There were a lot of negative moments to focus on in Jacksonville’s 31-7 loss to Seattle on Sunday, but one of the most concerning came when James Robinson was shoved out of bounds after a 14-yard run, his longest of the day. He collided with a piece of equipment on the sidelines, and though he appeared to be alright in real time, he didn’t enter the game for the following series. He was later listed as questionable to return with an ankle injury but did not see the field again.
After the game, coach Urban Meyer updated his status. As it turns out, he did not injure his ankle but rather suffered a bruised heel in the loss to the Seahawks. Meyer said that he does not know the extent of the injury or how long Robinson will be sidelined.

Robinson had four carries for 22 yards before he had to leave the game on Sunday, and he’s been one of the few bright spots for Jacksonville this season. He already has 468 yards and five scores after finishing as a 1,000-yard rusher as an undrafted rookie in 2020.
If he’s unable to go next week against the Buffalo Bills, the Jaguars will likely once again turn to Carlos Hyde, who had just 39 yards on nine carries, and Dare Ogunbowale, who had nine yards on two carries.
While it doesn’t sound like the injury is too serious, it could impact his status in the coming weeks. We’ll keep you posted with updates to this story here at Jaguars Wire.
