The absence of Robert Quinn is not necessarily a win for anybody. Even when you look at Dominique Robinson, he could have easily benefited from practicing with Robert Quinn. Seeing how the veteran conducted himself would not hurt.

Still, without Quinn, it is fair to say that one of the big beneficiaries is Robinson. Beyond Quinn, who may come off as an even situation for Robinson considering the benefit of working with him, Robinson also saw two other veterans cede time to him.

Al-Quadin Muhammad did not practice the entire week with an undisclosed injury. On top of that, the team released Jeremiah Attaochu, letting him find a better scheme with a new team.

Attaochu was arguably the only player keeping Robinson from being a lock on the roster. Now, it seems like that is all but a guarantee. Beyond that, Robinson was working with the first team for most of his practices. Quinn and Muhammad would have joined Trevis Gipson as the top three, but with two out, there was just Gipson and Robinson.

The release of Attaochu came after Robinson was getting work with the ones, so there may have been some comfortability in Robinson before deciding to move on. All of this points to good things.
