Jets placed RB Khiry Robinson on injured reserve with a broken leg, ending his season.
Unfathomably, it's Robinson's third broken leg since November 2015, though this time it's in a "different spot." Playing on a one-year, $1.175 million contract, Robinson tallied eight carries in his lone appearance. Turning 27 on Wednesday, it could take a while for Robinson to find a new home in free agency.

In his Jets' debut, Khiry Robinson recorded 22 yards on eight carries Saturday in the Jets' Week 16 loss to the Patriots.

In a play that serves as a perfect metaphor for the Jets’ season, Robinson lost a fumble on his very first carry. He got a handful of garbage-time totes but was never a factor. With Matt Forte a long shot to play next week, Robinson will likely play a change-of-pace role behind Bilal Powell in the Jets’ regular season finale versus Buffalo. It goes without saying that Robinson isn’t a fantasy option.

Jets RB Khiry Robinson (lower leg) remained sidelined Thursday.

It's notable because Robinson could have actually had a role if Matt Forte (knee) sits. As it is, Brandon Wilds is now looking more likely to be the No. 2 or 3, depending on Forte's health.

Jets re-signed RB Khiry Robinson.

Robinson was waived-injured ahead of Week 1, as he wasn't completely recovered from his broken leg. Now healthy, he'll be the No. 3 back behind Matt Forte and Bilal Powell. Brandon Wilds was also elevated from the practice squad.

Jets waived/injured RB Khiry Robinson (leg).

Robinson reportedly re-injured the broken leg which he suffered last November. With Robinson gone, Matt Forte's hold on the short-yardage work appears much more secure. New York also waived CB Dexter McDougle, DB Ronald Martin, and RB Dominique Williams. Troymaine Pope, who had an impressive preseason with the Seahawks, is now the team's No. 3 back.

Jets activated RB Khiry Robinson (leg) off the active/PUP list.

Robinson is finally free to practice 12 days into Jets camp. Gang Green's No. 3 back, Robinson could earn some goal-line looks this season, but will have trouble carving out fantasy relevance unless Matt Forte or Bilal Powell gets hurt.

Jets placed RB Khiry Robinson (leg) on the active/PUP list.

Robinson is still working his way back from a broken leg, but should be considered day-to-day. When healthy, Robinson is expected to compete for some goal-line work. The Jets signed RB Bernard Pierce on Wednesday.

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.

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.

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.

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.
