The sheep run back Cam Akers quickly returned from a torn Achilles to play for the team in the postseason in January and February, but recovery times of less than six months are not met by every runner.
James Robinson is an example of a more traditional approach to rehabilitation after an Achilles tendon injury. Robinson tore his Achilles in week 16 last season and it was recently reported from Jacksonville that the Jaguars don’t expect him to be ready for training camp starting next month.
This is not a prediction that Robinson will refute in the coming weeks.
“When I’m ready, I’ll be ready,” Robinson said via John Reid belonging Florida Times Union. “I just let my body recover from it. I don’t trying to rush something. I just stayed focused and tried not to get too upset about it. I knew that I could return from there. I was just trying to be strong in spirit.”
Travis Etienne and newbie Snoop Conner it looks like he’ll be the Jaguars’ best defenseman until Robinson is cleared for a full return, and questions about when the veteran can join them will likely be up for debate until training camp begins.
