A person familiar with the situation said that Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Allen Robinson is out for the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the season opener.
The injury occurred on the third play from scrimmage.
It's hard to fault Robinson for his drop in production since quarterback Blake Bortles threw for 523 fewer yards and 12 fewer touchdowns than he did in 2015. He was unable to walk to the sideline and was immediately attended to by the Jaguars' medical staff before walking off the field to the locker room.
After a 1,400-yard, 14-touchdown season in 2015, Robinson cooled down a year ago at Jacksonville quarterback Blake Bortles struggled.

While Mourinho could not comment on the severity of the midfielder's injury, he is certain that it is a hamstring injury. His replacement, Marouane Fellaini , scored soon after being introduced.
Finding a strong second option among Jacksonville's receiving corps to replace Robinson on your fantasy team is tricky. Sure his Jaguars blew out the Houston Texans in an impressive manner on Sunday, but Robinson was not a part of it.
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.
