Lions LT Greg Robinson exited Week 6 against the Saints with an ankle injury.

He was briefly benched in the first half, but the Lions had to bring Robinson back in because of injuries. He left himself in the fourth quarter. Absurdly banged up on the offensive line, the Lions will welcome the coming bye week.

Lions coach Jim Caldwell said LT Greg Robinson was "solid" in the preseason opener.

"In terms of first outing within the system, you know, against another team, I thought he did some good things," Caldwell said. "But he’s still got a ways to go." With Taylor Decker (shoulder) out until at least October, the Lions hope Robinson, who they acquired via trade from the Rams, can hold down the left tackle spot. Considering how his career has started, "solid" is a great showing from Robinson.

Lions activated LT Greg Robinson from the active/NFI list.

He only sat out a day of camp. The Lions are hoping Robinson can nail down their starting left tackle job in the absence of Taylor Decker (shoulder).

Lions placed OT Greg Robinson on the active/NFI list.

It's only notable with Taylor Decker (shoulder) sidelined.

According to ESPN Lions reporter Michael Rothstein, newly acquired OT Greg Robinson is "locked in" as the starting left tackle heading into training camp.

Acquired from the Rams last month, Robinson was arguably the worst tackle in the league the past couple seasons. New Rams coach Sean McVay quickly gave up on him, but the Lions don't have many other options to replace Taylor Decker (shoulder surgery), other than Cyrus Kouandjio, but he's also recovering from hip surgery. A once-strong Lions offensive line took a major step back after Decker's injury.

Lions coach Jim Caldwell said newly-acquired OT Greg Robinson will compete at left tackle.

As will Cyrus Kouandjio, who was signed on Thursday. The Lions have a clear need at left tackle with Taylor Decker (shoulder surgery) out for at least the early part of the season, but Robinson has shown nothing to suggest he is the answer. Kouandjio is a better bet, but he is recovering from hip surgery. Decker's injury has the potential to torpedo what otherwise looks like a strong offense.

Lions acquired OT Greg Robinson from the Rams in exchange for a 2018 sixth-round pick.

Working behind Jamon Brown at right tackle during minicamp, it was clear Robinson, the No. 2 overall pick in 2014, was done with the Rams. It makes sense for the Lions to see what Robinson can do with Taylor Decker likely to miss the start of the season with a shoulder injury, but he has shown nothing to this point to suggest he can be even a competent fill-in. Robinson is not guaranteed to make the final roster.

Greg Robinson appears to have lost his job permanently to Jamon Brown as the Rams' right tackle.

Brown is taking all of the first-team right tackle reps at minicamp, and Robinson "has barely even taken second-team reps." Robinson's $3.3 million base salary is fully guaranteed. Otherwise, Robinson would likely be released.

Greg Robinson was working as the second-team right tackle during Tuesday's OTA practice.

Moved to the right side after busting hard at left tackle, the former No. 2 overall pick might be losing that job to Jamon Brown, who took most of the first-team reps on Tuesday. "I made a few mistakes that put me down," Robinson said. "But I just look at it as a little fire up under me. I try my best to come out every day and redeem myself." Coach Sean McVay noted Robinson "has shown some good signs" and there is an "adjustment period" when moving from the left to the right. Even if this demotion is not permanent, Robinson is clearly on thin ice.

The Rams have officially declined RT Greg Robinson's fifth-year team option.

The move was first reported a month ago. The No. 2 overall pick of the 2014 draft, Robinson is moving to right tackle after flopping spectacularly on the left side.
Tue, May 2, 2017 03:54:00 PM

The Los Angeles Times' Gary Klein reports the Rams will decline 2014 first-rounder Greg Robinson's fifth-year team option for 2018.

Duh. The No. 2 overall pick in the 2014 draft, Robinson has been a colossal bust. He's arguably been the worst left tackle in the sport since entering the league and is now being flipped to right tackle by the Sean McVay coaching staff. We doubt he proves much better there. The Rams haven't been able to find a capable left tackle since Hall of Famer Orlando Pace moved on, and they smartly plugged the hole with veteran Andrew Whitworth as a priority free agent.

Rams OL Greg Robinson is beginning the offseason at right tackle.

Robinson was expected to man either right tackle or right guard after the Rams signed Andrew Whitworth. He gets right tackle as 2016 RT Rob Havenstein switches to right guard. It's quite possible Robinson flops at his new position, necessitating a Plan B for new coach Sean McVay.
Tue, Apr 4, 2017 02:00:00 PM

The Rams will move LT Greg Robinson to right guard or right tackle in 2017.

With the addition of new LT Andrew Whitworth, the Rams are ending the Robinson experiment at left tackle. It's been in the works for about three years now, as Robinson has been beaten like a drum at the position ever since being drafted No. 2 overall in 2014. He looked okay at left guard early as a rookie, so maybe moving back inside where he has help on both sides of him can kickstart his career. The Rams currently have Rodger Saffold manning left guard.

Rams GM Les Snead said the team is discussing moving former No. 2 overall pick Greg Robinson to right tackle or guard.

Robinson has been a colossal bust at left tackle, but he was not terrible at left guard as a rookie. Perhaps moving him back inside can salvage his career. The Rams need to rework almost the entire offensive line this offseason.
