Keenan Robinson out for the season

Updated: July 26, 2013

The Washington Redskins got hit for the second time by a long-term injury bug.  First, the Redskins learned a week ago that DE Adam Carriker would need, and has had, additional knee surgery.  He is expected to miss the season and will need at least 3 to 5 months of rehab.  Yesterday, the Redskins lost ILB Keenan Robinson for the season with a torn pectoral muscle.

Robinson missed much of last season with a similar injury.  Fighting his way back, Robinson was suppose to provide critical depth at inside linebacker and was highly regarded as the heir apparent for London Fletcher.  Just one day into training camp, the Redskins will reopen the search for depth at inside linebacker as Robinson suffered another torn pectoral muscle and will require season ending surgery.

Bryan Kehl and Rodderick Muckleroy could benefit on the roster.  Both are depth insider lienbackers and will have to earn opportunities to earn playing time behind Fletcher, who is now 38 years-old.  Others in camp:  Will Compton, Marvin Burdette, and Jeremy Kimbrough.
