In a potentially big blow for the Jaguars and fantasy football owners, wide receiver Allen Robinson went to the locker room with a knee injury early in Jacksonville's Week 1 game against the Texans. Aaron Rodgers' regular-season streak of passes without an interception ended at a career-high 251 when Nazair Jones intercepted him at 9:26 of the first quarter of Green Bay's 17-9 win over Seattle.

"What I think about is how hard A-Rob has worked, and how much he's put in", Marrone said on a conference call Monday afternoon, a day after the Jaguars' 29-7 victory at NRG Stadium in Houston. If so, it's possible Robinson would be lost for the remainder of the season. He finished with only 883 yards and six touchdowns.

Robinson was also the first Jaguars receiver to compile over 1,000 receiving yards in a single season since Jimmy Smith back in 2005, also finishing tied for the league lead with 14 touchdowns.

With Robinson injured and rookie Dede Westbrook on injured reserve, the Jaguars have four healthy receivers on the roster: Marqise Lee, Allen Hurns, rookie Keelan Cole and Arrelious Benn.

Hurns caught Lee's injury bug in 2016, missing the last five games of the season due to a hamstring issue. As you can see here, Robinson caught the pass and ran toward the sideline.
