Physically Speaking, Allen Robinson “Feels Fine” and is Having Fun at Bears Camp

Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears haven’t had much good news to share from the injury front in recent years, so we’ll take what we can get around these parts. Especially when it comes to newly inked free agent wide receiver Allen Robinson.

Robinson is getting a feel for football activities after missing all but three plays of the 2017 season (ACL injury suffered in Week 1), which helps explain why he sat out practice on Monday. But don’t worry Bears fans, the team’s biggest free agent splash told the Associated Press he feels fine from a physical standpoint: “It’s all about getting back acclimated, running certain routes, getting the small things in football, as far as actually football — route-running, sinking my hips, stuff like that,” Robinson said, via the AP’s Gene Chamberlain. “As far as physically, I feel fine.”

And there was much rejoicing throughout Bears nation.

Robinson was signed to be the big-play target Mitch Trubisky didn’t have last season, the sort of player the young gun needs around him to grow into a successful NFL quarterback. The 24-year-old wideout, Robinson, said he was having fun being back on the playing surface after a 10-month absence, and certainly put in all the necessary work to get himself to that point. Indeed, he deserves a major tip of the cap for grinding away throughout the offseason, to avoid playing catch-up by the time camp rolled around.

Still, the Bears would be wise to be cautious. With five preseason games on the docket, there’s no point in rushing him back. All things considered, it’s pretty heady on the Bears part to build in some pre-determined off days into Robinson’s schedule.

If you get a chance to hit up Bourbonnais and check out Bears practice, keep your eyes on Robinson when he is on the field. It’s must-see stuff if he’s on the practice field and running routes. There’s something about the way he carries himself and the presence he brings to the huddle and to the gridiron. It’s as if just being there draws your eyes to him. Robinson garners extra attention from defenders, so he should probably get it from those of us watching from the sidelines.
