Bears WR Allen Robinson listed as questionable for divisional battle vs. Packers

Allen Robinson, Bears

Throughout the last few days, Chicago Bears former Pro Bowl wide receiver Allen Robinson has been dealing with a nagging hip injury.

This has begun with no participation in practice on Wednesday that has progressed to Robinson putting in a full workload in Friday’s session. However, he has drawn the questionable label on the injury report ahead of Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers, according to Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk.

Robinson was a full participant in the Bears’ final practice before Sunday’s game against the Packers and that would seem to put him on a path to playing in that contest. The Bears did not guarantee Robinson will be in the lineup, however.

Robinson was listed as questionable for the game, but might have drawn a probable tag if the league still allowed teams that option

Head coach Matt Nagy had indicated on Thursday that Robinson would be able to give it a go for this week’s game. The questionable designation does bring into question how severe the injury may be that he’s dealing with over the last several days. There is a chance that it could limit his workload against the Packers while putting more responsibility on his teammates pick up the slack in the passing game.

In his first campaign with the Bears, he has notched 46 receptions on 79 targets for 615 receiving yards and four touchdowns in 11 games played. He has recorded more than 100 receiving yards just once while posting more than 50 receiving yards six times this year. What should be noted is that he’s just over a year removed from a torn ACL that cost him almost the entire 2017 season with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

With Nagy already voicing that he expects Robinson to play, this may be an injury designation for precautionary reasons. The 25-year-old should have an opportunity to be a big factor down the stretch this season and the playoffs to help his team’s push toward the Super Bowl.
