The Jacksonville Jaguars dismantled the New England Patriots 31-10 on Sunday, but suffered a huge loss mid-way through the game. Starting left tackle Cam Robinson, who had a rough preseason but had started the regular season well, went down in a heap with an injury and had to be helped off the field. At the time it didn’t look good and now we know in fact it was not good.
Robinson is now out for the season with a torn ACL, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

As Rapoport states, it is a brutal loss for a Jaguars offensive line that seemed like it was just starting to hit it’s stride as a unit. They did well against the New York Giants in Week 1 and manhandled the Patriots in Week 2, but going forward there’s going to be a big concern at the left tackle spot without Robinson in the lineup.
Josh Wells stepped in on Sunday and did a good enough job to where you completely forgot he was playing, but he’s going to have to step up in a big way this season after having a rough preseason.
