Allen Robinson’s fourth season in the NFL ended the same day it started.
The former Penn State wide receiver tore his left ACL in the Jacksonville Jaguars’ season opener against the Houston Texans on Sunday. The team announced the news Sunday night.

While there’s no official word from the Jaguars or certainty on what the injury is, a “significant” knee injury likely means most, if not all, of Robinson’s 2017 season is over.
The former Penn State star had 2,831 receiving yards and 22 touchdowns in his first three NFL seasons.
