Friday update: Robinson practiced again on Friday and is listed as questionable. He is trending toward playing against the Rams.
Thursday update: Good news, as Robinson did end up getting a limited practice in on Thursday. That makes two limited practices this week. Hopefully he can get in a full practice on Friday, but he appears likely to play.
Jacksonville Jaguars starting running back James Robinson was able to get in a limited practice on Wednesday, but wasn’t at the start of practice on Thursday, per Mark Long.

Robinson has been dealing with knee and heel issues, but has been able to play through them of late. We should learn more about the nature of his missed practice, but we need to start preparing for Robinson to miss this game if he had any kind of setback on either of his injuries.
Fantasy football implications
Robinson is a good running back who can put up useful fantasy numbers even on a bad team in a tough matchup, so if he can go this week, he remains a start in most leagues. If he can’t go, Carlos Hyde would get the lead role against the Rams. He won’t have as much upside as Robinson, but would see enough touches to be in flex consideration.
