The Jacksonville Jaguars have lost their starting left tackle Cam Robinson due to a torn ACL he suffered in the 31-20 win over New England on Sunday.
The news of a 31-20 victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday was tempered a bit when the Jacksonville Jaguars learned starting left tackle Cam Robinson will miss the remainder of the 2018 season with a torn ACL.
The injury to Robinson is a big blow to the Jaguars roster, however, the play of Wells on Sunday, coupled with the entire offensive line, is one of the reasons the Jaguars beat the Patriots.

Quarterback Blake Bortles threw for 377 yards and four touchdowns. He was not sacked in the game.
The blocking up front allowed the offense to amass 481 yards on Sunday. Wells figures to be in the starting lineup when the Jaguars host the Tennessee Titans next Sunday at TIAA Bank Field.
The 6-foot-6, 320-pound Robinson started 15 games as a rookie last season. The injury also creates a roster space for the team to work with. Will the Jaguars bring in another offensive lineman, bring an existing player up from the practice squad, or target someone to help another area of need?
The Jaguars promoted running back Brandon Wilds from the practice squad prior to the game on Sunday for depth at running back. There is currently one spot on the Jaguars practice squad. The team cut wide receiver Rashad Greene to make room for Wilds.
In Robinson’s rookie season, the offensive line helped the running game lead the league in yards per game and also gave up on 24 quarterback sacks, the fewest in Bortles career. The offensive line has given up only one sack this season.
