Robison (back) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Robison wasn't able to play last week against the Rams but seems likely to suit up this time around after practicing without limitations Wednesday. If not, Stephen Weatherly will presumably take on added snaps again.

Robison (back) didn't practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, Chris Corso of the Vikings' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Robison has been playing very high snap counts as the Vikings' No. 3 defensive end, but he only has 11 tackles (seven solo) and one sack to show for it. If he's unable to play Sunday, Stephen Weatherly could see an increase in snaps to try to contain Rams RB Todd Gurley.

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

EDGE Analysis

It was his first sack of the season. Robison has seen his playing time decrease from 53 snaps per game last season to 40 per game this year. He can still rush the passer, but is getting fewer opportunities as the Vikings aim to keep the 34-year old fresh.

Robison didn't record a tackle or sack in Monday's win over the Saints, but played 38 of 62 snaps on offense.

EDGE Analysis

Robison looks set to be a regular on the defensive line rotation despite some whispers he could see a much reduced role this season at age 34. He may start the season slow after he struggled with a groin injury in the preseason.

Robison (groin) was not listed on the Vikings' final injury report heading into Monday night's season opener against the Saints, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Robison's status for the opener was up in the air after he sat out the entire preseason, as well as being limited at practice this week. However, it appears the Vikings' were just ensuring the 34-year-old's health to start the year. Do not expect him to take on a heavy workload right away, but the veteran figures to see some rotational snaps at defensive end as the season progresses.

Robison (groin) was a limited participant in practice on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Robison did not play at all in the preseason and did not practice earlier this week, so participating in practice at all is a step in the right direction. The 34-year-old's status for Monday's game against the Saints remains uncertain at best.

Robison (leg) rehabbed on the sidelines instead of practicing with the team Tuesday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN NFL Nation reports.

EDGE Analysis

If Robison is unable to play Monday against the Saints, the Vikings will be missing a serious pass-rushing threat. If he's unable to play, expect Danielle Hunter and Everson Griffen to eat up extra snaps with Stephen Weatherly and Ifeadi Odenigbo rotating in sparingly.

Robison missed Sunday's preseason win over the 49ers and hasn't played in the preseason game this season as he has dealt with a leg injury, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. However, he said he expects to play in the regular-season opener.

EDGE Analysis

As a 34-year old veteran, there's no reason for Robison to play in the preseason if he's not at full strength. He'll likely be read for Week 1.
