Minnesota Vikings Training Camp: Third-Round Pick Josh Robinson Leaves Practice With Likely Hamstring Injury

A mere two days after signing his professional contract to play for the Vikings, rookie cornerback Josh Robinson pulled up lame in Friday's inaugural training camp practice and was shut down for the day according to 1500ESPN.com's Tom Pelissero.

Minnesota's third-round selection with the No. 66 overall pick in April's NFL Draft, Robinson reportedly injured his hamstring in a one-on-one drill with fellow rookie Jarius Wright, a wide receiver from Arkansas. After briefly trying to get back into drills with his teammates, the young cornerback was helped to the locker room by a trainer.

A lightning-fast defensive back who gained valuable experience as a three-year starter at Central Florida, the 5-foot-10 Robinson is expected to play a huge role in the Vikings' secondary this season. Seeing him go down on the very first day of training camp, however, is not a good sign for the Vikings' organization.

The unquestioned star of the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine for his top-ranked 40-yard dash time, Robinson shot up value boards almost entirely due to his athleticism alone in the weeks leading up to the draft. Though his durability has never truly been called into question, the Vikings can't be too thrilled about having to worry about the health of their brand new cornerback before he can even suit up for a game.
