Robinson was limited to special-teams duty during Sunday's loss to Baltimore
It wasn't as if Robinson was flush with production prior to Chris Ivory returning to the the lineup as he had collected just five touches in the first two weeks of the season. Ivory's return is a back-breaker for Robinson. Only Chicago has run the ball less than Jacksonville through Week 3, so it isn't as though there are a boatload of opportunities to be had. With two quality backs and a mobile quarterback, it's fairly safe to say that Robinson will be relegated to being the runt of the litter.
Robinson carried once for seven yards and caught one pass for seven yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Chargers.
Even with Chris Ivory (general medical issue) sidelined for the second straight week, the Jaguars failed to get Robinson involved in the offensive game plan. That said, Jacksonville was forced to all but abandon the rushing game after falling behind 21-0 in the first half, so it wasn't necessarily a strong representation of what the team would like the offense to look like. Ivory's status for Week 3 is up in the air as of Monday night, but whenever he returns -- whether it's Week 3 or Week 4 -- Robinson's role will likely diminish even more.
Robinson logged three carries for seven yards in Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Packers.
With Chris Ivory (undisclosed) inactive Sunday, Robinson was thrust into duty as the backup to T.J. Yeldon, but it was Yeldon who saw the vast majority of the workload. Jacksonville was unable to get anything going on the ground for most of the day, however, tallying just 48 yards on 26 total carries as a team. Once Ivory returns, expect Robinson to move into an even more reduced role.
Robinson departed the Jags' final preseason game after taking a shot to the eye, but the injury was never considered overly serious. Expect the former Michigan quarterback to be available in full capacity Sunday, though his role will likely be minor after the team added Chris Ivory in the offseason to pair with last year's starter, T.J. Yeldon.
Robinson's injury is unfortunate but it doesn't sound all too serious. He's expected to be the team's No. 3 running back for the season, but his absence Thursday will allow Corey Grant and Joe Banyard some extra snaps to earn the spot.
