Bears WR Allen Robinson feels ‘100 percent’ ready for training camp
The Chicago Bears took a bit of a risk after signing wide receiver Allen Robinson to a big three-year, $42 million in free agency coming off a torn ACL. But for now, it looks as if Robinson is right on track to star in Week 1.
According to Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune, Robinson has declared himself 100 percent ready to go for training camp after a slow and steady rehab process.
“It has been a process that we have taken a little bit slower, but I think that was for the best,” Robinson said. “It just was all about getting me ready for this time right here, so I feel great.”
Robinson also claims he’s done just about everything to restore his trust in his knee and remove that mental hurdle for when he does get back. He likens the process to riding a bike and is confident in recreating the muscle memory he was unable to use for the past year.
If Robinson does get back to the player he once was, he should prove to be a massive weapon for young quarterback Mitchell Trubisky in the passing game. Robinson showed what his ceiling is during his second season with the Jaguars when he grabbed 80 catches for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns.
Although Robinson feels 100 percent right now, it may still take a while for him to get back to that top level following his serious knee injury. But at least he’s healthy enough to participate in training camp, which will go a long way toward getting him ready to produce this season.
