Jags' Robinson, Cards' Johnson among those injured in Week 1

The Jaguars (1-0) will stay in Houston Sunday night and hope to return to Jacksonville on Monday weather permitting. The Texans were thoroughly outplayed in all facets of the game and suffered one of the worst losses in franchise history. As underrated as Telvin Smith is with the Jaguars, Whitney Mercilus is nearly an afterthought with the Texans.

Robinson was injured on his first (and likely only) reception of the season, which was a 17-yard gain. Rookie Leonard Fournette saw limited action during the preseason due to a foot injury but appears 100 percent for the opener.

Bortles, on shaky ground as the incumbent under center, passed for 125 yards and a touchdown while avoiding the critical mistakes that have undermined his development. For the Texans, it's a chance to show that O'Brien has made the right call at quarterback.

And that's not all.

Fournette prospered from an offensive line that was also maligned and considered one of the team's weak points. "The way they put this team on their backs and kept us going ..." I suspect Bortles will get to know both guys very well before the day is done. "That's what we did".

"It's tough because he's playing lights-out, and I want him to be a part of this party we're about to have on this field, " Brandon Graham said. "He's a special player".

Robinson led the Jaguars in receptions (73), receiving yards (883) and receiving touchdowns (six) last season. That honored group will have select roles during Sunday's game, such as Texas flag holders, Color Guard and coin toss captains. And who could blame them? And Bills cornerback E.J. Gaines did not return after hurting his left shoulder while assisting Lorenzo White in tackling Bilal Powell on an 11-yard run midway through the fourth quarter.

Watt received a standing ovation from the NRG Crowd when he ran through the tunnel before kickoff.

That's because Bortles - who didn't win the first-string job as much as backup Chad Henne failed to capture it - and his teammates kept their composure by driving 51 yards for a Jason Myers field goal.

"I'm still learning, not flawless, going over the film with those guys and understanding how to study the game", he said. "I visualize it. I try to get the players to visualize it and teach them".
