The Jacksonville Jaguars could be without wide receiver Allen Robinson for a long time. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the fourth-year receiver sustained a major knee injury, per a source.

Robinson sustained the knee injury on the first drive of the game during his first catch of the season.

Two seasons ago, Robinson earned a Pro Bowl spot with over 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns. He regressed, along with the rest of the Jaguars offense, in 2016 but with a revamped run game and a better receiving corps he was expected to have a season more along his 2015 trend.

Without Robinson, the Jaguars will lean even more on Leonard Fournette and Chris Ivory through the rest of the season. The defense will also be counted on, but if they play anything like their 10-sack performance in Week 1, that should help tremendously.
