Rookie wide receiver Allen Robinson has sustained a stress fracture in his foot and will be sidelined for the rest of the 2014 season, the Jaguars announced today (Twitter link). Jacksonville has yet to officially place Robinson on the injured reserve list, but when the team makes that move, it will likely replace him by promoting someone from the practice squad, according to head coach Gus Bradley (Twitter link via John Oehser of Jaguars.com).
Robinson, 21, was one of two wideouts selected early in this past May’s draft by the Jags. After using the 39th overall pick on Marqise Lee, Jacksonville drafted Robinson 61st overall, and the Penn State product has outperformed his fellow rookie teammate this season. In 10 games, Robinson hauled in 48 passes for 548 yards and pair of touchdowns.
The Jaguars also announced (Twitter link) that cornerback Aaron Colvin will be activated later today from the reserve/non-football injury list. Assuming the team does indeed make a promotion from the taxi squad to replace Robinson, another player will have to be removed from the 53-man roster to clear room for Colvin.
