Breaking News: Robinson Gets 1-Year Suspension

According to reports just starting to circulate, WR Koren Robinson has received a one-year suspension from the NFL for violation of the league's substance abuse policy, pending appeal. Given that the appeal may buy him a few weeks, it still appears likely Robinson will be gone for a good part of this season and perhaps part of next as well.

This comes at a time when he is just starting to be a trusted part of the Pack's receiving corps. It also comes at a time when the Packers will likely still be without WR Robert Ferguson due to his foot injury. Can anyone say "Ruvell Martin"?

Yup...this season is starting to smell a lot like last year.
