  Jaguars | Could feature no-huddle in Week 11    Wed Nov 14, 09:09 AM

The Jacksonville Jaguars featured their no-huddle offense late in their Week 10 loss. During seven of their final eight drives, the Jaguars used the no-huddle. The points didn't come, but it provided a spark. 'You see it; we feel it,' WR Laurent Robinson said. 'We feel confidence in it - we can move the ball, we can throw it around, run it and we're clicking.' The team could use the no-huddle again in Week 11. 'If the coaches choose to go that route, we'll feel confident and comfortable doing it,' Robinson said. Head coach Mike Mularkey said he is not sure about the no-huddle at this point.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars passing game is trying to find a rhythm here. The return of Robinson has helped and perhaps using an up tempo approach will lead to more success as well.

  Jaguars | Laurent Robinson has big game    Fri Nov 9, 01:17 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laurent Robinson had a career-high nine receptions in Week 10 against the Indianapolis Colts, and he also finished with 77 receiving yards in the loss.

  Jaguars | Laurent Robinson should see more playing time     Wed Nov 7, 09:36 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laurent Robinson (concussion) shook off the rust following a concussion by playing 45 snaps in Week 9, and he should see regular playing time in the team's Week 10 game.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Jaguars here. With rookie WR Justin Blackmon struggling to make an impact the team needs a guy like Robinson to get healthy and elevate his game.

  Jaguars | Justin Blackmon not making progress    Wed Oct 24, 12:05 AM

It was expected Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon would see an increase in production with WR Laurent Robinson (concussion) sidelined, but Blackmon made just one catch for seven yards in Week 7 against the Oakland Raiders, a team with the 25th ranked pass defense. Blackmon was targeted just four times. However, head coach Mike Mularkey is pleased with Blackmon's work ethic. 'The last three weeks, he has come out to practice really trying to get better and doing everything we're asking of him,' Mularkey said. 'I saw a lot of good things from him (Sunday). I know he had one catch...but I thought his effort was outstanding.'

Footballguys view: Blackmon is struggling to get open and hasn't earned the trust of QB Blaine Gabbert yet. Don't give up on him in dynasty leagues, but re-draft owners can feel safe letting him go.

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey said WR Laurent Robinson (concussion) still has not passed a concussion test at this point. It appears Robinson will not be able to play Week 7.

Footballguys view: This injury is giving more opportunity for Cecil Shorts to show what he can do on the football field. The former Mount Union player has big play ability and is developing chemistry with QB Blaine Gabbert. He's not a fantasy option unless you play in a deeper league.
