Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards said Robison (pectoral) will probably be ready for the start of training camp, Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Robison will seemingly miss OTAs and minicamp after suffering a pectoral injury while working out. His Week 1 availability doesn't seem to be in question, but it apparently isn't a sure thing that he'll be ready for the start of training camp. Coming off a disappointing 4.5-sack, 24-tackle season, Robison is expected to start at left defensive end. He averaged 8.5 sacks and 39.3 tackles from 2011 to 2013.

Robison suffered a pectoral injury while working out Thursday, Peter Schrager of FOX Sports reports.

A torn pectoral would threaten Robison's Week 1 availability, while anything less would likely be a non-issue by the time training camp rolls around. The 32-year-old had just 4.5 sacks in 2014, after recording eight or more in each of the previous three seasons. Robison started 63 out of a possible 64 games the past four years, and he's slated to start across from Everson Griffen in 2015.

Robison (glute) had a sack and two total tackles in Sunday's win over Washington.

He missed a day of practice with a bad bruise on his backside, but it didn't appear to limit him during Sunday's game. Robison has just 3.5 sacks, but he could get more the second half with opposing offensive lines needing to focus on rising talents Everson Griffen and Anthony Barr.

Robison (glute) is active for Sunday's game against Washington.

Robison's glute is not expected to hold him back Sunday. He has just 1.5 sacks this season, but the Vikings' defense as a whole has been excellent at getting to the passer, so maybe Robison's turn to get in on the action will come soon.

Robison (glue) was a full participant in Friday's practice and is probable against Washington.

Robison has just 1.5 sacks this season despite the defensive line overall putting up strong sack totals, so he may be a candidate to get more sacks if defenses focus on Everson Griffen (who has eight sacks). It doesn't look like Robison's injury will be a concern this weekend.

Robison had three tackles and a sack in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay.

Robison has just 1.5 sacks this season despite the defensive line overall putting up strong sack totals. Perhaps he'll record more sacks if opposing offensive lines give Everson Griffen (who has eight sacks) extra attention.
