Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson injured his left anterior cruciate ligament on the third play from scrimmage against the Houston Texans and did not return on Sunday at NRG Stadium. He was able to get back up and walk slowly to the locker room. They did the examination and immediately ruled Robinson out. Later, Pro Football Talk and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport both reported that the Jaguars fear that Robinson tore his ACL.
Now comes this report from ESPN's Adam Schefter indicating that Robinson did indeed suffered what's being considered a "significant" knee injury.
Confirmed to have ACL injury
The Jaguars did not specify the severity of the injury or how much time he would miss.
After a 1,400-yard, 14-touchdown season in 2015, Robinson cooled down a year ago at Jacksonville quarterback Blake Bortles struggled. We now know it's because he suffered a serious knee injury and is out for the season with a ton ACL. As you can see here, Robinson caught the pass and ran toward the sideline.More news: Packers: 3 keys to Green Bay's season opener against Seattle Seahawks
