Give the NFL credit for truth in advertising.
According to Mark Long of the Associated Press, the Jaguars are no longer listing rookie Denard Robinson as an OW — or offensive weapon — since the league asked them to pick a traditional designation for him.
Given the fact that he has thus far not proven himself to offensive or a weapon, it seems appropriate.
Robinson has five rushing attempts for minus-1 yards. He has fumbled once, but has yet to catch a pass, and has gained a perfectly acceptable 54 yards on two kickoff returns.
He’ll now be referred to simply as a wide receiver.
It’s not terribly much fun, but then again, neither is watching the Jaguars play, unless you’re lubed up on free beer.
