Josh Robinson Injured, Out For Extended Time

It was learned today that Minnesota Vikings cornerback Josh Robinson has a fractured sternum that will keep him out of action for an extended period of time.  Robinson had been acting as the team’s nickel cornerback this season and had filled in on the outside when injuries were hitting the team hard.

This is a blow to a team that already has depth problems at cornerback.  Both injuries and inexperience have hurt this team badly this year, and losing another player will definitely not help.  Minnesota only has Chris Cook, Xavier Rhodes, Marcus Sherels, A.J. Jefferson, and Shaun Prater left on the 53-man roster.

Leslie Frazier said that Robinson could miss the rest of this season with the injury, while some media outlets are reporting that he could miss as little as 4 weeks.  Either way, this struggling defense will continue to struggle, with or without Robinson on the team.
