Los Angeles Rams Make Official Decision On Wide Receiver Allen Robinson

The Rams placed wide receiver Allen Robinson on injured reserve on Tuesday.

Robinson injured his foot in Week 11 against the Saints, and a CT scan Friday revealed a stress fracture on the navicular bone. He will undergo surgery and miss the rest of the season.

Robinson had 33 catches on 52 targets for 339 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games for the Rams.

“He’s a pros pro," McVay said. "He's been so impressive just the way that he's handled things on a day-to-day basis. This is something that he's dealt with before in his other foot and so he had a history of understanding the specifics of a navicular stress fracture and what that entails in terms of the surgery and the recovery."

Robinson was questionable to play last week. He traveled with the team to Kansas City to play the Chiefs on Sunday, but was officially ruled out the Friday before kickoff.

"I think that it was more along the lines of, you find out 'Why am I having this soreness in my foot?'" McVay said. "We injected it with the hopeful optimism that it would make the pain subside and when that didn't occur, we ended up getting the CT scan on Friday and that's when we found out late Friday afternoon what was going on and you want to get the surgery so that he can get himself healthy and ready to go and he's been through this before."

Through the 10 games, Robinson played at least 80 percent of offensive snaps. Since Week 2, he was targeted at least five times in each one.
