Courtnee James is a lovely magazine writer based in Jacksonville and could also be the gal dating NFL RB Denard Robinson. If that is the case, miss James must have been concerned about her 25-year-old boyfriend after he was found asleep behind the wheel!

Since turning pro, Robinson has played 31 games to begin his career with nine starts, seeing action at QB, WR, RB and on special teams. He has 161 rushes for 676 yards, 25 receptions for 150 yards and four kickoff returns for 88 yards.  Denard has two 100-yard rushing games. He made transition from collegiate quarterback to WR/RB/QB in the NFL. He moved into starting lineup at RB in 2014 and had led team in rushing with 582 yards.

Robinson –who was not intoxicated –was not alone at the time of the single car crash. Authorities say he was with a female companion and they notice she was also asleep. Both passengers needed assistance to get out of the vehicle.
