The Jacksonville Jaguars got the win on Sunday, Sept 16th, over the New England Patriots, but lost starting left tackle Cam Robinson for the season with a torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) on his left leg.
Jacksonville has already lost wide receiver Marqise Lee for the current campaign due to knee ligament damage after a hit on his knee that occurred in the preseason.
But the "next man up" approach has worked early on for the Jaguars, with T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant stepping up at running back in a 31-20 victory over the Patriots where starting running back Leonard Fournette did not play a single down due to a hamstring injury.
Both quarterback Blake Bortles and the rushing attack were able to move the ball sans Fournette and Robinson, with Robinson being out the majority of the contest versus New England. Look to backup offensive tackle Josh Wells, currently in his fourth season out of James Madison University, to aid the Jaguars at left tackle as he did en route to their 31-20 win on Sunday against the Patriots.
