The Jets acquired running back James Robinson from the Jaguars on Monday, hours after the team lost leading rusher Breece Hall for the season.

Robinson, a former 1,000-yard rusher, fortifies the Jets ground game after Hall tore his ACL Sunday against the Broncos for the cost of a conditional sixth-round pick that can be elevated to a fifth-round pick.

Hall had rushed for 463 yards in seven games this season, and became a critical component of Gang Green’s offense.

The Jets traded for James Robinson after Breece Hall’s season-ending ACL injury.

Robinson has run for 340 yards thus far and has also recorded three touchdowns. He will join Michael Carter in a Jets’ backfield that is hoping to stay above league average in terms of rushing yards.
