Minnesota Vikings defensive lineman Brian Robinson suffered
a sprained shoulder during the first quarter of yesterday’s win over the St.
Louis Rams, reports Tom Pelissero of 1500 ESPN.
Brian Robinson left the Minnesota Vikings' locker room
with his right arm in a sling after suffering a sprained AC joint in the first
quarter of Sunday's win over the Rams.
Coach Leslie Frazier said after the game that Robinson is
set to undergo an MRI to determine the extent of his injury. He added that the
defensive lineman would likely be considered day-to-day this week.
Robinson suffered the injury during a run play early in the
game. He remained on the ground for some time until the Vikings’ training staff
helped him off the field. Minnesota confirmed at halftime that the defensive
end would not be returning. He was replaced by Everson Griffin, who went on to
return an interception 29 yards for a touchdown.
Beyond Robinson, the Vikings didn’t sustain any other
significant injuries during yesterday’s contest against St. Louis.
