Jaguars Place Rookie WR Allen Robinson on Injured Reserve

Jaguars Place Rookie WR Allen Robinson on Injured Reserve

iStock/Thinkstock(JACKSONVILLE, Fla.) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars placed wide receiver Allen Robinson on the injured reserve list Tuesday because of a broken right foot. He suffered the injury during Sunday’s 31-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in London.

The Jaguars selected Robinson out of Penn State in the second round of this year’s NFL draft. In his rookie campaign, he had 48 receptions for 548 yards and two touchdowns. Robinson leads the team in receptions and receiving yards.

With Robinson out, the Jaguars are expected to rely heavily on veterans Cecil Shorts III as well as rookies Allen Hurns and Marquise Lee.

Jaguars Stun Browns, Get First Win of Season

Jaguars Stun Browns, Get First Win of Season

David Dermer/Diamond Images/Getty Images(JACKSONVILLE, Fla.) -- Denard Robinson rushed for a career-high 127 yards and a touchdown while the Jacksovnille defense held Cleveland to just 69 yards on the ground en route to a 24-6 Jaguars win on Sunday. It was the first win of the year for Jacksonville (1-6), snapping a nine-game losing streak.

The Browns (3-3) took a 6-0 lead with a pair of field goals from Billy Cundiff despite being inside the 20-yard line on both drives. They found themselves on the wrong side of the scoreboard just before halftime when Blake Bortles and Allen Robinson connected for a 31-yard touchdown pass.

Jacksonville added to their lead in the third quarter with a Josh Scobee field goal, the only points by either team in that period. The Jaguars let their defense do the rest, keeping the league's third-best rushing attack in check while forcing three turnovers. The victory was the first for the franchise since Dec. 15, 2013 when they beat the Houston Texans.

Only adding to the Browns' frustration was the inability to score on three interceptions of Bortles. Quarterback Brian Hoyer was just 16-for-41 passing with 215 yards while Ben Tate rushed for a team-high 36 yards.

Robinson, a star quarterback at Michigan in college, carried the ball 22 times and scored on an eight-yard scamper in the fourth quarter that put Jacksonville ahead 17-6.

Robert Griffin III Exits with Dislocated Ankle

Robert Griffin III Exits with Dislocated Ankle

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(LANDOVER, Md.) -- The Washington Redskins (1-1) dominated Jacksonville, 41-10 on Sunday, but did it without starting quarterback Robert Griffin III. The third-year signal caller was carted off the field after suffering a dislocated ankle in the first quarter.

Backup quarterback Kirk Cousins played admirably in relief, throwing for 250 yards and two touchdowns in the win over the Jaguars (0-2).

Griffin is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday, but could miss the remainder of the season.

"I'm just trying to stay in a good place," said Griffin. "Our spirits are high. We're always thinking positive. We'll see what happens tomorrow and whatever information comes out, we'll know what the timetable is from there."

This marks the second time in his career that Griffin faces a potential season-ending injury. In 2012, Griffin suffered a torn ACL in his right knee, forcing him to miss the final four games of the regular season.

Jaguars Sign Blake Bortles

David Dermer/Diamond Images/Getty Images(JACKSONVILLE, Fla.) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars signed their rookie quarterback Blake Bortles on Wednesday.

Bortles was drafted by the team with the No. 3 pick and signed a four-year contract worth $20.65 million.

"It's awesome," Bortles told Jaguars.com on Wednesday. "It's a once in a lifetime thing to sign your first contract, it's a cool feeling." 

Chad Henne is scheduled to be the starter in 2014, but Bortles is taking everything in stride as he prepares for training camp in July.
