James Robinson is, apparently, back.
The Jacksonville Jaguars finally got the second-year running back going in Sunday’s 31-19 loss to the Arizona Cardinals at TIAA Bank Field. He ran for 88 yards and a touchdown and caught six passes for 46 yards in his most significant work of the season.

In the Jaguars' first two games, Robinson had just 16 carries for 72 yards and caught six passes for 46 yards, including only five carries for 25 yards in the season-opening road loss to the Houston Texans. He got more work in Week 2 – 11 carries for 47 yards – but that still wasn’t enough work considering he was averaging 4.5 yards per carry. Perhaps the best news is HC Urban Meyer was quoted as saying, “Yeah, those guys [Robinson and Hyde] are running hard, and we're going to continue to get them the ball.” The team takes on the Bengals and Titans but the story said Robinson's workload should increase.
