Jaguars' Allen Robinson has torn ACL, will miss rest of season

Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee remain the top receiving options at wide receiver, but don't sleep on Keelan Cole.

Jacksonville Jaguars fans were riding high after Sunday's dominant win against the Houston Texans, but lost in the celebrations over the win and the worries about hurricane Irma back home was an injury to a significant player.

He played in all 16 games for the first time in three National Football League seasons, setting career highs with 105 targets, 63 receptions, 851 yards and three touchdowns.

Robinson caught a 17-yard pass from quarterback Blake Bortles and his momentum sent him out of bounds.

After a breakout 2015 season with 80 receptions for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns, Robinson was a disappointment last season with 73 receptions, 883 yards and six touchdowns. He was the Jaguars' primary X receiver and Bortles' No. 1 target. He caught a pass for 18 yards in his Jaguars debut Sunday.

"What I think about is how hard A-Rob has worked, and how much he's put in", Marrone said on a conference call Monday afternoon, a day after the Jaguars' 29-7 victory at NRG Stadium in Houston. Westbrook in particular seems to have the traits you look for in a number one receiver, so it will interesting to see how many snaps he gets when he finally gets on to the field. Robinson's injury was so bad, that he was ruled out for the game.

Robinson is the third Jaguars wide receiver to have his season potentially ended prematurely in the last few weeks.

Other free agent receivers available include Vincent Jackson (who is now a restauranteur in St. Petersburg, Florida), Eddie Royal and Stevie Johnson.
