ATLANTA -- I just got into the Georgia Dome, and I’m looking for signs of cornerback Dunta Robinson.
I don’t see any signs of him among the handful of players already warming up on the field. Robinson suffered a concussion last week and is listed as questionable for today’s game with the Bengals. There’s a very remote chance the Falcons might test Robinson this morning and clear him to play.
But I’d be very surprised if that happens. Robinson’s too valuable to risk losing for the long term. With a bye next week, I’m pretty sure the Falcons will do the smart thing and sit Robinson.
That means Christopher Owens, Brent Grimes and Brian Williams will serve as Atlanta’s top three cornerbacks. I'll let you know Robinson's status for certain in about an hour when we get the official list of inactives.
