ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini speculates Khiry Robinson could be the short-yardage and goal-line back.

Still recovering from a broken leg, Robinson will need to get healthy first, but there is no reason he cannot push for a role. Matt Forte has not been an effective short-yardage back throughout his career, and Bilal Powell does not fit the profile of a power back either. Robinson has converted 7-of-13 career attempts inside the 10 into touchdowns, a rate which is well above league average. It would not be surprising if he won the short-yardage job in camp.

Khiry Robinson (leg) is expected to be ready for training camp.

Robinson is still recovering his 2015 broken leg. He’ll be in the mix for a short-yardage role behind Matt Forte when healthy. Zac Stacy (ankle) is also expected to be ready for camp.

NJ Advance Media's Darryl Slater said Jets RB Khiry Robinson "could" take on some short-yardage work.

Slater is not making a definitive statement on what Robinson's role will be, but it would make sense for the Jets to use him in short-yardage situations. Matt Forte has never been good near the goal line, and Bilal Powell does not fit the mold of a power back. Robinson does, and it would not be surprising if he saw most of his work around the end zone. He is a real threat to Forte's touchdown total.
May 21 - 9:46 AM

Khiry Robinson's one-year deal with the Jets is worth $1.175 million with $80,000 guaranteed.

The Jets are paying Robinson like a third-stringer and that figures to be his role behind early-down workhorse Matt Forte and passing-down specialist Bilal Powell. Robinson gives New York some depth but he's not going to have a big fantasy impact. The Jets will probably cut Zac Stacy at some point now that Robinson is on board.

Jets signed RB Khiry Robinson, formerly of the Saints.

Robinson recorded 295 yards and four TDs on 73 touches last year before sitting out the last eight games with a broken leg. He'll join a crowded Jets backfield that includes ex-Bear Matt Forte, Bilal Powell and Zac Stacy. Robinson could serve as a situational grinder back while Forte and Powell dominate passing-down work. It's not a great spot for Robinson's fantasy value.
Mar 10 - 12:48 PM

The Saints are not expected to extend a tender to restricted free agent Khiry Robinson.

It'll send Robinson to the open market. Robinson is recovering from a broken tibia, but resumed football activities two weeks ago and should draw interest as a No. 2 back. He is functional in the passing game and has averaged a passable 4.12 YPC on 186 career rushing attempts. Robinson turned 26 in December.

Restricted free agent Khiry Robinson (leg) has resumed football activities.

Robinson hasn’t had any setbacks from his broken leg. He’s on track to be ready for OTAs. Robinson should get tendered at the second-round level.
Feb 20 - 7:21 PM

Restricted free agent Khiry Robinson (leg) has been cleared for light jogging.

It’s the first update on Robinson since he went on I.R. with a broken right tibia in early November. There haven’t been any setbacks in his recovery. As a restricted free agent, Robinson should be tendered at the second-round level.
Feb 3 - 6:04 PM

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett believes the emergence of Tim Hightower could affect how the team values Khiry Robinson.

Both are impending free agents, but Robinson is of the restricted variety. The Saints will likely need to offer Robinson a second-round tender to ensure he stays with the team, but that will cost somewhere around $2.5 million. Hightower would be cheaper, but he is also soon-to-be 30 and spent three seasons out of the league. If the choice comes down to Robinson or Hightower, the Saints should easily choose Robinson.

Saints RB Khiry Robinson has been diagnosed with a broken right tibia, and is done for the season.

He underwent surgery on Sunday evening, and will be placed on injured reserve. Robinson was averaging over nine touches per game, but the Saints can withstand his loss as long as Mark Ingram and C.J. Spiller stay healthy. That's always been easier said than done, of course. Two months shy of his 26th birthday, Robinson is headed for restricted free agency. Big and fairly versatile, we'd expect the Saints to tender an offer.

Khiry Robinson was carted off the field with a right leg injury in New Orleans' Week 8 game against the Giants.

Robinson almost certainly broke his leg. He was taken to the hospital at halftime. The change-up back got buried at the bottom of a pile. He was fitted for an air-cast on the field before being carted to the locker room. Robinson had four carries for four yards before going down, adding two receptions for 13 yards. His loss means Mark Ingram won't be getting as many breathers.

Khiry Robinson rushed 14 times for 28 yards and two touchdowns in New Orleans' Week 7 win over the Colts.

He added a three-yard reception. For reasons unknown, Robinson stole a first quarter series from Mark Ingram, but couldn't do anything with it. Ingram received as many carries as Robinson, but registered 115 more yards. Robinson's vultured scores were some of the more absurd in recent memory. Robinson typically receives 5-7 weekly touches. He isn't on the FLEX radar.
Sun, Oct 25, 2015 06:32:00 PM

Khiry Robinson rushed seven times for 23 yards in New Orleans' Week 6 win over the Falcons, adding two receptions for an additional 24 yards.

Robinson out-snapped, out-touched and out-produced C.J. Spiller behind Mark Ingram, but still did nothing to warrant a longer look in fantasy leagues. He can be safely left on the waiver wire.
Fri, Oct 16, 2015 12:27:00 AM

Khiry Robinson rushed five times for 30 yards and caught 2-of-2 targets for two yards Week 5 against the Eagles.

Robinson is a good bet to see 6-10 touches weekly, but that workload is not enough to make him a viable fantasy option. He is nothing more than a handcuff for Mark Ingram.
