Date:

Titans signed OG Duke Robinson, WR Darius Reynaud, DE Keyunta Dawson, LS Jake Ingram, and S Al Afalava to reserve/future contracts.

Robinson has the highest profile of the group as a former All-American guard at Oklahoma, where he blocked for Sam Bradford. Reynaud is a return prospect only. Dawson and Afalava are former Colts. Ingram is a long snapper.

Panthers waived/injured OG Duke Robinson.

Robinson had been dealing with the after-effects of a concussion. Perhaps it's more serious than the team first believed. The Panthers have been high on Robinson's potential as a mauler in the ground attack, but he just hasn't progressed. He was facing a four-game suspension to start the season.

NFL suspended Panthers OG Duke Robinson four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Robinson is out for the year after tearing his MCL in training camp, but can serve the suspension on injured reserve. A disappointment to this point in his career, Robinson will be on the bubble for a new coaching staff in 2011.

Panthers placed OG Duke Robinson (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

GM Marty Hurney revealed that Robinson tore his MCL. The Panthers wanted him to win the right guard job, but he never came close to showing adequacy as a pass blocker.

Panthers' beat writer Darin Gant suggests that Duke Robinson won't see the field much unless "someone develops a platoon-guard system in which he only has to run-block."

It was only less than a month ago that the Panthers came out and said they wanted Robinson to win the starting right guard job. The second year player has been a huge disappointment.

The Panthers reportedly "want" second-year player Duke Robinson to win the starting right guard job.

Robinson spent his rookie season as a game-day inactive while Mackenzy Bernadeau and Geoff Schwartz excelled as injury fill-ins late in the year. The Panthers love Robinson's size, though, and believe he has road-grating potential in the running game.

Panthers rookie OG Duke Robinson was carted off the practice field Tuesday with heart-related problems.

His college weight issues might've had something to do with it. Carolina's offensive line is nearly as thin as its defensive line, so losing Robinson would sting. He was already perhaps the top backup at both guard spots.

Panthers agreed to terms with fifth-round OG Duke Robinson on a four-year contract, including a $171,590 signing bonus.

Robinson teamed with Vikings rookie Phil Loadholt to give Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops quite possibly the most dominant left side in college football last season. He'll develop his skills in the Panthers' power-blocking system while sitting behind Keydrick Vincent and Travelle Wharton.

Panthers selected Oklahoma OG Duke Robinson with the No. 163 overall pick in the NFL Draft.

Robinson is listed at 6'5/334, but was rumored to balloon much bigger in college. He also struggled with speedy edge rushers when asked to play tackle at OU, but will be protected as a guard in the pros. Robinson joins a good environment to develop his skills in Carolina's power-blocking system.

ESPN's Todd McShay reports that no offensive guards are likely to be drafted in the top-50 picks Saturday.

Duke Robinson (Oklahoma), Andy Levitre (Oregon State), and Jamon Meredith (South Carolina) are the top guard prospects, although all saw action at tackle in college. Kraig Urbik and Herman Johnson are other first-day options.

Oklahoma OG Duke Robinson revealed that he will not participate in the bench press drill at the Combine because of an arm injury.

The same injury kept Robinson out of the Senior Bowl. He'll lift at the Sooners' Pro Day. Robinson is projected to be drafted in the second round.

Oklahoma OG Duke Robinson did not participate in this week's Senior Bowl due to a shoulder injury.

The injury isn't known to be serious. He played in the BCS Championship against Florida. Robinson is the top-rated pure guard in this year's draft.
