With Laurent Robinson out, Jags add a receiver

AP

The Jaguars haven’t officially announced wide receiver Laurent Robinson’s status for Sunday’s game against the Bears, but they sent a pretty good signal that he won’t be on the field after suffering his second concussion in as many weeks.

The team announced that they have signed wide receiver Micheal Spurlock to the roster on Friday. Spurlock was released by the Chargers earlier this week to make room for cornerback Chris Carr. He played in each of the first four games for San Diego, returning one punt as part of a portfolio that was mainly made up of special teams work. That’s been Spurlock’s main value over the course of his career, including three returns for touchdowns as a member of the Buccaneers.

Robinson hasn’t practiced this week and might need a good deal more time to recover before he’s able to return to the field. He suffered another concussion during training camp, leaving him with three in less than three months, a total that has to be concerning to any neurologist charged with returning him to the field of play.

The Jags also promoted defensive end Ryan Davis from the practice squad. Offensive lineman Daniel Baldridge and defensive end Aaron Morgan were waived to make room on the 53-man roster.

  1. Most fire hydrants have more punt return yards than the Jaguars’ Mike Thomas – any help would be good in that regard…

  2. He’s actually better than one might think. He isn’t a gut who’s ever going to get you a handful of catches, but he has great hands so he’ll surprise you with a clutch catch here and there. Also a great return man, obviously. The Jags could definitely do a lot worse than bringing in Spur lock.

  3. I’m surprised that Gene Smith isn’t going after any CFL rejects these days.

    After all, He is a “super genius” who knows better about picking talent than anyone else and built the Jag’s current roster filled with DivII & DivIII “superstars” with “good motors”.

    Matt Millen as GM of the Lions had nothing on Gene Smith for incompetence. The sooner this guy goes….the better !!!

  4. Gene Smith – C’On man we are tried on you scavenging other roster and you should be knowing that it most likely wont work. From Don Cary to Jason Hill, From Chastin West to whoever , it never worked.

    We are tired of your antique. This is going to be your last year. Screwup as much as you can. You know what you will never get a similar opportunity anywhere.

  5. Is this the same Spurlock guy that did the “Super Size Me” movie. Might as well be. C’mon Gene, give Ocho Cinco…errr Chad Johnson or T.O. a flyer. Could they really make your WR corps that much worse at this point? The Jags have the worst passing game in the league and yet we pick up scraps.
