Friday update: Robinson practiced again on Friday, but will likely be a game-time decision.
This morning, Urban Meyer said James Robinson is day to day. “He’ll go today, we’re just being real cautious with him but he feels pretty good.”— Jordan de Lugo (@jordandelugo) November 19, 2021
Thursday pre-practice update: James Robinson was spotted on the practice field on Thursday and is expected to get in a limited workout, per Mark Long. This bodes well for his chances of playing on Sunday against the 49ers.
Jacksonville Jaguars running back James Robinson didn’t practice on Wednesday with a knee injury. Robinson was dealing with a heel injury the last couple weeks, but the knee is new. The good news is that it doesn’t sound like something that will keep him out this week if NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is correct.

Robinson continues to play well when healthy, as he’s averaging 5.4 yards per carry and has six rushing touchdowns on a two-win team. Carlos Hyde is his backup and would receiver the bulk of the work like when he saw 22 touches when Robinson was out two weeks ago.
Fantasy football implications
The Jaguars face a 49ers defense that played great against the Rams, but awful the week before against the Cardinals. They are giving up just 3.88 yards per carry to running backs, but do rank 19th in PPR points allowed to running backs this season. Robinson remains a must start anytime he is healthy though.
