Football: UL’s Robinson still healthy after dominant return from injury

After undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery less than a month ago and missing two-and-a-half-games, UL senior wideout Jamal Robinson had eight catches for 119 yards and two touchdowns in a 34-31 win over Georgia State last Saturday night.

Robinson, UL’s No. 8 all-time receiver by game’s end, did as much as he did without the knee proving problematic whatsoever.

"(He) continues to look strong in practice," Ragin’ Cajuns coach Mark Hudspeth said Thursday. "No residual effects from after the game, taking the hits and running so much on it.

"He probably went a few too many plays (more) than we would have liked," Hudspeth added, "but he was just being so productive on the field it was hard to find a spot not to utilize him."

Robinson’s final catch of the night proved to be the game-winner against GSU, making the Cajuns 2-3 overall and 1-0 in Sun Belt Conference play as they prepare to visiting Texas State in another SBC game Tuesday night.

UL starting quarterback Terrance Broadway, meanwhile, threw the winning pass to Robinson.

But Broadway missed much of UL’s final series against Georgia State due to leg cramps.

He’s been practicing this week with no problems either.

"He did well in the heat and didn’t have an issue," Hudspeth said.
