Shark Bites

Jaguars RB James Robinson has resumed running. An Instagram video shows him running around half speed, but consider it a step forward in his return from a late-December Achilles tear. Previously, HC Doug Pederson had said that a return to the field for training camp is realistic. Time will tell on that. But with Robinson’s role and effectiveness in question, we’re circling Travis Etienne as a Round 4 target.

ESPN's Michael DiRocco's "educated guess" is that Jaguars RB James Robinson will lead the team in carries this season, "but Etienne could have a slight lead in total touches." It seems very likely that Etienne serves as Jacksonville's primary pass-catching back. But exactly how carries will be divided is the big question -- especially since you'll need to spend a 3rd- or 4th-round pick to land Etienne. We'll continue to keep a close eye on Jacksonville's backfield plans.

Jaguars RB James Robinson (Achilles) will not be placed on the PUP list to open training camp, HC Doug Pederson said. That makes Robinson ineligible for the reserve PUP, which means Jacksonville believes he'll be available before Week 5. Robinson is just about 7 months removed from tearing his left Achilles. We're still not excited about his 2022 fantasy outlook, but his surprisingly fast recovery from this injury is at least a slight concern for folks hoping for a Travis Etienne breakout this season.

Jaguars RB James Robinson has a torn Achilles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That not only ends Robinson's 2021 season but also puts his status for the start of 2022 in question. We'll track his rehab this offseason. It looks like Dare Ogunbowale will close out the season as Jacksonville's lead back.

Jaguars RB James Robinson was carted to the locker room after suffering a non-contact left leg injury in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Jets. We'll update his status when we know more. Dare Ogunbowale has stepped in as Jacksonville's lead back.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that it's a torn Achilles' tendon for Robinson. That not only ends his season but potentially challenges his start to 2022. We'll see how he progresses through the offseason.

Jaguars RB James Robinson (heel, knee) is not listed on the final injury report. He didn’t practice on Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday after being limited all last week. It’s unclear if that means Robinson is ready for a bigger role this weekend vs. the Titans. He’s averaged 12.3 carries and 4 targets over the last 4 games.
