Jets RB James Robinson (knee) questionable vs. Bills

New York Jets running back James Robinson was added to the injury report as questionable to play in Sunday’s game against the visiting Buffalo Bills.

Robinson, who is nursing a knee injury, had five carries for 17 yards against the New England Patriots last Sunday in his first game since being acquired from the Jacksonville Jaguars prior to the NFL trade deadline. The Patriots won 22-17.

That trade came about on the heels of rookie Breece Hall’s season-ending ACL and meniscus injury in New York’s 16-9 win over the Denver Broncos on Oct. 23. Hall was having a breakout rookie season for the Jets, rushing for 463 yards and four touchdowns on 80 carries in seven games (two starts). He also had a receiving touchdown.

Michael Carter likely will receive a larger workload should Robinson be unable to play on Sunday in East Rutherford, N.J.

Robinson, 24, has 86 carries for 357 yards and three rushing touchdowns in eight games this season.

He has 490 carries for 2,194 yards and 18 touchdowns in 36 career games with the Jaguars and Jets. He also has caught 89 passes for 612 yards and four touchdowns.

Jets brace for worst on RB Breece Hall (knee)

The New York Jets are bracing for MRI results Monday to confirm their fears that rookie running back Breece Hall has suffered a season-ending ACL injury.

Jets coach Robert Saleh said after Sunday’s game that “the initial diagnosis was not good.” The Jets defeated the Denver Broncos 16-9 to improve to 5-2.

However, Hall left in the second quarter after landing awkwardly while getting tackled. He had already scored on a 62-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. He finished with 72 yards rushing before leaving.

Hall took to social media postgame but didn’t discuss his injury.

“Resilient,” he wrote. “Through all the trials and tribulations JETS WIN!!!!”

Jets right tackle Alijah Vera-Tucker (elbow) and wide receiver Corey Davis (knee) also left Sunday’s game with injuries. Both are also getting MRIs on Monday.

Hall started the past two games for the Jets. His 681 yards from scrimmage are the fourth most ever by a Jets player over the first seven games of the season, per ESPN. He has five touchdowns on the season, four rushing.

Michael Carter, who started the first five games this season, rushed 13 times for 29 yards against the Broncos. He has 228 yards rushing and two touchdowns on the season. He led the Jets in rushing in 2021.

Ty Johnson is the team’s third running back on the roster.

Iowa State star RB Breece Hall declares for NFL draft

Iowa State two-time All-American running back Breece Hall announced Saturday that he is entering the NFL draft and skipping the school’s Cheez-It Bowl contest against Clemson.

Hall rushed for 3,941 yards and a school-record 50 touchdowns in three seasons with the Cyclones. He also set a school mark with 56 total touchdowns and set an NCAA record by scoring at least one rushing TD in 24 straight games.

Hall rushed for 1,472 yards and 20 touchdowns this season. He added 36 receptions for 302 yards and three scores and was named Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year for the second straight season.

“Playing for Iowa State has been nothing short of a gift,” Hall wrote in an Instagram post. “The last three years, this team has defined five-star culture and I could not be more grateful to be a part of that. …

“After much praying and discussion with loved ones, I have decided to forgo my remaining eligibility and enter the 2022 NFL Draft. While this decision has not been easy, playing in the NFL has been a lifelong dream of mine.”

Hall is expected to be the first running back drafted.

Hall’s 3,941 career yards are second in Iowa State history behind Troy Davis, who gained 4,382 yards from 1994-96. Davis was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2016.

The Cyclones (7-5) play No. 19 Clemson (9-3) on Dec. 29 in Orlando, Fla.
