    ouch, that really hurts us. Injuries are the only thing keeping this kid from being a superstar.

        That was not what we wanted to hear. He was one of the bright spots that we had going for us. The Packers games sure did turn out to be a costly one in regards to injuries.

          Amen C-mob. He just can't seem to lick this injury bug. He was doing it up big time until the injury.

          I wish him the best and a speedy recovery. There's always next year for him!

            He played great thus far. I hope he has a full recovery. This really hurts us now, so Avery better step up.

                well, i hope him the best and cant wait till next year when he lights it up for us.

                This season is getting grimmer and grimmer.....let's hope the rams can turn it around somewhat at least and put together a solid season from here on out, regardless of who is playing at what position.

                      Last year he missed 15 games with a hamstring injury and now he's gonna miss 13 games with a broken fibula. Look, I've been very impressed with Robinson also, but maybe this is why Atlanta let us have him for so cheap a price.

                      At any rate, let's hope that he heals up completely and gets ready to hit it next year.

                      WHAT SAY YE?

                        A hamstring injury is different but this was a freak injury- a lineman rolling on your ankle could happen to anyone. He showed he has #1 material so we just got to hope he bounces back from it.

                            Oh my, now, we hardly can tell that we got 'receiving corp' at all. Just look at that black hole on the depth chart. I am very sorry because of him and ready to wait for LR till next season.

                              Well, that's one less playmaker on an offense desperate for playmakers.

                                How much do we miss Robinson?
                                by 39thebeast
                                Stats via Mike Sandos Blog. Even though Robinson was hurt week 3 he still has the same amount of third down targets as Avery and Burton with 7. Steven Jackson leads the team in third down targets with 9. Throwing to Robinson on third down Bulgers rating is 110.7 Burton and Avery with the exact same amount of targets are hovering around 67. Among guys with a minimum of 10 targets Bulgers passer rating when throwing to Robinson is 91.2, he only has a higher rating throwing to Burton at 100.9.

                                You can interpret this allot of ways. Bulger needs a true number 1 to be good, Robinson is really good, our other receivers suck, and so on.

                                To me there is a combination in the lack of faith in Bulger and to a much larger extent the WRs. We only threw the deep post or deep out to Robinson and now we don't do that nearly as much.

                                By Nick Wagoner
                                Senior Writer

                                Of the many moves the Rams made during the past offseason, from hiring a new head coach to bringing in big dollar free agents and picking near the top of the NFL Draft, there was one that perhaps flew under the radar without proper acclaim.

                                It certainly didn’t garner any headlines on ESPN, barely qualifying for bottom line status but on April 6, the Rams swapped their fifth and sixth round picks to Atlanta for the Falcons’ fifth and sixth round picks and receiver Laurent Robinson.

                                At the time, it seemed like a low-risk, high reward move. And though there is a lot of football left to be played before anyone can stamp the high reward portion of that deal, Robinson is certainly off to a promising start.

                                “I feel good,” Robinson said. “I’m just working hard every day in practice, going out there trying to be the best I can be everyday, listening to the coach…I mean, and just being coachable and going out there and executing. The offense is great, I’m very confident and comfortable in it, and hopefully I can just continue on in the regular season.”

                                Soon after top receiver Donnie Avery was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his foot, the onus fell on Robinson as one of the young receivers behind Avery to step up and fill the void in this preseason.

                                Robinson had already earned his way into the starting lineup and was getting the work opposite Avery as a starter in practice when Avery suffered the injury.

                                But with Avery out, Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo made it clear he was looking for any of his young receivers to stand up and make a statement.

                                With Avery projected toward a return sometime around the season opener at Seattle, Robinson appears to be the one looming the largest.

                                “It’s a great opportunity here for me,” Robinson said. “Hopefully I can just step right in, make some plays, and help the team win anyway I can whether that’s by running, blocking, or catching the ball.”

                                In Friday night’s loss to the Falcons at the Edward Jones Dome, Robinson made his presence felt with five catches for 65 yards in about two quarters of play.

                                Along the way, Robinson hauled in a difficult 25-yard catch and showed excellent hands on some short and intermediate slant routes. Further, Robinson showed the ability to pick up yards after the catch, an imperative trait for any receiver in the West Coast Offense.

                                In two preseason games encompassing about three quarters of play, Robinson has been targeted 10 times and come up with seven catches...

                                I thought Robinson was number 11, when the rams game started I saw number 11 on the field and I was like NO WAY Robinson's playing? Then I realized it was Gibson... So who gets the number 11? Lol...
