Robles has been ruled out for the club’s showdown with Atlanta United Sunday night at Mercedes-Benz Stadium with a knee injury, the club announced Saturday morning, ending a remarkable ironman streak that spanned 183 regular season games and 16,470 minutes.
Robles broke Kevin Hartmann’s all-time MLS record of 112 complete games against Colorado on April 16, 2016 and set a new league record for consecutive starts with No. 119 in the 7-0 win over NYCFC on May 21, 2016.
Ryan Meara, who has been the Red Bulls No. 2 goalkeeper since Robles arrived from Karlsruher SC in Germany, will get his first regular season start for the Red Bulls since July 8, 2012.
Meara, who has been the Red Bulls regular goalkeeper in U.S. Open Cup matches, last started an MLS game on April 24, 2015 when on a season-long loan with NYCFC.
Robles is listed as week-to-week.
The last starter in the Red Bulls net in an MLS regular season match before Luis Robles was Bill Gaudette in a 1-1 draw with the New England Revolution on Sept. 22, 2012.
