Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Allen Robinson will miss the remainder of the 2017 season after suffering a torn left ACL in Sunday’s victory over the Houston Texans.
Robinson will have surgery in the coming weeks to repair the damage, coach Doug Marrone said Monday afternoon.
Robinson was hurt on the third play of Sunday’s game after he caught a 17-yard pass from Blake Bortles on third-and-2 to convert the first down. He was unable to walk to the sideline and was immediately tended to by the Jaguars’ medical staff before walking off the field to the locker room.
Critics of Los Angeles getting the NFL back said that the dream of football in Southern California would be more idyllic than the reality, and Week 1 seems to bear that out. Perhaps the justification is ticket price. Maybe fans don’t want to fork over premium prices to see the Rams play, let alone the Rams playing a Colts team without Andrew Luck.
The average price of a movie in L.A. is $8.17, on last check. It was cheaper to see an NFL game in person than catch the matinee of IT and still nobody went. There’s nothing more to say.
Maybe the Raiders making a break for Las Vegas will be the real geniuses of all this.
