* The Jacksonville Jaguars are trying to be cautious with wide receiver Laurent Robinson, who has had three concussions this season, according to Big Cat County.
“I just got to be smart with it. I’ve got a long life after football, I’ve got to be smart and I still want to play though so I try and get better as fast as I can and hopefully this week I’m going to be over the hump,” Robinson told reporters on Wednesday. “I don’t want to have another one because I don’t know what I’d do if I did have another one as far as the rest of the season or even after that,” Robinson continued. “I just got to be smart, be cautious and play smart football, and if I see a big hit coming try to get down.”
