Bradley says Denard Robinson 'ready' to compete


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/25/2014) Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings that running back Denard Robinson is preparing for a bigger role in 2014.

As a rookie in 2013, Robinson was limited to 20 carries for 66 yards, and his role was undefined after making the transition from college quarterback to NFL rusher.

"Around Week 14 last year, he said, 'Gus, what do I need to do?' And he has really competed," Bradley said. "I think he's up to 212 pounds and he came to us at 197. He has taken a different approach. He's coming in to get ready and he understands he's a running back."


Denard Robinson to get long look in preseason


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2014) Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said he's intrigued to see what running back Denard Robinson can do in 2014. “He’s really competitive, and he’s really spirited," Bradley told the Florida Times-Union. "I think he went through last year and said, ‘OK, I don’t want to go through that feeling again.’"

Robinson played just 52 snaps last season, running 20 times for 66 yards. He fumbled Week 3 at Seattle and fumbled at the goal line Week 15 against Buffalo. Bradley disputed the notion that Robinson is a "gimmick guy."

“He can maybe run outside zone and get to the point where he runs north," the coach said. "But how can you tell off 10 runs?”


Denard Robinson 'could be a surprise'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2014) Jaguars running back Denard Robinson is an intriguing player who's bulking up to handle the pounding of playing running back, reports ESPN.com. "If he can solve his fumbling problems, he could be a surprise," the report said.

Robinson ran 20 times for 66 yards as a rookie.


Jaguars optimistic about Denard Robinson


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/7/2014) The Jaguars brass seems to be willing to stick with running back Denard Robinson even though his rookie season was a bust. During a fan event in Jacksonville on Thursday, general manager Dave Caldwell told the media that the team was "really optimistic about D-Rob," referring to Robinson. 

The Jaguars could opt to let veteran Maurice Jones-Drew walk in free agency and have Robinson contribute as a running back, though he'd have to put on some more weight first. Last year Robinson had 66 yards on 20 carries and no receptions. 


Denard Robinson, Lamaar Thomas contribute


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Jaguars running back Denard Robinson and wide receiver Lamaar Thomas both made small contributions Week 16 against the Titans.

Robinson had one carry for 11 yards, and Thomas had one catch for 13. Thomas' catch was the first of his career.


Denard Robinson receives two carries


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Jaguars offensive weapon Denard Robinson received two carries Week 15.

Robinson showed both his potential and inexperience in one play. Robinson fumbled at the end of a 24 yard run near the goal line. The ball went out of bounds in the end zone, allowing Buffalo to take over. Robinson finished with 28 rushing yards. He'll face the Titans Week 16.


Jaguars have plan if starting RB is sidelined Week 15


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2013) Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said Monday running back Maurice Jones-Drew is feeling better after hurting his hamstring Thursday, but added the veteran running back is being considered questionable to play Week 15 vs. Buffalo. Bradley confirmed Jones-Drew might not be able to practice until Friday.

If Jones-Drew is out Sunday, Bradley said the carries will go to running backs Jordan Todman and Denard Robinson. The Jaguars signed running back Delone Carter for depth Monday.


Jaguars backups split carries


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) The Jaguars split work pretty evenly between their backup running backs in Week 10, but it was Jordan Todman who received the most important carries over Denard Robinson in a 29-27 win over the Titans.

Todman received one fewer carry than Robinson in the game, but had a more productive game overall. He rushed for just 11 yards, but scored on one of them, a 5-yard run. Robinson finished with just 3 yards on four carries.

Both backs will likely continue to see time behind Maurice Jones-Drew, heading into Week 11 against the Cardinals.


Jaguars backs take the field in Week 10


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is active and in uniform for Week 10 against the Titans, after being listed on the injury report with a knee injury. Jones-Drew was able to get through the week in practice despite the injury, so his status does not come as much of a surprise.

He is joined among the team's active players by fellow running back Denard Robinson, who was also considered probable while dealing with a hamstring issue. 


Jaguars mostly healthy for game against Titans


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/8/2013) The injury report released by the winless Jaguars on Friday paints an encouraging picture of their health heading into their Sunday clash against AFC South rival Tennessee.

Only wide receiver Stephen Williams (Achilles) is doubtful. Tight end Danny Noble (knee) and guard Will Rackley (concussion) are questionable. Listed as probable are running back Maurice Jones-Drew (knee), defensive tackles Roy Miller (shoulder) and Sen'Derrick Marks (ankle) and wide receivers Denard Robinson (hamstring) and Cecil Shorts (groin).

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) Jaguars running back Denard Robinson saw four carries during the Week 8 loss to the 49ers from London Sunday. He rushed for 15 yards.

Robinson did not see any passes go his way from quarterback Chad Henne. The 23-year-old had his best rushing game of the season, but has yet to score. The Jaguars have a bye Week 9.

Jaguars backup runners do little


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2013) Jaguars backup rushers Denard Robinson, Will Ta'ufo'ou and Justin Forsett failed to do much against the Broncos Week 6.

Robinson picked up 1 carry for 2 yards. Ta'ufo'ou didn't fare much better, picking up 1 yard on the ground and 5 yards in the air. Forsett rushed once for no gain, but did have 18 yards on 3 catches. Even punter Bryan Anger got in on the action, but failed to pick up any yards on his only attempt. 

They'll take on the Chargers Week 7.


Denard Robinson active for Week 5


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2013) Jaguars running back/wide receiver Denard Robinson is active for the Week 5 game at St. Louis Sunday. He had been limited throughout the week of practice due to a hamstring injury.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2013) Jaguars rookie Denard Robinson was officially changed from a running back to a wide receiver on the roster Thursday, according to The Florida Times-Union. A team spokesman said the NFL requested the Jaguars switch Robinson's roster designation because he can't wear his preferred jersey (No. 16) as a running back.

The fifth-round pick has yet to make a significant impact for Jacksonville. He hasn't been targeted in the passing game and has played just 11 snaps, totaling four carries for minus-1 yard and one fumble.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Jaguars are back in action Week 2 at Oakland.


Jaguars narrowing roles for Denard Robinson


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/2/2013) Jaguars rookie Denard Robinson has seen his roles cut down in training camp according to the Associated Press.

During offseason workouts he played as a running back, quarterback, wideout and also returned kickoffs and punts. But he would drop passes, fumble snaps and not bring in punts. 

In training camp Robinson has been doing on kickoff returns and running as a back and out of the Wildcat formation. 

"We did take less off of him," coach Gus Bradley said. "We've got him more towards kickoff returns, some of the things he's doing offensively. We're taking some things off of his plate to see if that just frees up his mind a little bit more."


Denard Robinson getting time in Wildcat


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/30/2013) The Jaguars used running back Denard Robinson, who played quarterback at the University of Michigan, on three Wildcat plays in practice Monday, reports the Florida Times-Union.

He ran once, handed off to Maurice Jones-Drew and threw a completion to Mike Brown, his first pass of camp.

The report says Robinson struggled with the Wildcat in OTAs, but coach Gus Bradley thinks he has the potential to run it.

"We did it in OTAs and a couple of times he ran the ball and fumbled the ball and he didn't know how to pitch," Bradley said. "We're not going to give up on that."


Denard Robinson viewed as X-factor


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/16/2013) The Jaguars are viewing rookie running back Denard Robinson as an X-factor this season, reports the Florida Times-Union.

Robinson is listed as an OW (offensive weapon) on the Jaguars' website, and his role is expected to grow as he becomes more comfortable at running back.

"Denard made a lot of headway and improvement getting the nuances, terminology and the real intricacies of the position down," Jaguars running backs coach Terry Richardson said. "He knows how to run the football."


Denard Robinson signs rookie deal


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/9/2013) The Jaguars signed 2013 fifth-round draft pick Denard Robinson to a contract, the team announced Tuesday. Robinson, listed as an offensive weapon on the club's roster, is likely to line up at multiple positions, but he continues to work with the running backs in meetings.

"We are excited to get Denard under contract," general manager Dave Caldwell said. "He had a very productive offseason for us and will continue to get better with each practice. He's passionate about football and has been a very good team player."

Added Robinson: "It's a great feeling to sign my first NFL contract. It's something I've been waiting my whole life for and I'm ready to get to camp later this month and get back to work. I was able to get a feel for the NFL game during the offseason and I look forward to getting the pads on and just keep improving with each practice."


Denard Robinson still focused on running back


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/27/2013) Jaguars rookie Denard Robinson has been called an offensive weapon on the team's official website with his position, but it still appears his primary focus is playing running back.

Robinson said he still meets with the team's running backs, but there were indications throughout offseason workouts he will line up in a variety of spots. He played quarterback at Michigan before injuries as a senior moved him to running back, and while preparing for the draft, he worked out at the NFL Scouting Combine and the Senior Bowl as a wide receiver.

Jaguars general manager David Caldwell said earlier in the offseason the hope was to get Robinson 10-to-15 snaps a game. He did not say specifically at what position. And Caldwell also said after the draft that Robinson could be used as a kick returner.

Robinson isn't worried about what his position designation is as he is finding a way to make plays for the Jaguars.

"I am in the running back meeting room, so that's where I’m going to continue to make my plays and just be an offensive weapon -- go to receiver, or go to quarterback, or go to running back and make plays happens," Robinson said. "So, I want to be an offensive weapon."


Denard Robinson listed as 'OW'


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/25/2013) The Jaguars' official team website lists rookie Denard Robinson as an "OW," which likely stands for offensive weapon.

The former college quarterback, who was expected to play receiver when he got to the NFL, was drafted by the Jaguars in the fifth round and called a running back initially.

We consider Robinson a running back, but based on his skill set he will likely line up in the backfield, split out wide and in the slot and see time under center, possibly in the Wildcat.


Robinson to be used in slash role


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/3/2013) NotedSports Illustrated NFL writer Peter King reports that he's hearing the Jags have some very interesting offensive wrinkles set to try with fifth-rounder Denard Robinson. King reports that Robinson could be a Kordell Stewart-slash kind of player.
