Dopo un fumble del primo quarto, Robinson non ha più rivisto il campo fino al terzo quarto. Ha finito con solo otto carry per 24 yard, con tre in arrivo negli ultimi due minuti di gioco. Head coach Urban Meyer denied after the game that Robinson was benched and said he was injured. Asked after the game by ESPN’s Michael DiRocco whether Robinson would have remained in the game if he didn’t fumble, Meyer gave a two-word response.
“Oh, sicuro,” Ha detto Meyer.
In a Monday appearance on Jags Report Live, Robinson refuted Meyer’s claim.
“quando [a fumble] happens and you’re out for that long, you’ve gotta feel that way,” Ha detto Robinson. “I was just waiting my turn to get back in the game and it didn’t really come until the third quarter.”
When asked on Monday why Robinson saw three carries in the fourth quarter if he was injured, Meyer gave an odd answer.
“That’s a good question,” Ha detto Meyer.
Robinson himself couldn’t answer that question and said his fourth-quarter appearance left him confused.
“I knew the game was over by that point,” Ha detto Robinson. “I probably should’ve been resting. I’m not sure what the point of that was.”
With the loss, Jacksonville fell to 2-10 in Meyer’s first season as a head coach in the NFL. Robinson, nel frattempo, is 13th in rushing yards this season with 678 after finishing fifth in 2020 con 1,070.
Robinson is actually averaging more yards per carry, 4.9 rispetto a 4.5, but has seen a noticeable dip in touches. Robinson has yet to see 20 carries in any game this season. Nel 2020, he had four games of 20 or more carries. He’s also had three games with eight carries or less after having zero last season.
