Jaguars left tackle Cam Robinson left the game yesterday in the first quarter with an apparent lower body injury and was not able to return as the Jaguars took down the Patriots 30-21.
This morning we learned that Robinson underwent an MRI after the game and the Jaguars worst fears were realized: Cam Robinson suffered a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the 2018 season.
Robinson was off to a good start in his second year in the league. Through a little over four quarters of football he looked to be the Jaguars best run blocker and had been excellent in pass protection. The 2017 second round pick out of Alabama will likely be the Jaguars starting left tackle for years to come, but his focus now will be to undergo successful knee surgery. to rehab and to get back to football by the beginning of the 2019 season.
It's never easy losing a young player of Robinson's caliber, but the Jaguars made sure that they had quality depth heading into the 2018 season on both sides of the line of scrimmage. Swing tackle Josh Wells will play in Robinson's stead. Wells wasn't impressive this preseason, but has been around for a while and has shown the ability to play at a competent level in the past. He played well in mop up duty against the Patriots yesterday.
For the Jaguars, as always, it's next man up. The Jaguars take on the Titans in week three. Josh Wells will have a tough task against the Jaguars divisional opponent, the Titans, next week. They're not seen as one of the better pass rushing teams in football, but with Kamalei Correa, Brian Orakpo, and Derrick Morgan all playing on the edge Wells will have his work cut out for him.
Stay tuned for more.
