Allen Robinson out for the season with ACL injury

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Jacksonville Jaguars Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Allen Robinson is out for the 2017 season with a torn ACL injury.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without their star wide receiver, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Robinson was in a contract year, but it looks like he’ll be delaying his second contract for a franchise tag this offseason and will come back in 2018 looking for a long-term deal.

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 Ivorythrough 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.
