Saints RB Khiry Robinson is out for season with fractured tibia

Monday November 2nd, 2015

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton announced Monday that running back Khiry Robinson has a fractured tibia and will be out for the remainder of the season, the team announced Monday.

“His season has come to an end,” Payton told reporters.

Robinson was carted off of the field during the second quarter of the Saints’ 52–49 victory over the New York Giants. The running back was then taken to the hospital during halftime due to what appeared to be a broken leg. He had surgery on his leg Sunday evening.

The Saints signed Robinson has an undrafted free agent in 2013. He has rushed for 180 yards and four touchdowns over eight games this season.

Robinson’s injury leaves the Saints with Mark Ingram, C.J. Spiller and Marcus Murphy as options at the running back position.
