The Jacksonville Jaguars could have had an explosive backfield tandem last season.
James Robinson had 767 yards and eight touchdowns for the Jaguars, and Travis Etienne showed promise after a successful college career at Clemson.
Aside from winning the CFP National Championship with the Jaguars, he was also a two-time ACC Player of the Year and a two-time Consensus All-American.
He finished his collegiate career with 4,952 rushing yards and scored a touchdown in 46 of his 55 games played.
However, his NFL career had a roadblock when he suffered a season-ending Lisfranc injury.
Etienne would have to wait a year before taking the field for Jacksonville and he’s ready to make up for lost time.
Coach Pederson says RB Travis Etienne has been cleared for everything as we get ready for day one of OTAs

Jaguars team reporter Ashlyn Sullivan tweeted, “Coach Pederson says RB Travis Etienne has been cleared for everything as we get ready for day one of OTAs.”
Having Etienne and Robinson gives Jacksonville a one-two punch that will help them gain yards from the ground.
The Jaguars are in for a treat if the former Tiger can bring his college game to the pros.
His speed is something that defensive linemen couldn’t handle.
Getting Their Weapons On Offense In Place
Having Etienne back is a good sign for a Jaguars team that brought in several weapons on offense.
The Jaguars are also banking on tight end Evan Engram to be an asset in both blocking and pass offense.
He will help repel pass rushes together with left tackle Cam Robinson who will block Lawrence’s blind side.
