Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Jaguars running back Denard Robinson’s July 4 weekend took a turn for the worse early on Sunday when the car he was driving took a turn into a retention pond.

The Florida Times-Union reports that Robinson was found asleep behind the wheel of a car by police responding to reports about a car crashing into a pond early on Sunday morning. Neither Robinson nor his passenger were hurt.

Per the responding officer, Robinson woke up and then went back to sleep after a knock on the window before eventually being roused from his slumber. The police report adds that both Robinson and the other passenger were reluctant to exit the vehicle despite the officer telling them that the car was sinking into the pond.

Fantasy Impact: 

According to the report, Robinson was screened by two officers and found not to be intoxicated, the story went on to say. In a post to Twitter, Robinson indicated that he fell asleep at the wheel. We just posted a news story about the Jags RB situation and Robinson would likely be battling for the RB3 spot behind T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory.
