Recent Illinois State University graduate and Jacksonville Jaguars starting running back James Robinson has been named National Football League’s Offensive Rookie of the month for September.
The undrafted pickup for the Jacksonville Jaguars has started in all three games for the franchise. Robinson leads the team in scrimmage yards (339), rushing yards (210) and touchdowns (three). He is the first undrafted player in NFL history to post at least 300 scrimmage yards and multiple touchdowns through just three games. His 339 scrimmage yards and 210 rushing yards are both the highest in Jacksonville history through the first three games of the season.
Among fellow rookies, Robinson ranks first in touchdowns, first downs (16) and is tied for the top spot in rushes of at least 10 yards (six).
Robinson’s honor is the second consecutive in the month of September for the Jacksonville Jaguars franchise, as quarterback Gardner Minshew II earned the recognition in September 2019.
Robinson and the Jaguars take the field again to face off against the Cincinnati Bengals at noon Oct. 9.
