    K. Robinson voluntarily back in rehab

    Vikings | K. Robinson voluntarily back in rehab
    Thu, 6 Jul 2006 16:36:13 -0700

    KSTP-TV reports Minnesota Vikings WR Koren Robinson has checked himself into a drug rehabilitation center. Robinson's agent, Alvin Keels, confirmed to 5 Eyewitness News that Robinson voluntarily entered the rehabilitation program in late June. Keels says Robinson did nothing wrong, but would not share any more details. The Vikings have not released a statement on the situation yet. If Robinson were found in violation of league policy again, he could face up to a year-long suspension.

    I hate to see these guys risk their careers like this.

    Jeff Zulgad, of the Star Tribune, reports Minnesota Vikings WR Koren Robinson's agent, Alvin Keels, confirmed Thursday, July 6, that the receiver has re-entered an alcohol rehab facility. Keels made it clear that Robinson's decision was voluntary and he has not violated the NFL's substance abuse policy. "Is Koren Robinson in rehab or at a rehab facility? Yes," said Keels, responding to a report that first broke on profootballtalk.com. "Was Koren Robinson drinking? No. Was Koren Robinson forced by the NFL or the Vikings to go? No. Most recovering alcoholics seek treatment through the years. He's just being more proactive than in the past." Keels made it clear that Robinson can leave the facility at any time and expressed disappointment that word had leaked out about his client's private decision. A Vikings spokesman said the team would have no comment on the subject. Robinson earlier in the day he denied the story when reached by FOX9. "Everybody has been calling me about this," he said. "That's false. I'm trying to get in contact with my agent. I don't know what's going on."

    All I can say is this:

    IF he is actually going, and IF he is just going as a follow-up voluntarily, this MOM would beam with pride, because he would be stepping up and taking responsibility for himself. It is nice to see an athlete be a man like that. I'd be more than proud of him. Take care, Koren!
