Los Angeles Rams Officially Place Wide Receiver on Injured Reserve

The Los Angeles Rams' season-long nightmare continues. The team officially placed wide receiver Allen Robinson on injured reserve with a foot injury, guaranteeing he'll miss the next four games but likely ending his season.

Robinson suffered a stress fracture in his foot during the Rams' 27-20 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 11. Robinson missed practice in the leadup to the team's Week 12 matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs. Later testing revealed the season-ending injury.

Robinson joined the Rams on a three-year, $46.5 million deal earlier this year, but never quite found his fit in head coach Sean McVay's offense. He was expected to serve as a complement to All-Pro Wide Receiver Cooper Kupp, but like many of the Rams plans this season, it didn't work out. Robinson has nabbed 33 of his 52 receptions for 339 yards and three touchdowns in his ten starts. His inability to connect with quarterback Matthew Stafford is a big reason why the Rams rank 29th in scoring and 31st in yards gained.

Robinson initially entered the league as the 61st overall pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2014. He made his name in this league as the lone bright spot on poor offenses, peaking with 1400 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns with the Jaguars in 2015 and 1250 yards and six touchdowns with the Chicago Bears in 2020.
