New York Jets running back James Robinson was not happy after Sunday’s win over the Chicago Bears after being a healthy scratch, adding that he’s been working «a– off» to make an impact on the field.

Robinson was acquired by the Jets in a trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars in October to complement rookie Zonovan Knight.

«Obviously, I didn’t come here to not play,» Robinson told ESPN on Wednesday. «Obviously, they brought me here for a reason. I don’t expect anything unless I work for it, and I’ve been working my ass off. Not playing bothers me.»
