Vikings cornerback Josh Robinson has pectoral muscle injury

Star Tribune Sports - Sat, 07/04/2015 - 15:06
Vikings cornerback Josh Robinson has a torn pectoral muscle injury, an NFL source confirmed. The injury happened during the Vikings’ June mini-camp, ESPN reported today. The severity of the injury is unknown; it was originally reported by @natjordanNFL on Twitter. Robinson declined to comment on the injury, but texted he was looking forward to “playing with the Vikings this season.” Robinson was a third round pick in 2012 and has played regularly since. The Vikings took cornerback Trae Waynes with their first round pick this year after drafting cornerback Xavier Rhodes in the first round in 2013. The Vikings lost two starters, Phil Loadholt and Brandon Fusco, on the offensive line last year because of torn pectoral muscles.  Defensive end Brian Robison was limited in the offseason because of a pectoral injury as well.
