DNP: WR Allen Robinson (hip)

Robinson has been hampered by injuries throughout the season as he has missed a couple of games that have had an impact on his play on the field. He has been one of their top receiving threats, but he has produced 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.
The 25-year-old has seen his production fluctuate over the last four games, as he has posted below 50 receiving yards three times. Robinson is coming off another solid outing against the Rams where he had five receptions on eight targets for 42 receiving yards. Although he hasn’t played at the level that was initially expected, he has their most reliable receiving target.
This decision to keep him out of practice on Wednesday was likely made in order to maintain his health to give him some rest during the week ahead of this week’s matchup against the Green Bay Packers. Robinson was a major factor in the passing game in the 24-23 loss to the Packers in the season opener as he hauled in four catches on seven targets for 61 receiving yards.
The Bears should have a better idea on his health over the next couple of days as his availability in practice will be a telling sign of his status for Week 15. In the meantime, this brings up the possibility that Robinson could be out of the mix.
