Report: Jets trading for Jaguars RB James Robinson after Breece Hall injury

Oct 25, 2022

The New York Jets are not standing pat after losing Breece Hall to injury.

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, they've reached a deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars to acquire running back James Robinson. Per the report, the Jaguars will receive in return a conditional 6th-round pick that can become a 5th-round selection.

Robinson, 24, was Jacksonville's starting running back the previous two seasons after joining the team as an undrafted rookie in 2020. He remained a regular part of the Jaguars offense this season, but ceded carries to 2021 first-round pick Travis Etienne. Etienne missed his entire rookie season with a foot injury, but has thrived in 2022 while playing alongside quarterback Trevor Lawrence, his college teammate at Clemson.

Through seven games, Etienne's tallied 415 yards and a touchdown on 6.1 yards per carry in addition to 14 catches for 151 yards. He's now in line for a featured role in Jacksonville's backfield.
