Vikings rookie Josh Robinson returned to practice Wednesday afternoon in a limited role. Robinson, who pulled his hamstring in the very first training camp practice last week, took part Wednesday in a few individual drills. But he didn’t do anything with much contact involved.
“I’m just trying to slowly get back into it,” the cornerback said. “Right now, it feels good. Not too bad. Can’t complain. I’m not sure when I’ll be full-go yet. Hopefully soon. The most frustrating thing has been having to watch just about everything. I try to stay positive and know all things happen for a reason.”
Robinson hurt his hamstring while covering fellow rookie Jarius Wright on Friday. He’s missed three full practiced so far but has reminded himself that the regular season is still a long way off, allowing perspective to overpower his eagerness to get back into the fray.
“I definitely see the big picture,” he said. “I have to remind myself to not push things too hard and then something might happen to put me out for a month or so. I’m definitely thinking about that and making sure I’m doing the right things to recover as soon as possible.”
