Breece Hall is out for the season after suffering a torn ACL in the Jets’ Week 7 win over the Broncos. One day later, New York has found a big-name replacement for its star running back, acquiring James Robinson from the Jaguars in exchange for draft-pick compensation, according to NFL Media. Robinson made a speedy return from his own serious injury to open 2022 in Jacksonville’s backfield, but Travis Etienne Jr. has increasingly emerged as the Jaguars’ lead ball-carrier in recent weeks.
The Jets are sending a conditional sixth-round pick to the Jaguars in exchange for Robinson, per ESPN. That pick can become a fifth depending on Robinson’s performance as New York’s new RB1. Michael Carter was previously slated to take over as the Jets’ top back after Hall was carted off Sunday’s win and quickly ruled out.
