News: Offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch indicated that both Robinson and Toby Gerhart (ankle) can be part of the Week 8 game-plan against the Dolphins, the Florida Times Union reports. Gerhart, who opened the season as the starting running back, was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. "I think we'll continue to mix and match a little bit," Fisch said. "I don't know exactly how that will all play out yet." Impact: Head coach Gus Bradley said Gerhart looked good Wednesday, suggesting he'll be available Sunday for the first time in three games. Gerhart has been limited by the ankle since opening week, which may have contributed to his disappointing numbers (48 carries, 123 yards, 2.6 YPC). So, after Robinson ran wild in last week's win over Cleveland, it's quite natural to wonder about the Jaguars' depth chart at running back.(RotoWire, )

News: Robinson electrified the fantasy world Sunday. Impact: Robinson ran for a career-high 127 yards and a touchdown. "The last time I carried the ball 20 times I was in college," said Robinson, a star quarterback at Michigan. "It's a great feeling. We knew it was coming. We've just got to stack them and up and get back to work."(STATS, 3:36pm)

News: Robinson had 22 carries for 127 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Browns. Impact: With Toby Gerhart still sidelined with a foot injury, Robinson was given the start, and he produced right away, accumulating 62 yards in the first quarter alone. While he was expected to split touches with Storm Johnson, who had a touchdown last Sunday against the Titans, the latter finished with only six carries for 16 yards, though he did score a three-yard touchdown with less than five minutes left to put the Jags up 24-6. Gerhart is hoping to return in Week 8 against the Dolphins, though after Sunday's performance, it wouldn't be surprising if Robinson continued to get a fair number of touches.(RotoWire, )

News: Robinson is listed as the starting running back for Sunday's game against the Browns. Impact: Robinson received half as many carries as Storm Johnson in last week's game against the Titans, but will draw the starting nod Sunday afternoon against the Browns. Although he was given less opportunities last week, Robinson had a YPC of 4.4 compared to Johnson's mark of 2.1. The two backs split reps in practice all week, but Robinson now appears to have a slight upper hand. Look for both backs to split time, with Jordan Todman also a candidate to see snaps on third down. A timeshare should continue to be expected, until a hot hand emerges.(RotoWire, )

News: With Toby Gerhart still out, Robinson is once again a candidate to see expanded duties in Sunday's game against the Browns, the Florida Times-Union reports. Impact: Per the report, coach Gus Bradley relays that Storm Johnson and Robinson are in line to split first- and second-down snaps on Sunday, with Jordan Todman likely handling the team's third-down duties. In such a scenario, we'd expect that Johnson is the top candidate to lead the team in carries, as he did last weekend, making Robinson a Week 7 lottery ticket.(RotoWire, )

News: Robinson split first-team reps with Storm Johnson during Thursday's practice, the Florida Times-Union reports. Impact: Toby Gerhart (foot) continues to be sidelined, propelling Robinson to the top of the depth chart alongside Johnson. In Gerhart's absence last week, Robinson carried the ball five times for 22 yards and caught three passes for 14 yards. Should Gerhart sit out again, Robinson will likely see a similar workload, as he Johnson and Jordan Todman figure to split snaps in the backfield.(RotoWire, )

News: Robinson rushed for 22 yards on five carries in Sunday's loss to the Titans. Impact: Though Storm Johnson technically got the start Sunday, Robinson benefitted from the absence of Toby Gerhart, seeing a few extra snaps in the backfield. As has been the case for all of Jacksonville's backs this season, Robinson wasn't able to gain much traction, with his longest rush going for just six yards. Robinson did, however, catch all three passes thrown his way for a total of 14 yards.(RotoWire, )
