Jags WR Robinson (ACL) out for rest of season

5:09 PM ET

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Allen Robinson will miss the remainder of the 2017 season after tearing his left ACL in Sunday’s victory over the Houston Texans.

Robinson will have surgery in the coming weeks, coach Doug Marrone said Monday afternoon.

Robinson was hurt on the third play of Sunday’s game after he caught a 17-yard pass from Blake Bortles on third-and-2 to convert a first down. The Jaguars’ medical staff attended to him before he walked off the field to the locker room.

Robinson, who has 202 catches for 2,848 yards and 22 touchdowns in his three-plus seasons, is in the final year of his rookie contract. The sides had preliminary discussions about an extension, but the injury puts a hold on things.

Without Robinson, the Jaguars will have to rely on Marqise Lee and Allen Hurns, as well as veteran Arrelious Benn, who is one of the team’s core special-teams players.
