Bears WR Allen Robinson back at practice, good to go vs. Packers

Allen Robinson, Packers

The Chicago Bears are hedging toward locking up the NFC North division title heading into their Week 15 matchup against the Green Bay Packers.

In the last couple of days, there have been questions to arise concerning the health of former Pro Bowl wide receiver Allen Robinson due to a hip injury that kept him out of practice on Wednesday. According to Patrick Finley of The Chicago Sun-Times, Robinson has returned to practice on Thursday and is expected to play against the Packers.

There doesn’t appear to be much concern with Robinson’s health at this point, but more so that team has been looking to manage his health throughout the week ahead of this week’s game. He has been able to remain relatively healthy throughout the season, which is something that will stay the same moving forward with this plan of action with helping keep his body fresh and ready to go.

Robinson has stepped in a prominent receiving role in his first campaign with the Bears as he has recorded 46 receptions on 79 targets for 615 receiving yards and four touchdowns in 11 games played. He has notched more than 100 receiving yards just once while posting more than 50 receiving yards six times this year. However, he has gone through a notable period of fluctuation with his production the last four games as he has put 50 receiving yards three times.

What should be noted is that he’s in his first season back since tearing his ACL last year with the Jacksonville Jaguars. It is likely still an adjustment period for him to get back to the physical point he was prior to the injury.  Beyond that, Robinson will be able to add another solid outing to his season that could help lift his team toward a huge home win over their rivals on Sunday afternoon.
