Jets' Khiry Robinson: Expected back during training camp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Robinson (leg) will return "hopefully sometime in training camp," per head coach Todd Bowles.

Robinson was carted off the field during the Saints' Week 8 victory over the Giants and eventually diagnosed with a broken tibia, failing to play another snap the rest of the season. Though no reason was given for his inability to practice this week, it's almost certainly related to this season-ending injury to his leg. Nonetheless, the former West Texas A&M stud could use all the time he can get in front his new employer if he wants a role in offensive coordinator Chan Gailey's revamped offense this season, where he joins Matt Forte and Bilal Powell in a new-look running back corps. Forte figures to handle the bulk of the early-down work, with Powell deployed in pass-catching situations. Robinson, however, is most reminiscent of the Jets' 2015 leading rusher (Chris Ivory) and excels where his current counterparts disappoint, namely, the red zone and short-yardage scenarios. That alone should afford him a role in some capacity during the 2016 campaign. What's more, Robinson was given a one-year, $1.175 million contract, versus Forte's three-year, $12 million deal and Powell's comparable three-year, $11.25 million deal, giving Gailey incentive to pound him between the tackles while he still can in an effort to preserve Forte's 30-year-old body.
