Injuries have become a common theme each week for the Los Angeles Rams and they’ll be without another one of their offensive weapons for the rest of the season. After being inactive in Week 12, the Rams have officially placed Allen Robinson on injured reserve.
The veteran wideout was dealing with a foot issue in the days leading up to the Week 12 contest against the Kansas City Chiefs before he underwent more tests. Robinson was discovered to have a stress fracture in his foot on Friday and it was revealed that he would need season-ending surgery.
In his first year with the Rams, Robinson hauled in 33 of his 52 targets for 339 yards and three touchdowns. A lack of practice time with Matthew Stafford in the offseason and injuries to the offensive line could have led to Robinson struggles in the offense and he’ll look to have a bounce-back year in 2023.
With Robinson sidelined, the likes of Van Jefferson, Tutu Atwell, Lance McCutcheon, and Ben Skowronek will get more opportunities moving forward, especially with Cooper Kupp also on injured reserve.
