Dunta Robinson Injury Update: Robinson 'Not Participating In Practice'

Fox 5’s Buck Lanford reports from the Branch on Falcons CB Dunta Robinson’s activities:

Robinson’s status continues to keep pace with Eagles WR DeSean Jackson’s, as both players have been diagnosed with concussions and held out of live practice action today.

Robinson will need a doctor’s clearance to play vs. the Bengals.

Both are becoming more and more doubtful for Sunday. Not quite Doubtful, mind you, but doubtful.


DeSean Jackson Injury Update: Not Cleared To Practice, Likely Out Vs. Titans After Dunta Robinson Hit

Eagles coach Andy Reid previously called WR DeSean Jackson a longshot to play this Sunday, and it’s starting to look like he was right.

The injuries suffered by Jackson and Falcons CB Dunta Robinson appear to be similar, with Robinson also awaiting word on whether he can play after suffering a concussion, so this may be foresight into Robinson’s playing status vs. the Bengals as well.


Dunta Robinson Appealing $50,000 Fine For Hitting DeSean Jackson

Dunta Robinson is unhappy. Claims he did not hit DeSean Jackson helmet-to-helmet. He will appeal his $50,000 fine.less than a minute ago via TweetDeck


Dunta Robinson is right — he didn’t hit DeSean Jackson helmet-to-helmet. But that’s not the rule the NFL is quoting.

The league fined Robinson $50,000 for hitting a defenseless player in his upper chest instead of in his midsection. My qualm is with the designation of Jackson as an entirely defenseless player, as he had begun progressing the ball down the field, even if only for a split second and not quite long enough to establish possession.

Not that the NFL cares what qualms Robinson or you or I have here or in any other circumstance.

Do NFL appeals ever work? Somebody look that up for us. For now, let’s assume it’s the equivalent of putting your narrow, bone-compacting church shoes on your wide feet because an adult told you to, but doing it really, really slowly.


Dunta Robinson Fined $50,000 For DeSean Jackson Hit; No Suspension?

Reported on NFL Live – James Harrison fined $75,000 as repeat offender, Dunta Robinson $50,000, along with the $50,000 for B. Meriwether.less than a minute ago via TweetDeck


Absurd, and more of a PR thing than a punishment, since Robinson didn’t do anything beyond his job.

But at least he’s apparently not being suspended, unless those are being announced in a separate batch. ESPN originally reported suspensions would be handed out “by Wednesday.” And, as you may have noted, it’s not yet Wednesday.

Hopefully the only matter preventing Robinson from playing Sunday is his medical status. Last we heard, he’ll need a doctor’s OK to play against the Bengals.

Reports have suggested Robinson feels OK, though football players always seem to think they feel OK.

Robinson was injured when his helmet struck Eagles WR DeSean Jackson's shoulder and neck area during Sunday's game.


DeSean Jackson Injury Update: 'Severe Concussion,' Not Likely To Play Against Tennessee Titans

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson has a severe concussion and some memory loss after Falcons CB Dunta Robinson’s hit Sunday, according to Andy Reid.

“It’s not like amnesia set in,” Reid said. “He remembered his touchdowns and all the things that happened.”

Jackson also has soreness around his shoulders and neck. Reid doesn’t foresee Jackson playing next week against the Tennessee Titans.
