Maryland outside linebacker Matt Robinson sustained a foot injury last week against Michigan and won't play in the Terps' game Saturday against Rutgers, the Baltimore Sun's Matt Zenitz and the Washington Post's Roman Stubbs reported.
Terps OLB Matt Robinson will not play today due to an injury he suffered against Michigan last week. Alex Twine will start in his place— Matt Zenitz (@mzenitz) November 29, 2014
Robinson suffered foot injury last week against Michigan. This is the sixth game he's missed this year. Also has struggled with shoulder.— Roman Stubbs (@romanstubbs) November 29, 2014
Robinson, a senior, will thus miss Maryland's Senior Day game. That's a shame, especially because Robinson has missed so much time with injuries over the last few years. Before last week's game at Michigan, he spoke with great relief that he'd managed to finish the previous game against Michigan State without an injury. This will be the sixth of 12 games this season Robinson has missed.
Alex Twine, another senior, will start in Robinson's place. That's probably a veteran nod, as Yannick Ngakoue would normally be expected to be the primary replacement at outside linebacker for Robinson and Yannik Cudjoe-Virgil.
Maryland and Rutgers will kick at 3:30 p.m. on ESPNU.
