On how he turned to football: I had decided on playing basketball and left football along the way. Then my senior year my quarterback asked me to play. I told him if he played basketball I would play football. So I went out there and played and had a great year at wide receiver. I was fast, man.
The Redskins are now (0-6) in their last six primetime games and (0-4) in that span at FedExField. Nothing goes right under the lights for Washington, since they clinched the division title on a magical Sunday night in late December of 2012.
The absence of Robinson leaves just three healthy safeties on the roster. The starters are Ryan Clark and Brandon Meriweather. That's fine as far as it goes.

If he has to do much more than play on special teams, the Redskins are in trouble.
