Laurent Robinson suffers another concussion


Laurent Robinson’s first season in Jacksonville isn’t going quite as well as he or the team hoped.

Robinson got off on the wrong foot when training camp started and has just nine catches and 134 yards in four games this season. Now he’s dealing with his third concussion since the start of camp as well. Robinson was injured in Sunday’s loss to the Bengals, making it two straight games with a concussion for the wide receiver.

Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports that Robinson isn’t expected to play against Chicago in Week Five, which is to be expected given the short interval between concussions. The Jaguars have a bye in Week Six, so he could wind up missing just one game although it wouldn’t be surprising if Robinson wound up missing more time.

We’re not sure how much that would actually hurt the Jaguars passing offense. The Jags are gaining just 146.1 yards per game through the air, which leaves them next to last in that statistic. Robinson’s absence clearly isn’t what the team wanted when they signed him to a five-year, $32.5 million deal, but things can’t really get too much worse in the passing game.

  1. This is his THIRD concussion since training camp? He needs to be put on injured reserve. Immediately. Three concussions in such a short period of time is not okay! Sometimes players need to be protected from themselves. This might be one of those times.

    Robinson did so well for us last year because he and Romo had a great chemistry. Romo MADE him look good!!!!!!! He stepped up as our #1 receiver, with the injuries. Sure as heck, we’d take him back and he would produce 😉 😉

  3. Come on people. You might hate Romo but at least he makes receivers look good. If anyone thought Robinson would actually produce there they are complete idiots.

  4. That’s what happens when you pay a 3rd receiver big money to be your #1.

    Matching up against a #1 CB is a bit different than playing the slot and overmatching a nickel corner…

    Also, this was his only good season in his career.. not sure why a team shelled out the dough for him.. desperation is in the air I guess.

  5. Jags are the worst team I have seen in a long time. I sat through that game yesterday and left scratching my head. So many high draft picks that can’t play as a team for 60 minutes. Worst game plan ever. Can’t tackle, can’t block, can’t catch, can’t cover and can’t draft. Is it too late to fire the head coach and the rest of crap he brought with him?

  6. Three concussions??? Is continuing to play football really worth the long term implications? At this point even the Cowboys should not re-sign him if available.

  7. It’s hard to say how Robinson’s year would be going as a Cowboy in 2012 after an outstanding 2011. So far in 2012, it would appear that Ogletree is getting Robinson’s numbers for Dallas with 14 catches and 197 yards.

  8. Apparently his hands had three concussions as well, since he’s dropped almost every pass thrown to him…
