NFL Notes: Hawks look at FB Robinson

NFL: The Seattle Seahawks will bring former Pro Bowl fullback Michael Robinson in for a physical today after Derrick Coleman suffered a hamstring injury against Arizona.

The team confirmed the talks with Robinson on Sunday. Coleman had been serving as the Seahawks fullback for most of the season, but left the game in the first half last Thursday against the Cardinals with a hamstring injury. After the game coach Pete Carroll had no immediate word on the severity of Coleman’s injury.

Robinson was Seattle’s starting fullback from 2010-12, but was cut at the end of training camp. He was set to make $2.5 million in base salary if he was on Seattle’s roster to start the regular season.

Bears’ Hester ties Sanders’ record

NFL: Devin Hester of the Chicago Bears has tied Hall of Famer Deion Sanders’ NFL record with his 19th return for a touchdown.

Hester brought back a punt 81 yards for a score in the second quarter against the Washington Redskins on Sunday. It is Hester’s 13th punt return for a TD, extending his own record in that category.

He also has returned five kickoffs and one missed field goal for touchdowns.

Hester had not scored on a return since Nov. 13, 2011.

The Redskins have allowed a punt return for a touchdown in two consecutive games, and against Oakland in Week 4 surrendered a TD on the return of a blocked punt.
