Vikings injury report: Brian Robison hurts shoulder in win over Rams

USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota defensive end may have to miss time after suffering an injury on Sunday.

The Minnesota Vikings scored an important victory over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday, and also escaped the game without getting too banged up. The exception, though, was defensive end Brian Robison, who left the game in the first quarter with a shoulder injury and did not return.

Robison suffered a sprained A/C joint in his shoulder and was hustled off the field and into the locker room immediately. He will reportedly be evaluated later in the week, but it's entirely possible that he may have to miss time as Minnesota makes a push for the playoffs in its final two weeks.

Robison was replaced on Sunday by Everson Griffen, who returned a Sam Bradford interception for a touchdown and also had a quarterback pressure. Robison was able to pick up a sack himself before leaving in the first quarter.

On the season, Robison has tallied 7.5 sacks, 36 tackles and two forced fumbles. It's likely that Griffen will start if he is forced to miss time.
