Saints CB Robinson out for season with knee injury

METAIRIE (AP) — Saints coach Sean Payton says cornerback Patrick Robinson will miss the rest of the season with a right knee


Robinson, a 2010 first-round draft choice, injured his patella tendon during the third quarter of New Orleans' 16-14 victory

at Tampa Bay last Sunday.

Payton says the Saints have replaced Robinson on the roster with veteran cornerback Chris Carr, who'd been with New Orleans

during training camp and was among the club's final cuts.

Robinson was a starter last season, but this

season was moved to a backup role, in part because of the arrival of

free agent

Keenan Lewis. Robinson also was rehabilitating from an earlier

injury when the preseason began, which prevented him from practicing

during the first week of training camp.

The Saints play Arizona on Sunday.
