The Jacksonville Jaguars’ joy at winning their season opener against the Houston Texans was tempered by the news that wide receiver Allen Robinson had suffered a season-ending torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
Robinson was hurt on a seemingly benign play. After hauling in a 17-yard pass on third down from Blake Bortles, he was pushed out of bounds by Kevin Johnson and limped off the field. That was his only catch of the day.

This was certainly the fear after the injury went down. Lee could be the team's WR1, according to our depth chart, but he was targeted four times without a catch. Hurns did catch three balls for 42 yards. It looks like the offense will continue to revolve around the run game.

Week 1 at Houston Texans
Allen Robinson was considered a true No. 1 receiver heading into last season before he got Bortled. Yes, I just made up my own verb. He also got Bortled up last season by the Texans in Houston after posting a 9-107-1 line at home. In the rematch in Houston, he had just two catches for 15 yards. He likely won't be as good as he was in the home meeting last season and not as bad as the road matchup. Look for Robinson to post good enough numbers to serve as a No. 3 receiver with a little upside this week.
