2. Cam Robinson could give the Jaguars a much-needed spark
Losing Cam Robinson to a four-game suspension stung because he's become a leader on the offensive line. While he's not a Pro Bowl-caliber left tackle, he's pretty good in the run blocking department and his feisty attitude sets the tone in the trenches. Doug Pederson, for one, is eager to have the Alabama standout back in the fold.
"Cam brings a level of physicality, he brings some excitement, and enthusiasm to O-line, so we're something we're looking forward to," Pederson said.
The Jaguars couldn't get Robinson back at a much better time, having lost four games in a row. Although they remain in first place in the AFC South, they're at risk of falling behind the Houston Texans and the Indianapolis Colts and missing the playoffs. There are many reasons behind the Jags' recent struggles, but their inability to protect Trevor Lawrence and open lanes in the running game are couple of them.
Robinson's return could improve both areas. Moreover, Jacksonville is getting a leader in the offensive trenches, someone who can push his teammates to execute. During the team's recent four-skid, the offensive line has given up 75 total pressures and the running game has averaged 60 yards per game.
That lack of production starts up front, and if the Jaguars want to finish the season on a strong note, they'll need to improve. Having Cam Robinson back in the fold can most definitely help.
