Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Jaguars fear WR Allen Robinson tore his ACL during Sunday’s win over the Texans.
If an MRI confirms that Robinson does, in fact, have a torn ACL, it would end his season and lead to him being placed on injured reserve.
Hopefully, this isn’t the case, as Robinson is in the final year of his contract and would be an unrestricted free agent next year.
The Jacksonville Jaguars announced that WR Allen Robinson is out for the game with a left knee injury.
Robinson left with a non-contact injury and was taken to locker room for further evaluation.
“They have [talked], but at the end of the day, that’s my agent’s job and I’ll let him do his thing and I’ll do my thing on the field,” Robinson said previously, per Ryan O’Halloran.
“I’m not 100 percent sure of where that process is at and that’s not my No. 1 focus,” Robinson said. “My No. 1 focus is to go to camp ready go for my teammates, be a great teammate and help us win games.”
Robinson has consistently been one of the Jaguars’ best receivers and should be in line for a sizable raise in the near future.
Robinson, 23, is a former second-round pick by the Jaguars in the 2014 NFL Draft. He is entering the final year of a four-year, $3.510 million rookie contract and is set to make a base salary of $898,755 this season.
In 2016, Robinson appeared in all 16 games for the Jaguars and recorded 73 receptions for 883 receiving yards and six touchdowns. Pro Football Focus rates him as the No. 55 overall receiver out of 115 qualifying players.
