If Keenan Robinson is going to be London Fletcher's heir at inside linebacker he will have to wait another year to get started.
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network is reporting that he second-year player suffered a torn pec during practice on Thursday and will be lost for the season.
An league source told CSN Washington Redskins Insider Tarik El-Bashir that the diagnosis was for Robinson to miss three to five months but that the team is expecting a longer recovery period. The source said that no decision has been made about placing Robinson in injured reserve.
Yes, that's the same injury that ended his 2012 season after 11 games. But that injury was to his right pec; this time the tear is in his right shoulder.
The loss is a blow to the depth in the Redskins' inside linebacker corps. Behind starters Fletcher and and Perry Riley the Redskins have veteran journeymen Bryan Kehl and Roddrick Muckelroy and undrafted rookies Marvin Burdette, William Compton, and Jeremy Kimbrough.
