Last Saturday, Purdue linebacker Sean Robinson suffered a knee injury against the Illinois Fighting Illini. Yesterday head coach Darrell Hazell gave an update on Robinson and it wasn’t good.
The senior will be out indefinitely with a severe ACL injury. At this point it’s not known whether Robinson will miss the rest of the season or not. Hazell said the decision to play again will be left up to Robinson.
Sean Robinson had recorded 42 tackles so far this season, third best on the team, and a sack. He was brought in as a quarterback under Danny Hope, but moved to linebacker in 2012. In 2012, Robinson started six games and finished with 27 tackles and in 2013 he started nine games and finished with 45 tackles. While not a great linebacker, Robinson’s presence in the middle will be missed.
Purdue takes on No. 8 Michigan State this weekend and plays Minnesota on Oct. 18. Hazell stated the team would re-evaluate Robinson in a couple weeks and will make the determination then if he will step on the field again this season or not.
