Ian Rapoport dropped some unfortunate, albeit expected, news on the injury front for the Jags. The Jaguars' starting left tackle, Cam Robinson, will likely start training camp on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list.
Robinson suffered an ACL tear in the Jaguars' week two victory over the Patriots in 2018. He hasn't been able to practice since. It's been less than a calendar year since the injury, so as I said before, this isn't a shock.
I'm by no means suggesting that the Jaguars should attempt to get Cam Robinson back on the field before he is ready. But the sooner he's back at one hundred percent, the better the Jaguars' odds of starting the season off on the right foot, especially on offense.
The hope here is that Robinson, who is entering his third year in the league, will be ready to go for the start of the regular season. If he isn't available until after the beginning of the regular season, the Jaguars will be behind the eight ball in the blocking department. They'd likely have to lean on either Cedric Ogbuehi or Josh Wells if that scenario comes to fruition. Neither Ogbuehi, a Bengals cast off, or Wells, a career swing tackle, inspires much confidence. Both tackles could stand to see some reps with the starters throughout camp with Robinson on the mend.
It should also be noted that Robinson is eligible to be elevated to the active roster at any time with this designation.
