According to Milwaukee newspapers, suspended Packers wide receiver Koren Robinson is awaiting word from the NFL to see if he will be reinstated into the league.
During a Wednesday news conference, Brett Favre confirmed that he indeed spoke to Robinson by phone on Tuesday.
“I’m not the commissioner but I think there needs to be some positive(s),” Favre is quoted as saying. “There haven’t been a whole lot of positives as far as suspensions and things of that nature and it would be nice. I’m a little bit biased obviously, but I think he’s done everything he’s been asked to do. And it’s time to set a good example that you can resurrect not only your career but your life.”
Favre said that Robinson is looking forward to meeting with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell this week, but such a meeting might not even be necessary.
Even if Robinson is reinstated it won’t be for this Sunday’s game against Washington, but it is realistic to expect Robinson to be in uniform against the Denver Broncos two weeks from this Sunday.
