New Orleans Saints cornerback Patrick Robinson has been placed on injured reserve after suffering a broken ankle in Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons. 

The loss comes at a very inopportune time as the Saints face the New York Giants and their loaded wide receiver corps in Week 4.

Sterling Shepard is coming off his biggest game of the season, a six-catch performance on seven targets for 80 yards and a touchdown. Now he'll get this sparking matchup on Sunday. Not to mention, Shepard should see plenty of action over the middle while tight end Evan Engram recovers from an MCL injury

According to the FanDuel Sportsbook, the Saints are 3.5-point favorites against the Giants, so we'll have to see if this line moves with the Robinson news.

As for the Saints defense, they haven't been good all season long and this is another big blow for them
