Jaguars placing Robinson on injured reserve with foot sprain

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The Jacksonville Jaguars are placing running back Denard Robinson on injured reserve with a mid-foot sprain.

Robinson hurt his right foot early in Sunday's loss against Houston, but stayed in the game. It was still bothering him Wednesday, and tests revealed an injury that takes six to eight weeks to heal.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley says Toby Gerhart, who opened the season as the starter before getting supplanted by Robinson, likely will start Sunday at Baltimore. Rookie Storm Johnson also is expected to get back in the mix. A seventh-round draft pick from UCF, Johnson has been inactive the last six games.

Robinson finishes the season with 582 yards rushing and four touchdowns. Gerhart has 211 yards on the ground and a touchdown.
