However, coach Gus Bradley was vague about Robinson remaining the feature back, hinting the backfield situation could change once
“Yeah, I think so," Bradley said when asked about Robinson being the feature running back, per The Florida Times-Union. "We’ll look at the film. He did a good job and we hope to get Toby back."
