2. Is Tavius Robinson on the Baltimore Ravens roster bubble?

The Baltimore Ravens rookie fourth-round pick has not shown enough for the team to be satisfied. He struggled in the first preseason game, and it was noted by the coaching staff. The staff started him in preseason week one, but in week two, it was Jeremiah Moon getting the nod over Robinson.

Moon has been better than Robinson in the preseason, as has Malik Hamm. What helps Moon and Hamm as well, as they are backing up Tyus Bowser, while Robinson is the third guy behind David Ojabo and Odafe Oweh as the RUSH player.

The Bowser role involves dropping into coverage and playing on your feet more, which Robinson does not do well. So, if Bowser misses time, the Ravens will throw Jadeveon Clowney into the spot, but his backup would be one of Hamm or Moon. So, Clowney, one of them, Oweh, and Ojabo may be the four who are active on game days.

Robinson has not played special teams much or well to this point, so it is hard to see the Ravens activating him at this point. Do they try to sneak him on to the practice squad? Does a minor injury in the preseason finale give the Ravens a chance to throw him on the IR? What is the plan for the struggling rookie?
