New York Giants linebacker Keenan Robinson, who just returned to full practice this week after clearing the NFL concussion protocol, left practice early on Friday. The team announced early Friday evening that Robinson is now back in the concussion protocol.
Robinson was a key part of the Giants’ defense last season. Though he as not technically a starter, Robinson played in nickel and dime packages and was on the field more than Kelvin Sheppard, last season’s starting middle linebacker.
Another linebacker, Mark Herzlich, is still not practicing due to a stinger. J.T. Thomas III, returning from a knee injury, has yet to participate in team drills.
Young linebackers like Calvin Munson, Curtis Grant and Deontae Skinner are getting increased opportunities due to the injuries.
Per reports from practice, here is some of the other injury information:
- Cornerback Eli Apple (ankle) did very little. He seems unlikely to play Monday vs. the Cleveland Browns.
- Wide receivers Darius Powe (hamstring) and Dwayne Harris did not practice.
- Wide receiver Andrew Turzilli and offensive lineman Adam Gettis left practice early.
