Saints RB Khiry Robinson has been diagnosed with a broken right tibia, and is done for the season.
He underwent surgery on Sunday evening, and will be placed on injured reserve. Robinson was averaging over nine touches per game, but the Saints can withstand his loss as long as Mark Ingram and C.J. Spiller stay healthy. That's always been easier said than done, of course. Two months shy of his 26th birthday, Robinson is headed for restricted free agency. Big and fairly versatile, we'd expect the Saints to tender an offer. Nov 2 - 2:17 PM

Khiry Robinson was carted off the field with a right leg injury in New Orleans' Week 8 game against the Giants.

Robinson almost certainly broke his leg. He was taken to the hospital at halftime. The change-up back got buried at the bottom of a pile. He was fitted for an air-cast on the field before being carted to the locker room. Robinson had four carries for four yards before going down, adding two receptions for 13 yards. His loss means Mark Ingram won't be getting as many breathers.
Nov 1 - 2:19 PM

Khiry Robinson rushed 14 times for 28 yards and two touchdowns in New Orleans' Week 7 win over the Colts.

He added a three-yard reception. For reasons unknown, Robinson stole a first quarter series from Mark Ingram, but couldn't do anything with it. Ingram received as many carries as Robinson, but registered 115 more yards. Robinson's vultured scores were some of the more absurd in recent memory. Robinson typically receives 5-7 weekly touches. He isn't on the FLEX radar.
Oct 25 - 6:32 PM

Khiry Robinson rushed seven times for 23 yards in New Orleans' Week 6 win over the Falcons, adding two receptions for an additional 24 yards.

Robinson out-snapped, out-touched and out-produced C.J. Spiller behind Mark Ingram, but still did nothing to warrant a longer look in fantasy leagues. He can be safely left on the waiver wire.
Oct 16 - 12:27 AM

Khiry Robinson rushed five times for 30 yards and caught 2-of-2 targets for two yards Week 5 against the Eagles.

Robinson is a good bet to see 6-10 touches weekly, but that workload is not enough to make him a viable fantasy option. He is nothing more than a handcuff for Mark Ingram.
Oct 11 - 6:25 PM

Khiry Robinson had six carries for 16 yards and a touchdown and caught 2-of-4 passes for five yards in Sunday night's Week 4 win over the Cowboys.

Robinson played limited snaps, but vultured a one-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. With the Saints expected to get C.J. Spiller more involved, he should see his role reduced. Robinson isn't more than an early-down backup to Mark Ingram.
Oct 5 - 1:35 AM

Khiry Robinson rushed seven times for 12 yards and a touchdown and caught 2-of-2 targets for eight yards Week 3 against the Panthers.

Robinson and the entire running game struggled against the Panthers, but he managed to save his day with a two-yard score in the fourth quarter. Robinson continues to see 7-10 touches each week as Mark Ingram's backup, but he is not a usable fantasy asset.
Sep 27 - 6:27 PM

Khiry Robinson had five carries for 48 yards in Week 2 against the Bucs.

He added one catch for nine yards. Robinson lined up as a receiver in the first half, but didn’t get his first carry until the third quarter. With C.J. Spiller limited, he was Mark Ingram's change-of-pace for the second straight week. Robinson's role will be reduced when Spiller gets fully healthy.
Sep 20 - 6:22 PM

Saints RB Khiry Robinson was fined by the team for allegedly striking an intern in the head during training camp.

Robinson allegedly got into a dispute with the intern over whether the running back owed the intern money for driving him to a store to get his cell phone fixed during training camp. Robinson was not arrested or charged in the incident, but he was interviewed twice by the NFL regarding the altercation. The first of those interviews occurred without an NFLPA representative present, which is not supposed to happen. The NFLPA is investigating the matter.
Sep 14 - 8:50 AM

Khiry Robinson rushed eight times for 19 yards and caught five passes for 51 yards in the Saints' Week 1 loss to Arizona.

Robinson filled the role that should eventually be occupied by C.J. Spiller (knee), who may return in Week 2 or 3. Robinson shared time near-evenly with Mark Ingram as the Saints' backs rotated in and out of the game. Robinson is worth hanging onto as a bench stash in most 12- and 14-team leagues, but his role won't be as potent once Spiller reenters the backfield.
Sep 13 - 7:45 PM

Khiry Robinson is practicing in full this week.

Robinson missed some practice time last week with an undisclosed ailment. He will be all systems go for Week 1 against the Cardinals, and could handle an expanded role behind Mark Ingram with C.J. Spiller (knee) not playing.
Sep 9 - 8:07 PM

Khiry Robinson missed practice this week with an undisclosed injury.

The Saints don’t expect the injury to affect his Week 1 status. Robinson isn’t more than an early-down backup to Mark Ingram, though there are rumblings C.J. Spiller (knee scope) might not be ready for the opener. Robinson should go undrafted in 12-team leagues.
Aug 29 - 3:12 PM

Khiry Robinson projects as the "odd man out" in New Orleans' backfield again this year.

Mark Ingram was re-signed to a $16M deal and C.J. Spiller was brought in to be the change-of-pace option. Expect these two to monopolize touches, leaving the #FreeKhiry movement in need of an injury. The talented Robinson is merely a big-back handcuff -- albeit one that will be atop the Waiver Wire adds if anything happens to Ingram.
Jul 6 - 10:03 AM

CBS' Jason La Canfora speculates the Saints would be willing to trade Khiry Robinson.

La Canfora is just connecting dots here, not reporting. The talented Robinson is buried in New Orleans behind Mark Ingram and C.J. Spiller. Perhaps the Cowboys, in need of running back help, would be willing to part with a guy like TE Gavin Escobar to help the Saints compensate for the loss of Jimmy Graham.

Khiry Robinson is expected to only get "occasional touches" as a "change-of-pace" back.

About a month ago, Robinson was penciled in atop the Saints depth chart at running back. Then Mark Ingram was re-signed to a $16M contract and C.J. Spiller was brought in on an $18M deal. The Saints have used committee approaches at the position before, but Robinson will be firmly behind Ingram as a big-back handcuff only. Last year, Sean Payton saddled up Ingram for 17.3 carries per game.
