Dunta Robinson injury: Falcons CB plans to return for playoff game

Kevin C. Cox

Robinson told reporters he had a much worse concussion in the 2010 season.

The Atlanta Falcons will be making good use of their bye week in the NFC playoffs with some key players trying to get healthy. Besides defensive end John Abraham doing all he can to get over a sprained ankle, cornerback Dunta Robinson believes he'll be ready to go by Jan. 13 after sustaining a concussion on Sunday.

Robinson was injured against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the final game of the season. He told reporters he thinks a concussion he sustained in the 2010 season against the Philadelphia Eagles was actually worse since he had to be helped off the field. Robinson sustained the current injury when he lowered his head to try and tackle running back Doug Martin in the first quarter.

The ninth-year cornerback out of South Carolina recorded 80 tackles on the season and one and a half sacks in addition to an interception. The Falcons will face the lowest-seeded team remaining after this weekend's NFC playoff games.
