Fans flock to Richmond for Training Camp
RICHMOND—Linebacker Keenan Robinson appeared to suffer a shoulder injury in Thursday’s practice and was scheduled to have an MRI, Coach Mike Shanahan said.
Robinson had been sidelined since last November with a torn pectoral muscle but was cleared to join his teammates on the field for the first day of training camp. Robinson, 24, is considered a candidate to succeed London Fletcher.
“It was not the shoulder he had surgery on; it was the other shoulder,” Shanahan said. “We’ll just have to wait and see.”
Shanahan also said that Carriker’s surgery – the defensive end’s third on his right quadriceps – went well. The recovery time, Shanahan said, is four to five months.
“Now we just keep our fingers crossed,” the coach said.
Meantime, cornerback Josh Wilson was moved to the active roster Thursday afternoon after a brief stay on the preseason physically unable to perform (PUP) list. Wilson did not, however, participate in team drills.
“What we wanted to do was test his strength,” Shanahan said. “Some of the tests that he did, I wasn’t positive about his strength. After we got in the weight room and he lifted, we decided to at least let him do the individual work. Hopefully, over the next few days, we’ll feel good enough about his strength …that he’ll be ready to go. He’s not far away.”
