Jacksonville Jaguars left tackle Cam Robinson was removed from the physically unable to perform list on Monday.
The move comes two days after coach Doug Marrone was skeptical about Robinson being available for the season opener. Robinson is recovering from an ACL tear in his left knee that forced him to miss the final 14 games of the 2018 campaign.
"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," Marrone told reporters on Monday. "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."
Robinson, 23, said he has been shooting for the Sept. 8 opener against the Kansas City Chiefs all along.
"I had a plan this whole time: Be back by Week 1," Robinson told reporters on Monday. "I didn't really put a timetable on it. I was just basing it on how I felt coming in each and every day. Anything anybody said (about a return), it didn't come from me so I never really paid too much attention to it. People are going to talk."
Robinson suffered the injury in Week 2 against the New England Patriots. He started 15 games as a rookie in 2017 after being a second-round pick out of Alabama.
