Vikings deactivate Robinson vs. Jets

MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota Vikings receiver Marcus Robinson
was surprisingly deactivated for Sunday's game against the
New York Jets.

Robinson has twice as many receiving touchdowns (four) as any
other Viking, despite not playing in four games this season, three
due to injury and one as a healthy scratch.

He was listed as probable this week on the injury report with an
ankle injury.

Right tackle Marcus Johnson also was inactive for the fourth
straight week, and coach Brad Childress gave second-round draft
pick Ryan Cook his first NFL start against the Jets. Cook has split
time with veteran Mike Rosenthal at tackle the last three weeks.

For New York, running back Kevan Barlow was inactive for the
third straight week, with Leon Washington again getting the start.
