Jets RB James Robinson Upset With Team

Written by Tony Ghaul

The New York Jets made RB James Robinson a healthy scratch for last Sunday’s win over the Bears.

Robinson was traded to the Jets late last month after Breece Hall tore his ACL and he appeared in three games for the team before being designated inactive last game. Robinson ran 25 times for 75 yards and caught two passes for five yards and a touchdown.

Robinson said that “obviously, I was upset about” not playing and that he doesn’t know what the team’s plans for him are moving forward. “Obviously, I didn’t come here not to play,” Robinson said, via Rich Cimini of ESPN.com. “Obviously, they brought me here for a reason. I don’t expect anything unless I work for it, and I’ve been working my ass off. Me not playing pisses me off.”

Head Coach Robert Saleh replaced Robinson with rookie Zonovan Knight, who had 103 yards from scrimmage in his debut, a 31-10 win over the Chicago Bears.

Robinson could be inactive again Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium. It could depend on Michael Carter, who missed practice Wednesday with a sprained ankle.
