Jaguars' Laurent Robinson suffers concussion

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laurent Robinson suffered a concussion against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. It was the third concussion he has suffered this season, and it will likely prevent him from playing against the Chicago Bears in Week 5.

Robinson has nine receptions for 134 yards and no touchdowns through the first four games of 2012. As a member of the Dallas Cowboys in 2011, he finished with 54 catches for 858 yards and 11 touchdowns. He hasn't had the impact for Jacksonville that the team had hoped, but the string of head injuries has hindered his progress.

Robinson finished Sunday's game with one reception for 19 yards. The Jaguars managed just 212 yards of total offense in the 27-10 loss to Cincinnati, and they must rebound against the Bears in order to avoid a 1-4 start to the season. Jacksonville is off in Week 6, which will give Robinson more recovery time if he needs it.


Jags' 0-4 start raising many concerns

27-10 loss to the Bengals warrants changes

The 27-10 loss to the Bengals was far from Blaine Gabbert's fault, as the second-year quarterback actually completed a higher percentage of passes than he ever has since assuming the starting role for the team early in the 2011 season.

Rashean Mathis and the Jaguars defense struggled to stop A.J. Green and the Bengals running offense, and an offensive line that was supposed to be solved with the return of Eben Britton and Cameron Bradfield looked far from satisfactory. Yet, neither of those excuse the fact that Gabbert continued to show the same problems that caused him to have a truly horrific rookie season.

Is it time for Gabbert to get yanked from the starting lineup? No, that would solve nothing. But, it's clear that there are serious things wrong with the franchise and, unless things change dramatically before the season ends, that changes will have to be made.

Not minor changes like signing a wide receiver in free agency and trading up in the NFL draft to take another, but dramatic, sweeping changes like firing general manager Gene Smith and moving on without Gabbert.

Changes have to be made and those are the two changes that would most dramatically influence an offense that only managed 10 points against a Bengals offense that ranked No. 29 in the NFL entering Sunday. Neither will be made immediately and so Gabbert has a chance to show he should still be the Jaguars quarterback beginning with a game against the Bears in Week 5, but time is running out.

The simple reality is that an offensive performance like that against a defense like the Bengals is sure to warrant changes.


Cincy trounces Jacksonville 27-10

The Cincinnati Bengals held the Jacksonville Jaguars to just one touchdown in a 27-10 victory Sunday.


Jaguars trail 17-10 after three quarters

After a poor end to the first half, things didn't look good for the Jaguars to start the second half. However, a Bengals fumble on the goal line, followed by a long Jaguars drive that ended in a field goal cut the score to 17-10.

On the opening possession of the second half, the Bengals looked like they were continuing on their offensive momentum that gave them back-to-back touchdowns in the first half and a 10-point lead. However, after several tremendous plays by A.J. Green, a BenJarvus Green-Ellis fumble on the goal line gave the Jaguars the ball back.

The Jaguars drove the ball 77 yards on the subsequent drive thanks to several short passes on the 14-play drive to Justin Blackmon, but a pass to Kevin Elliott came up a yard short of a first down inside the Jaguars five yard line and they settled for a 21-yard Josh Scobee field goal to cut the Bengals lead to seven.

The Bengals will begin the fourth quarter with the ball deep in Jaguars territory.


Bengals Vs. Jaguars inactives

Cornerback depth is going to be a serious concern for the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday as they will face the Jaguars with just three active cornerbacks. Leon Hall, Nate Clements, Dre Kirkpatrick and Jason Allen are all inactive for Cincinnati, leaving just Terrance Newman, Adam Jones and Chris Lewis-Harris. The Bengals signed Lewis-Harris off the practice squad on Saturday.

Dre Kirkpatrick remains out with a knee injury while Clements will miss Sunday's game with a calf injury. Hall is out with a hamstring injury and Allen is out with a thigh injury. In addition to those four, Cincinnati will also be without backup running back Bernard Scott who is out with an ankle injury.

The Jaguars got some good news with starting right tackle Cameron Bradfield and backup running back Rashad Jennings both active. Bradfield and Jennings each missed the last two games due to injuries. Defensively, Jacksonville will once again be without starting linebacker Daryl Smith who remains out with a groin injury. Smith is yet to play in the regular season and will be replaced by Kyle Bosworth.
