Jacksonville Jaguars RB James Robinson ruled out, falling short of undrafted rookie record


#Jacksonville #Jaguars running back #James #Robinson’s nearly historic season is over.

#Coach #Doug #Marrone said #Robinson won’t play in the season finale at #Indianapolis due to an ankle injury, leaving the running back 35 yards shy of breaking the record for most rushing yards by an undrafted rookie. #Robinson, who also missed #Week 16, finishes 2020 with 1,070 yards, 34 behind #Dominic #Rhodes’ mark of 1,104 yards set in 2001.

“I was holding out hope. I really was,” #Marrone said, “but it doesn’t look like he’s going to be up for our game. I think that’s safe to say that he’ll be out.”

#Marrone also said he was unsure if wide receiver DJ #Chark (shin) will be able to play against the #Colts (10-5), who are facing a must-win game as they seek to make the playoffs.

#Robinson is third in the NFL in rushing behind #Derrick #Henry and #Dalvin #Cook, but #Aaron #Jones (1,062) and #David #Montgomery (1,001) are close behind. #Robinson is sixth in the NFL in scrimmage yards (1,414).

#He is just the third rookie to rush for 1,000 yards in #Jaguars history, joining #Fred #Taylor (1,223 in 1998) and #Leonard #Fournette (1,040 in 2017).

“I can never, ever say enough about that guy — I really can’t — about how hard he tries,” #Marrone said of #Robinson. “#He wants to come back. #He wants to play.”

The #Jaguars signed #Robinson as an undrafted free agent out of #Illinois #State, and he was so impressive in training camp that #Jacksonville cut #Fournette just before the season began.
