Allen Robinson out at least two weeks with hamstring injury

Jaguars Rookie Minicamp Football AP

The hits keep on coming at wide receiver for the Jaguars.

Justin Blackmon is serving a lengthy suspension, Ace Sanders will miss the first four games serving a suspension of his own, Cecil Shorts is out for a while with a hamstring injury, Tandon Doss was forced out of Thursday’s practice with an ankle injury and now Allen Robinson is going to be on the shelf. Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union reports that Robinson also suffered a hamstring injury and that he is expected to miss at least the next two weeks while he recovers.

That leaves a chunk of time before the season starts, but the second-round pick is likely to miss a couple of preseason games and practice sessions vital to his ability to make a quick transition to the NFL. Robinson also battled hamstring woes in the spring, further limiting his exposure to the professional ranks and raising some concern that the problem may linger for more than a couple of weeks.

With all the absences, the Jaguars are down to rookie Marqise Lee, Mike Brown, Kerry Taylor and a slew of undrafted free agents at receiver. Chad Henne’s going to have his work cut out for him in the preseason.

    The Jaguars are not allowed to have wide receivers.

    It’s a law of the universe.

    This is killing me. You have to wonder who is stretching these guys out when 2 WRs are straining hammys. Are they drinking enough? C’mon, team.

    It’s long past time for Goodell to outlaw the use of hamstrings.

    Those things cause injuries and it’s all about player safety.

    Well, it’s all about profit. And player safety.

    Those hammies don’t linger, do they?

    Will Henne be the first starting QB of a team that completes no passes in the preseason ?

    Talk about setting someone up for failure.

    They’re definitely drinking enough. Just ask Blackmon.
