Report: Jaguars LT Cam Robinson Facing Multi-Game PED Suspension
Bad news for the Jacksonville Jaguars this morning as reports are that they will be without their starting left tackle Cam Robinson to start the 2023 season. ESPN’s Adam Schefter and SI’s John Shipley reported that Robinson is facing a “multi-game suspension for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy.”
According to John Shipley’s report at SI’s Jaguar Report, Robinson will be suspended “an undisclosed amount of games,” so the exact length is unknown at this point.
After suffering a torn meniscus, Robinson missed the final five games of the 2022 NFL season. Jaguars rookie Walker Little started in Robinson’s place down the stretch in 2022 and will likely open the season doing so in the wake of this morning’s news.
When asked if Robinson would be ready for the start of training camp, Jacksonville GM Trent Baalke replied, “From a health standpoint, yes.” So, maybe Baalke and the Jaguars have known about the impending suspension for a while.
Either way, it’s bad news for the Jaguars on the morning of the start of the NFL Draft. Jacksonville signed Robinson to a three-year extension worth a maximum of $54 million with $33 million guaranteed.
I have The Jaguars taking Northwestern offensive lineman Peter Skoronski at No. 24 in my mock draft filed on Wednesday afternoon. This morning’s news makes that pick even more likely. Skoronski can play at tackle while Robinson is out and slide inside or flip to the right side when he returns. His versatility makes him ideal for a role such as the one created by the Cam Robinson suspension.
