Jacksonville Jaguars fans were riding high after Sunday's dominant win against the Houston Texans, but lost in the celebrations over the win and the worries about hurricane Irma back home was an injury to a significant player.

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.

Marqise Lee and Allen Hurns will step into the role of being the Jaguars' top two receivers. He caught 64 passes for 1,031 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2015. 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.

That means the Jaguars are likely in the market for another receiver, but there aren't many options available. Robinson may not be recovered from the injury by the time the team returns for training camp next offseason.

Robinson led the Jaguars in receptions (73), receiving yards (883) and receiving touchdowns (six) last season.

He was ruled out for the rest of the game and the fear is he tore the ACL in his left knee, according to National Football League medical analyst for SiriusXM and the San Diego Union-Tribune Dr. David J. Chao.

The Jaguars only have one wide receiver on the practice squad.

Other free agent receivers available include Vincent Jackson (who is now a restauranteur in St. Petersburg, Florida), Eddie Royal and Stevie Johnson. He was entering the final year of his rookie contract and the sides did have preliminary discussions before the season began but that's obviously on hold now.
