showed a stress fracture on the navicular bone in Robinson’s foot and he will need to have the injury surgically repaired.

Robinson’s move to Los Angeles led to high hopes about what he would bring to the offense, but it turned out to be  one of many disappointments for the defending Super Bowl champions instead. Robinson had 33 catches for 339 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games for the team.

Cooper Kupp is also out after ankle surgery and the Rams are now 3-8 while playing with an injury riddled offensive line, which should lead to more questions about whether the team will also shut Matthew Stafford, who is in the concussion protocol and dealing with a neck injury, down for the year.

  1. Even the coach took a helmet to the face today . Ram’s definitely used all their mojo last year.

  2. Remember when everybody thought Robinson to the rams was a shrewd signing? Seems like a lifetime ago.

  3. The downside of the Rams trading away so many draft picks and having high priced veterans is that they could need 2-3 down years to get back to a normal salary cap (meaning not under tough limits), and they won’t have any high draft picks to help. The pick they are sending the Lions this year should be a top 10 pick, maybe even top 5.

    They did get two Super Bowl appearances out of it all and one Super Bowl win, so you could say it was all worth it, but if it takes them 5-7 years to be competitive again, there might be a lot of fans who start forgetting those Super Bowl appearances. Just see how many Giants fans were pumped about their 2 Super Bowl wins of this century after they had several sub-500 seasons.

  4. I don’t think trading a couple of first round draft picks did much damage considering about half the team is on IR. But the draft pick traded to the Lions is now the big story. No one can accuse the Rams of tanking.
