The first injury report of the week will post later today, but the Bears already received some undesirable news on that front.
#Bears WR Allen Robinson is in the concussion protocol, Matt Nagy says.

Head Coach Matt Nagy told reporters that wide receiver Allen Robinson is in concussion protocol. Robinson was on the receiving end of a helmet-to-helmet hit late in the fourth quarter of the Bears’ loss to the Rams on Monday Night Football. The hit did not result in a penalty, but referees were quick to get Robinson off the field and get him checked out (because head injuries are to be taken seriously). And now, Robinson’s status for Sunday’s game against the Saints is up in the air.
Robinson, 27, leads Chicago in targets (70), catches (44), and receiving yards (544). He is on pace for a 101-catch, 1,243-yard, 5-touchdown season. And in case you didn’t already know, Robinson is in the final year of a three-year contract he signed with the Bears in 2018. So, yeah, losing him would be a pretty big deal.
We’ll keep an eye on Robinson’s progress throughout the week. Here’s hoping he feels better soon. But because we’re talking about a head injury, there’s no concrete timetable as to when Robinson will return.
