No position group on any team in training camp has taken a bigger hit than the Jaguars' receiving corps.

The latest Jaguars wideout to receive some bad news is Allen Robinson, who will be sidelined for the next two weeks due to a hamstring injury, according to the Florida Times-Union. A rookie out of Penn State, Robinson needs these early reps to establish a rhythm and rapport with quarterback Chad Henne.

The Jaguars have also had injuries affect receivers Cecil Shorts and Tandon Doss. Justin Blackmon's indefinite suspension will likely remain indefinite due to a recent marijuana arrest and Ace Sanders is suspended for the first two games.

The lone healthy and available-for-week-one receiver at the moment is rookie Marqise Lee, who has reportedly had a fine start to training camp.

Robinson's injury will cost him some valuable reps but he should still be able to get plenty of preseason game action. With the other issues surrounding the receivers, Lee and Robinson could be heavily counted on when the Jaguars open the season.
