Vikings placed CB Josh Robinson on injured reserve with a fractured sternum, ending his season.
Robinson had been sidelined since Week 11 and will officially be shut down.

Robinson had just 58 tackles and a forced fumble prior to being injured. He'll face competition for the nickel job in 2014.

Vikings coach Leslie Frazier revealed Monday CB Josh Robinson "might" miss the rest of the season with a fractured sternum.
The 2-8 Vikings don't have much season left. Although Robinson has played better of late, he was a major part of Minnesota's early-season deficiencies in pass defense, proving an inadequate replacement for slot corner Antoine Winfield. The Vikings won't be able to count on Robinson as a nickel back in 2014.

ESPN 1500 Twin Cities reports the Vikings are concerned about Josh Robinson's transition to nickel cornerback.
Robinson is set to replace Antoine Winfield in the slot this season, but has struggled early in camp and profiles as a liability against the run. "Josh has never been inside before, so it's a big transition," DC Alan Williams said."He's going to make mistakes." Even if Robinson continues to struggle, he's likely locked into the nickel job. With Jacob Lacey as his only competition, the Vikings don't have any other viable options.

Robinson has been tabbed as Antoine Winfield's replacement. The second-year man never played slot corner while at Central Florida and never profiled as a strong tackler.

2012 third-round pick Josh Robinson is expected to be the Vikings' nickel back this season after the Xavier Rhodes first-round pick.
Rhodes and Chris Cook will start outside with Robinson in the slot corner role vacated by Antoine Winfield. A.J. Jefferson will get the first crack at dime back. Robinson showed flashes as a rookie, but was highly inconsistent. NFC North teams figure to try to pick on him with Randall Cobb, and with the Bears and Lions respectively moving Brandon Marshall and Calvin Johnson into the slot.
