Description: Atlanta cornerback Dunta Robinson injured his head in the first quarter of Sunday's game against Tampa Bay and will not return.

Description: D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports Robinson (concussion) has been medically cleared and will resume starting in Week 9.

Description: The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports Robinson (concussion) will appeal his $50,000 for his hit on Eagles' WR DeSean Jackson in Week 6.
Insight: Robinson did not appear to violate the NFL's rules on vicious hitting, so it would not be surprising to see the fine reduced or rescinded. Robinson himself was injured on the play, and will not play in Week 7. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: Falcons DB Dunta Robinson is expected to appeal his $50,000 fine for his hit on Eagles WR DeSean Jackson in Week Six. SOURCE: ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION
Insight: After viewing the play several times, we think Robinson should have a strong case. He led with his shoulder, not his helmet, and Jackson shouldn't have been considered "defenseless" because he had the ball in his hands at the point of contact. Robinson also suffered a concussion and is expected to miss Week Seven.

Description: The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports Robinson (concussion) is unlikely to be cleared in time to play Week 7 against Cincinnati.

Description: The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports the Falcons are considering using Robinson to shadow the opponent's No. 1 wide receiver this season.
Insight: Robinson is clearly the Falcons' top cover corner, so this isn't a huge surprise even thought it's an approach rarely seen in today's NFL. He should get enough opportunities to have decent value in IDP leagues. (SportsBuff.com)
