JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Cam Robinson cleared one hurdle in his attempt to return to the field for the Jaguars. 

The left tackle was removed from the physically unable to perform list on Monday and will participate in a walkthrough with the team and individual drills, coach Doug Marrone said. 

Robinson, entering his third season, suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in last year's 31-20 win over New England. He'd been slow in making his return and Marrone said last week that he expected both Robinson and receiver Marqise Lee to be unavailable for the start of the season. 

Lee suffered a major knee injury in the 2018 preseason and both he and Robinson spent the year on injured reserve.  

Robinson's return was interesting, and surprising, especially to Marrone. On Saturday, Marrone said that Robinson, as well as Lee, would likely miss the start of the regular season. On Monday, it had changed, and the coach was excited to hear it. 

"I don’t know. I can’t answer a question I don’t know. I just know that he was at a point that they couldn’t get him over a point, and that he was going to stay on PUP, and that’s what I was told and then this morning I was told something different in a good way," he said. "Now I’m happy.  Now you write I’m happy. Before when guys get hurt and I’m down, I know, but hey, you take it."
