JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The bye week may be coming at the perfect time for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
With the injury to rookie left tackle Cam Robinson’s left ankle being diagnosed as a sprain, the team could be back to full strength when the players come back to work on Oct. 30 to begin preparations for their Nov. 5 home game against Cincinnati.
Coach Doug Marrone said he did not know the severity of Robinson’s injury or how long he could be out, but Robinson benefits from the fact that the team will not practice this week and he can concentrate on receiving treatment over the next six days. Marrone said Robinson will test the ankle on Monday and the team would go from there.
If it’s not a severe sprain, there’s a chance Robinson could be back on the field against the Bengals.
The Jaguars (4-3) could have running back Leonard Fournette (ankle) and center Brandon Linder (illness) back as well. Fournette was injured late in the Jaguars’ 27-17 loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Oct. 15 and missed last Sunday’s game against Indianapolis. Linder has missed the Jaguars’ last three games.
