After losing standout rookie running back Breece Hall to an ACL injury, the New York Jets officially made the move to acquire Jaguars RB James Robinson on Tuesday.

"We have traded [James Robinson] to the New York Jets," the team announced via Twitter.

Robinson had been the team's leading rusher for the past two seasons. Now he's on his way to the Jets in exchange for a conditional sixth-round pick in next year's draft.

With Hall's injury, and Robinson recently losing his starting job to Travis Etienne, the deal makes sense for both sides.

That said, it'll be difficult for New York to replace Hall's production. The rookie out of Iowa State was top-10 in the league in rushing and had scored a touchdown in four straight games prior to going down with season-ending knee injury.

Robinson figures to pair up with Michael Carter in the Jets' backfield going forward.
