JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Even during a bye week, the Jacksonville Jaguars can’t stop losing.

The Jaguars announced Tuesday that rookie wide receiver Allen Robinson, who was leading them with 48 catches, will be lost for the remainder of the season because of a stress fracture in his right foot. The injury occurred Sunday during the Dallas Cowboys’ 31-17 victory over the Jaguars in London, although coach Gus Bradley said he could not recall exactly when or how Robinson got hurt.

Robinson played 65 of a possible 71 offensive plays against the Cowboys and caught five passes for 60 yards. He had been one of the few bright spots on a team which has a 1-9 record for the third year in a row.

Robinson’s injury will mean an increase in playing time for another second-round draft pick, Marqise Lee. The Jaguars drafted Lee ahead of Robinson, but has only 13 receptions and no touchdowns since the start of the regular season.

There was some good news on the health front. Bradley said tight end Marcedes Lewis will "definitely" be ready for the Jaguars’ next game Nov. 23 at Indianapolis, which would be Lewis’ first game since suffering a high ankle sprain in September. And rookie cornerback Aaron Colvin will be activated Tuesday from the reserve/non-football injury list.
