The Rams activated defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson from the non-football injury list Friday. When Robinson went on the list Aug. 9, it was due to a cardiovascular condition, Jourdan Rodrigue of TheAthletic.com reported at the time.

Robinson, who returned to practice last week, signed a two-year, $17 million deal with the Rams in March after spending the first four seasons of his career with the Lions. His Rams’ debut could come Sunday or the team could wait until after the bye, McVay said.

“He’s going to add big-time depth to the front,” McVay said. “He has versatility across the front, physicality, athleticism. So, he’s a guy that can really play all across the interior of your defensive line. He can play in all personnel groupings, not exclusive to base or some of your sub-rush packages and that was what we liked so much about him. That’s why he was such a big-time player for the Lions. It’s why he was a big-time player coming out of Alabama, and why we’re excited to add him to the mix with the special group that we already have.”
