Washington's Keenan Robinson Out For The Season
By Allen Kim
Keenan Robinson, linebacker for the Washington Redskins, is going to miss the entire 2013 NFL season after tearing his left pectoral muscle, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. The injury occurred during Thursday’s practice at training camp.
Robinson tore his right pectoral muscle on Thanksgiving last year, and he missed the rest of the season as a result. He called it a “freak injury,” unlike the arm tackle that ended his rookie season prematurely. After working his way back from injury and receiving full clearance to participate in training camp, Robinson didn’t even make it past the first day before succumbing to another major injury.
This is an unfortunate situation for the former University of Texas product. He was expected to compete for more time at linebacker after the loss of Lorenzo Alexander this season, but he may never get the opportunity to do so after a second season-ending injury. His future in Washington could potentially be in danger now.
