Jaguars RB James Robinson suffers torn Achilles vs. Jets

The Jaguars suffered a loss in the standings and on the roster Sunday, the latter in the form of their best offensive player.

James Robinson was quickly ruled out with an Achilles injury after exiting in the first quarter of Jacksonville's 26-21 loss to the Jets. The initial diagnosis is that the standout running back suffered a tear and will have an MRI to determine the severity of it, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.

Jags interim coach Darrell Bevell confirmed after the game that Robinson suffered a torn Achilles.

Robinson was lined up in the backfield when he crumbled to the ground without contact on a play that went for a 6-yard run by Tavon Austin. Robinson managed to walk off the field under his own power but was carted to the locker room.

Jacksonville's bell-cow back had rushed three times for 10 yards. He came into the weekend leading the Jags in rushing (757 yards), and third in receiving (31 catches) with a team-best eight touchdowns.

Dare Ogunbowale carried the ball 17 times in Robinson's absence for 57 yards and a touchdown.
