The Jacksonville Jaguars pulled out their first win of the season on Sunday, beating the Miami Dolphins 23-20 thanks to a late fourth quarter drive and field goal. It was an interesting game that saw the team jump out to an early lead and then appear as if they might let Miami steal one, just like in 2014, but they were able to gut it out and get the victory. Unfortunately, there were some more injuries in the game.
The biggest injury news is from running back Denard Robinson, who had one carry for nine yards and Sunday and then promptly left the game.
Denard Robinson had a big brace on his left knee and needed crutches. Said sprained MCL but wouldn't estimate how long he'd be out.— Ryan O'Halloran (@ryanohalloran) September 21, 2015
The Jaguars are already banged up at the running back position, with Toby Gerhart still nursing an abdominal injury he suffered in the preseason. With a sprained MCL for Robinson, he could be out anywhere from 2-4 weeks, depending on the severity. Rookie T.J. Yeldon has done a fine job and definitely has shown flashes of being a playmaker, but Robinson was a nice change of pace to Yeldon and looked as if he was due for another big day against the Dolphins.
In other injury news, Davon House left the game with dehydration and ended up going to the hospital with some chest congestion, but should be good to go going forward. Rookie received Rashad Greene has a thumb injury, which I'm sure will be updated by Wednesday and Dwayne Gratz sprained his ankle, but hopes to practice this week. Aaron Colvin also took an IV bag on the sideline, but only missed a couple of snaps and should be fine for this week against the New England Patriots
