New York Jets running back James Robinson was not happy after Sunday’s win over the Chicago Bears after being a healthy scratch, adding that he’s been working «a– off» to make an impact on the field.
Robinson was acquired by the Jets in a trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars in October to complement rookie Zonovan Knight.
«Obviously, I didn’t come here to not play,» Robinson told ESPN on Wednesday. «Obviously, they brought me here for a reason. I don’t expect anything unless I work for it, and I’ve been working my ass off. Not playing bothers me.»

Robinson has managed just 75 yards on 25 carries in three games with the jets, while Knight, who made his NFL debut on Sunday, finished with 69 rushing yards on 14 carries and 34 receiving yards.

«He’s still learning our system,» Jets coach Robert Saleh said of Robinson. «There are still things he’s comfortable with. No one has seen the last of him.»
Saleh added about the backroom of runners: «It’s going to be a week-to-week thing.»

Michael Carter’s lower ankle sprain further complicates the situation after Saleh said Wednesday that Carter will be re-evaluated later in the week with a chance to play in Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings.
