Laurent Robinson Brushes Off Shoulder Injury

Robinson dismissed the injury following the loss to Arizona, saying he'll be "ready to roll" next week



    Laurent Robinson’s streak of games with a touchdown reception came to an end at five on Sunday, as the Dallas Cowboys fell to the Cardinals in overtime in Arizona, but it appears that Robinson is okay after sustaining a shoulder injury in the first half.

    Robinson, who finished with four catches for 72 yards in the loss, suffered the injury in the second quarter after Arizona defensive end Darnell Dockett came down on the shoulder while making a tackle. Shortly thereafter, Robinson left the field to undergo examinations in the locker room.

    Fortunately for the Cowboys, Robinson trotted back out for the end of the half after having some extra padding fixed to the shoulder, played the rest of the game and expects to be fine moving forward.

    It’s nothing,” Robinson said, per ESPN Dallas. “I’ll shake it off and be ready to roll.”

    This is good news for Dallas, as Robinson has been a crucial contributor since Miles Austin went out with a hamstring injury around a month ago. On the year, Robinson has posted 626 yards and seven touchdowns on 42 receptions.
