Robinson was not present at practice for the start of fall camp earlier in the day. Rumors ran wild on social media pertaining to why Robinson was absent.
Jovon Robinson dismissed today, won't say if it was specific incident that lead to dismissal "it's between me and him"

Malzahn did not elaborate as to why Robinson ultimately departed. As a result, an already sparse backfield becomes considerably thinner. Auburn will now likely rely upon young running backs Kerryon Johnson and Malik Miller for production.
