Friday update: Robinson was a full participant in Friday’s practice and should be ready to go for Week 14 against the Titans.
Thursday pm update: Robinson got Thursday off for “load management,” per Mark Long. After all the backlash of Robinson getting benched after a fumble, playing in a blowout, and then having Trevor Lawrence have his back, we could see more of Robinson this week.
Thursday update: The team could just be giving Robinson a day to rest his injuries, but it is noteworthy that he wasn’t spotted at practice during the open period where beat reporters are allowed to watch. We’ll see what his status on today’s injury report tells us.

Jacksonville Jaguars second-year running back James Robinson was limited in practice on Wednesday due to heel and knee injuries, per Paul Kuharksy. Robinson has been dealing with these two injuries over the course of the last few weeks.
Fantasy football implications
The young running back only saw eight carries in the Jaguars’ 37-7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Also, Robinson only played 44% of offensive snaps in last week’s game, which was his second-lowest snaps played this season.
This season, the 5-foot-9 running back has 678 rushing yards, seven touchdowns, along with 28 receptions (40 targets) for 209 yards. Robinson will try to bounce back against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, who he had success against earlier this year. Back in Week 5, the former Illinois State running back recorded a season-high 149 yards on 18 carries and a touchdown (20.7 fantasy points). The Titans’ defense is also allowing 15.9 fantasy points per game, which is the fourth-best in the NFL.
