HOUSTON The last time Dunta Robinson played in Oakland the cornerback left the field on a cart with devastating knee and hamstring injuries.

On Sunday, he'll return healthy and helping to lead a Houston Texans team that has won a franchise-record four games in a row.

Robinson said he hasn't thought a lot about his return, but that he'll probably reflect on last year's injury Sunday.

"It won't be something that sticks with me for long," he said. "I'll walk out, I'll think about it and then it's time to play football ... I still have never seen the film on the injury. It's just not something that I want to revisit."

But when talking about the injury Wednesday, Robinson shared with reporters that he had a sort of premonition before the Nov. 4, 2007 game in Oakland.

"I woke up that morning and I told myself well, it just felt different," he said. "I said: 'OK, something is different. Either I'm going to have a spectacular game or something really bad is going to happen.' And of course, option No. 2 is what occurred."

The injury, which ripped his hamstring off the bone and tore his anterior cruciate ligament, came in a collision with a teammate. His leg got trapped under the pile and he couldn't free himself from the crush of players.

He missed 12 games recovering and returned in a limited role in mid-October before getting back in the starting lineup four games ago. The fifth-year player has 31 tackles and two interceptions this season.
