Jacksonville Jaguars Place Laurent Robinson On Injured Reserve
The Jacksonville Jaguars will play the rest of the 2012 without their top free agent prize from this past offseason.
The Jaguars announced that they have placed wide receiver Laurent Robinson on injured reserve after he suffered his fourth concussion of the season Sunday against the Houston Texans.
The Jaguars signed Robinson to a five-year, $32.5 million contract this offseason with $13.8 million in guaranteed money. Robinson finished the season with 24 catches for 252 yards.
Robinson was a highly sought after free agent target this offseason after catching 11 touchdown passes with the Dallas Cowboys last season.
Money is not the concern with Robinson now, however. The Jaguars encountered a similar situation with linebacker Clint Session suffering multiple concussion last season and he has yet to have been cleared to return to football activities. Now Robinson’s football playing future may be in great doubt.
Robinson has already expressed his concern with the rising amount of concussions he suffered earlier in the season. Now Robinson, who is a new father, has the entire offseason to decide whether or not he wants to continue his football career given all the new information players now have on traumatic brain injuries.
The Jaguars have signed wide receivers Jordan Shipley and Carlton Mitchell over the past two days to help fill the depth chart with the loss of Robinson, but the Jaguars will likely turn to rookie Kevin Elliott to take over Robinson’s role in the offense.
Shipley, a third-round selection of the Cincinnati Bengals, was the leading rookie receiver in 2010 with 52 catches for 600 yards, but has struggled to come back from a knee injury he suffered early in the 2011 season. Mitchell was sixth-round selection of the Cleveland Browns in 2010 and was released prior to the 2012 season.
