Report: Saints RB Khiry Robinson sustained open fracture vs. Giants

Wednesday November 4th, 2015

New Orleans Saints running back Khiry Robinson’s tibia fracture was reportedly an open fracture, meaning Robinson’s bone broke through his skin as a result of the injury, reports Nick Underhill of the New Orleans Advocate.

Robinson sustained the injury during the second quarter of the Saints’ 52–49 victory over the New York Giants. He was carted off of the field and then taken to the hospital during halftime. The running back underwent surgery on his leg Sunday evening.

On Monday, Saints head coach Sean Payton announced Robinson would be out for the remainder of the season.

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

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.
