The Jacksonville Jaguars looked to earn their third win of the season in Week 16 as they faced the New York Jets. Early on in the game, the Jaguars lost one of their top offensive players early.
In the first half, Jacksonville running back James Robinson went down with a non-contact injury to his left ankle. After being helped to the medical tent, Robinson was carted off the field with a towel over his head.
The Jaguars immediately ruled Robinson out for the remainder of the game for what was described as an Achilles injury. Then, NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reported that Robinson had suffered a torn Achilles.
