New York Giants Staring Defensive Back to Miss time

A New York Giants starter is going to miss time for a surprising reason. Head coach Brian Daboll announced that cornerback Aaron Robinson will be out in Week 2 due to having his appendix removed.  Robinson played a crucial role in the Giant's shocking 21-20 victory over the Tennessee Titans, playing 95% of the total defensive snaps and notching five combined tackles. Defensive backs Adoree' Jackson, Cor'Dale Flott, and Darnay Holmes will likely pick up the slack in his absence.

Robinson was picked 71st overall by the Giants in the 2021 NFL Draft and contributed two starts in nine appearances as a rookie. He earned season-opener starting duties this year, but it remains to be seen how much time his appendectomy will cost him. Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger once missed the 2006 season opener four days after the procedure, but he was ready the following week. He went onto perhaps his worst season as a pro, leading the league in interceptions and posting a career-low in passer rating for a qualifying season. Quarterback Joe Burrow also famously underwent the procedure this offseason; he and the Cincinnati Bengals stumbled out the gate in Week 1.
