Allen Park – One day after the Detroit Lions placed offensive tackle Greg Robinson and defensive end Cornelius Washington on the non-football injury list, the team announced both players have been activated, prior to the team’s first training camp practice Sunday afternoon.
Despite having not even taken a single practice snap with the Lions since being acquired in a June trade from the Los Angeles Rams, Robinson is the early favorite to fill in for injured starting left tackle Taylor Decker.
Robinson, the No. 2 overall selection in the 2014 draft, will have to beat out Cyrus Kouandjio, Cornelius Lucas and Corey Robinson for the role.
Kouandjio, who was signed the Lions the same day the team acquired Robinson, was removed off the non-football injury list on Saturday. He’s been recovering from offseason hip surgery. Robinson remains on the physically unable to perform list while he recovers from a foot injury from last year.
