Josh Robinson DB MIN 3 days ago

Minnesota Vikings cornerback Josh Robinson was placed on the physically unable to perform list Sunday due to a partially torn pectoral, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Robinson suffered the injury in early June, putting his status for the start of the season in question. The Vikings can activate him from the PUP list at any point during training camp, but if Robinson stays on the list to start the regular season, he will have to miss the first six games. Even if he were healthy, Robinson might find it difficult to earn a significant role after the Vikings upgraded their cornerback depth in the offseason. The team signed veteran cornerback Terence Newman to a one-year, $2.5 million contract in March, and then selected cornerback Trae Waynes out of Michigan State in the first round of the NFL Draft. Waynes and Newman will likely compete for the starting role across from Xavier Rhodes.

Robinson is recovering from a partially torn pectoral muscle suffered in early June, Ben Goessling of ESPN.com reports.

Robinson's health concern stems from a practice prior to the Vikings' minicamp last month, which places his status in some doubt for training camp at the end of July. If he's at all hindered to start the season, first-round pick Trae Waynes is poised to move up the depth chart and potentially be an every-down starter from Week 1.
