Jets Release RB Khiry Robinson

New, comments

Not the exciting news that you want, but it's news none the less.

NFL: Preaseason-New York Jets at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Jets announced this afternoon that they have released running back Khiry Robinson

This is expected if not exciting. Unfortunately for Robinson, he just can't seen to escape the injury bug. After going undrafted, he signed on with the Saints.

He suffered a tibia fracture in 2015. Then signed with the Jets before the 2016 season. He reinjured his leg in the pre-season and was cut by the Jets in September. After focusing on rehab, he signed back on with the Jets in December, only to again...injure his leg.

All in all Robinson had 8 rushes with the Jets for 22 yards appearing in one regular season game.

Despite all of this, Robinson is staying optimistic. He tweeted "Ima Bounce Back" on hearing the news.
