1) Introduction: An injury replacement mid season called up from the practice squad, Luther Robinson had a quick chance to make a good impression. Was he able to set a foundation for a Packers career to come?

3) Expectations coming into the season: Get on the practice squad. As an undrafted free agent rookie, Robinson was just another face trying to make a name for himself in the melee that is the NFL preseason. While Mike Pennel and Jayrone Elliott managed to make the team, Robinson didn’t fare too badly himself, first by making it on the practice squad followed being promoted to the active roster for week 5 against the Minnesota Vikings.
4) Player’s highlights/low-lights: There’s not much in terms of highlights or lowlights for a player that only got 66 snaps the entire season. Stretching “lowlight” somewhat, week 5 against the Vikings was his worse game, but that’s basically to be expected with a rookie getting called up from the practice squad as a injury fill-in in his very first professional game so I’ll give him a pass.
5) Player’s contribution to the overall team success: Incomplete. Robinson was an injury replacement playing 36 snaps and 21 snaps right out of the gate but as the rest of the defensive line got healthier, Robinson’s playing time decreased significantly to the point that he was a regular game day inactive at the end of the season.
6) Player’s contributions in the playoffs: Incomplete. Robinson did not play a single snap during the playoffs.
7) Intangibles: Essentially nothing is known about Robinson and so everything is intangible when it comes to him.
