Bears WR Allen Robinson says he’s 100 percent after groin injury
In the last few weeks, Chicago Bears former Pro Bowl wide receiver Allen Robinson has been hampered by a nagging groin injury that has both impacted his play on the field and force him to miss some action.
However, Robinson has been able to take steps forward this year with his participation in practice this week to which he has voiced that he is now “100 percent” healed from the injury that has ailed him in the last couple of weeks, according to Adam Jahns of The Chicago Sun-Times.

Robinson hasn’t had the level of impact that he had initially hoped after making the jump in free agency from the Jacksonville Jaguars to the Bears on a three-year, $42 million deal. He has just 25 catches for 285 receiving yards and two touchdowns while missing each of the last two games due to the ailment while has failed to crack 100 receiving yards in any of the first six games that he has played this season. In fact, he has totaled fewer than 80 receiving yards all but once over that span of games to begin the 2018 campaign.
Chicago has some high hopes for Robinson to step in as their primary receiving target in the passing game as he has previously shown that he can be that game-changing talent. Prior to tearing his ACL in the season opener last year, he had put together a breakout 2015 campaign where he had 80 catches for 1,400 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns. This is something that the Bears clearly feel comfortable with him regathering that form after inking him to a lucrative deal this past offseason.
With Robinson voicing that he has healed from the groin injury, this sets up the opportunity for him to finish out rest of the 2018 campaign on a strong note to showcase that he can be their clear-cut No.1 receiving option.
