After playing without injured running back T.J. Yeldon in Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, the Jacksonville Jaguars now find themselves dealing with injuries to their top two backs, as Denard Robinson suffered a sprained left foot in the defeat.
Jacksonville head coach Gus Bradley said he's hopeful Robinson will be able to play next Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. The three-year veteran made his first start of the season in the loss to Atlanta.

"We'll wait and see what happens," Bradley said. "Everything that I have been told is more positive, more arrow up, but we'll wait and see until we find the information."
Robinson carried the ball 14 times for 28 yards against the Falcons and had a pair of fourth-quarter fumbles, but was able to recover both. His injury leaves the Jaguars with just two healthy running backs in Joe Banyard and Jonas Gray, who was signed off the Miami Dolphins practice squad last week.
Bradley said Yeldon, who suffered a sprained MCL in Jacksonville's win against the Indianapolis Colts Dec. 13, is making "great progress," but his status for Sunday's game will be determined later in the week.
