Denard Robinson: Drawing interest from Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys brought Robinson in for a workout on Thursday, ESPN's Field Yates reports.

Robinson, formerly of the Jaguars, has also drawn interest from the Bears this offseason and even attended their veteran minicamp in May. While he obviously left Chicago without a contract, Robinson is still a serviceable backup who could provide depth to the Cowboys' shallow backfield, which could come in handy if the league office decides to suspend Ezekiel Elliott for the beginning of the season in the aftermath of the NFL's year-long investigation into the runner's legal situation.

Denard Robinson: Trying out for Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson will be one of the veterans trying out at the Bears' rookie camp, Rich Campbell of The Chicago Tribune reports.

Robinson spent last season, the final year of his rookie contract, serving as Jacksonville's No. 3 running back, totaling only 41 carries for 144 yards (3.5 per carry) in 13 games. He doesn't seem to have drawn much interest in free agency, and his participation in the upcoming rookie camp suggests he'll need to fight to stay in the league for another season. The former college quarterback hasn't done much since 2014, when he started nine games and took 135 carries for 582 yards (4.3 YPC) and four touchdowns. He's missed exactly three games in each of the last three seasons.

Jaguars' Denard Robinson: Appears in 13 games in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson appeared in 13 games for the Jaguars in 2016, rushing 41 times for 144 yards for an average of 3.5 yards per carry.

Robinson was relegated to mostly spot duty in 2016, as the Jaguars relied heavily on the combination of Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon, neither of whom proved to be overly productive in their own right. With Yeldon and Ivory banged up throughout the year, Robinson had a few opportunities to see an increased workload, most notably against the Bills (Nov. 27) and Broncos (Dec. 4), when he carried 13 and 17 times, respectively. He failed to rush for more than nine yards on a single carry in either contest, however, a hallmark of a Jaguars rushing attack that was among the most pitiful in the NFL on a week-to-week basis. Since entering the league as a converted quarterback in 2013, Robinson has held a steady role as a backup running back for the Jaguars, but with his contract set to expire this offseason, his future with the team is very much clouded. Considering both Yeldon and Ivory should be back in 2017, Robinson is perhaps more expendable than at any point in the past.

Jaguars' Denard Robinson: Starting RB candidate in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson is a candidate to start at running back against the Colts in Week 17 with Chris Ivory (hamstring) declared inactive, ESPN's Mike DiRocco reports.

The multi-tool back will therefore look to shake off an ankle injury that cost him time and close out a disappointing 2016 with a chance to flash his wares against a vulnerable Colts defense. After gaining a career-high 582 yards in 2014, Robinson has rushed for a combined 393 over the last two seasons, with just one touchdown over that span. Also available in the Jaguars' Week 17 backfield are Corey Grant, Bronson Hill and Joe Banyard.

Jaguars' Denard Robinson: Not on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (ankle) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's season finale against the Colts after practicing in a limited fashion this week.

With T.J. Yeldon on IR and Chris Ivory (hamstring) listed as questionable this week, the Jaguars may be forced to lean more heavily on the likes of Robinson and Corey Grant on Sunday. Robinson remains a speculative fantasy play this weekend, but his Week 17 fantasy upside would be boosted in the event that Ivory ends up being scratched Sunday.

Jaguars' Denard Robinson: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (ankle) was limited at practice Wednesday.

Robinson is still nursing the injury that kept him out of Saturday's win over the Titans, and his status for the Jags' Week 17 matchup with the Colts is firmly up in the air. With T.J. Yeldon on IR and Chris Ivory (hamstring) also limited, Jacksonville may be forced to lean more heavily on Corey Grant on Sunday.

Jaguars' Denard Robinson: Won't play this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Titans.

Robinson's absence is more of a hit to the Jaguars' backfield depth than it is to fantasy owners, with both T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory off the team's Week 16 injury report.

Jaguars' Denard Robinson: Sits out practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

An ankle injury continues to hamper the third string running back, and if he's unable to return to the practice field over the next two days, he'll miss a third consecutive contest. Regardless, even if healthy, Robinson's workload would be minimal with both T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory healthy.

Jaguars' Denard Robinson: Doesn't practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (ankle) did not practice Tuesday.

Robinson hasn't practiced since injuring his ankle three weeks ago, and he's sat out the Jaguars' past two games as well. His participation in practice on Wednesday and Thursday will provide a better indication of his status for Week 16.

Jaguars' Denard Robinson: Remains sidelined in Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans.

A high-ankle sprain will result in another absence for Robinson, but on the plus side, the Jaguars' ground game should get a boost with fellow RB Chris Ivory heading into the weekend minus an injury designation.

Jaguars' Denard Robinson: Sits out Thursday's session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (ankle) did not practice Thursday.

A high-ankle sprain kept Robinson out of action Sunday against Minnesota, and at this point the backup running back appears to be trending toward a second straight absence. With Chris Ivory (hamstring) still limited, it looks as though T.J. Yeldon will be in line to see the lion's share of snaps Sunday against Houston.

Jaguars' Denard Robinson: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Robinson missed this past Sunday's game with a high-ankle sprain and his absence from practice Wednesday clouds his Week 15 availability. With T.J. Yeldon no longer on the injury report, the Jaguars have at least one healthy back to lean on Sunday against the Texans. With that in mind, Chris Ivory continues to battle a hamstring injury and Corey Grant and Bronson remain on hand for depth purposes.

Jaguars' Denard Robinson: Will not play this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (ankle) will not play Sunday against the Vikings.

Robinson was unable to practice at all this week due to the high-ankle sprain he suffered last Sunday, and he will not be on the active roster in Week 14. T.J. Yeldon figures to see plenty of work in the backfield Sunday, but just how much exactly will depend on whether or not Chris Ivory (hamstring) is able to return to action.

Jaguars' Denard Robinson: Misses Thursday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (ankle) missed practice again Thursday.

With Robinson battling a high-ankle sprain and Chris Ivory still dealing with a hamstring issue, it's possible that Corey Grant could see added touches Sunday against the Vikings behind T.J. Yeldon (ankle), who is practicing fully this week.

Jaguars' Denard Robinson: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday.

A high ankle sprain forced Robinson out of Sunday's loss to the Broncos, but he still managed to lead the team in carries with 17. A decision on his Week 14 status won't be made until later in the week, though at this point it seems unlikely that he'd be near 100 percent, whether he plays or not. With Chris Ivory (hamstring) limited at practice Wednesday, T.J. Yeldon, who practiced in full, could be in line for a larger workload Sunday against Minnesota.

Jaguars' Denard Robinson: Injures ankle Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson suffered a high-ankle sprain during Sunday's loss to the Broncos, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports.

Robinson was forced to exit Sunday's contest during the third quarter, finishing with 53 rushing yards on 17 carries prior to suffering the injury. With Chris Ivory (hamstring) sidelined Sunday and T.J. Yeldon playing through an ankle injury of his own, Corey Grant appears to represent the Jaguars' only fully healthy running back at the moment.

Jaguars' Denard Robinson: Records 18 touches in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (ankle) rushed for 53 yards on 17 carries and caught an 11-yard pass during Sunday's loss to Denver before leaving the game in the third quarter with an injury. He did not record another touch.

The 17 carries nearly matched Robinson's season total as the former college quarterback filled in for an injured Chris Ivory (hamstring). Though he's notched 31 touches in the past two weeks, he's averaged just over 3.0 yards per carry and doesn't figure to be relegated back to a special teams role even if he's healthy as soon as Ivory returns.

Jaguars' Denard Robinson: Injures ankle Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson suffered an ankle injury during Sunday's game against the Broncos and is considered questionable to return, Tad Dickman of the team's official site reports.

Robinson's injury leaves T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant as the lone healthy options at running back for the Jaguars. Depending on the severity of Robinson's ankle issue, he may be able to return Sunday, while additional information regarding his status should become available in due time.

Jaguars' Denard Robinson: Figures to remain in backfield mix this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With Chris Ivory (hamstring) out this week, Robinson is likely to share carries with T.J. Yeldon on Sunday against the Broncos.

Normally Ivory's absence would pave the way for Yeldon to head the team's rushing attack, but Yeldon has been nursing an ankle issue and his potential Week 13 workload is something that coach Gus Bradley is viewing as a game-time decision. With that in mind, Robinson -- who logged 13 carries for 39 yards in Week 12 -- could once again see his share of touches in the Jaguars' offense Sunday.

Jaguars' Denard Robinson: Leads injury-riddled backfield in carries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson rushed 13 times for 39 yards but wasn't targeted in the passing game Sunday in Buffalo.

Robinson was thrust into extensive action with Chris Ivory exiting early due to a hamstring issue and T.J. Yeldon playing through an ankle injury. The former Michigan quarterback managed just 3.0 yards per attempt but did lead the Jaguars in carries. He and Yeldon likely would form a backfield platoon next week against the Broncos if Ivory is unable to play.
