After a solid season, the Jacksonville Jaguars are still in the playoff race. stunning, last-second victory They beat the Dallas Cowboys by a score of 40-34 on Sunday. However, one of their touchdowns cost them dearly.
Doug Pederson, the head coach, announced Monday that left tackle Cam Robinson will be out of action due to a torn meniscus. Walker Little will replace Robinson for the rest of the season.
Robinson was injured in the third quarter on the same play that gave them a four point lead over the Cowboys. Mia O’Brien (local Jacksonville sports reporter) said that Robinson’s injury occurred in the third quarter. Lawrence waved for the cart almost immediately After completing the touchdown pass. Trevon Diggs, Cowboys cornerback and Robinson’s teammate in Alabama, ran immediately to Robinson’s aid.
Robinson was able walk off the field without Lawrence’s help. Robinson wasn’t able to make it back into play after the injury was initially diagnosed as a knee problem.
Robinson hasn’t had an extraordinary year, but Lawrence is at the most difficult time to lose his protector. The Jags have three crucial games left to play, with a possible playoff bid. They will face the New York Jets, Houston Texans and the ever-threatening Tennessee Titans in Week 16. Lawrence will require protection. But will Little, the next man up, be able provide it?
It’s hard to know at this point. Little, in his second season in the NFL has played 51 offensive snaps. This is five percent of all offensive snaps that the Jags have taken. Robinson, however, has been on field for almost 100 percent the offensive snaps. Little has a steep learning curve and Lawrence is likely hoping that he will be a quick learner.
