Khiry Robinson Comes Off Active/PUP List

Jets' Fifth-Year RB Is Eligible to Return to Action After Rehabbing Leg Injury


Updated, 6:35 p.m. ET

Jets running back Khiry Robinson, who began training camp on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list with a leg injury he had been rehabbing, has been activated and is eligible to return to practice.

Robinson in fact did work in individual drills today before he went inside to continue his rehab, which was all a part of the plan, said head coach Todd Bowles.

As for whether or not he'll be available for Thursday night's preseason opener vs. Jacksonville, Bowles said, "We're going to look at him some more and see how he's feeling, see if he has any soreness, and we'll make a gametime decision."

Robinson (6'0", 220) was signed by New Orleans as a free agent out of West Texas A&M after a successful tryout at the Saints' rookie minicamp after the 2013 draft.

He played in 28 games (three starts) over the past three seasons with the Saints with 186 carries for 766 yards (4.1 yards/carry) and eight touchdowns and 25 receptions for 178 yards (7.1 yards/catch). He was on track for his best pro season last year before he suffered a tibia fracture in Week 8 vs. the Giants and was placed on injured reserve.

Robinson can join Bilal Powell, Romar Morris and Dominique Williams in the Jets backfield, which had been thinned due to injuries to Matt Forte (hamstring), Bernard Pierce (hamstring).
