Giants’ Aaron Robinson has partially torn ACL, MCL


New York Giants cornerback Aaron Robinson returned in Week 4 after missing several games due to an emergency appendectomy. However, he managed to play just 12 defensive snaps before he again found himself on the sideline.


The 2021 third-round pick had suffered a knee injury against the Chicago Bears and eventually landed on injured reserve.


The severity of Robinson’s injury was initially unclear, but head coach Brian Daboll revealed it was severe enough that his season was likely over.

“Doubtful,” Daboll said when asked if Robinson would make it back this year

More than a month later, we now know of The Athletic reports that Robinson suffered both a partially torn ACL and a partially torn MCL. He underwent surgery in November and won’t be cleared for football activities until next August at the earliest.


The knee injury that Giants CB Aaron Robinson suffered in Week 4 was a partially torn ACL and a torn MCL, per source. Robinson had surgery four weeks ago and is looking at a recovery timeline of approximately nine months. Injuries have been a hurdle for the 2021 third-round pick.

That puts Robinson on track to return for the 2023 regular season but he is very much behind the eightball. He missed eight games during his rookie season due to various injuries and will have appeared in just two games this season.


In the 11 career games Robinson has played, he’s recorded 32 tackles (21 solo), one QB hit, and four passes defensed.
