Robinson returns to practice on limited basis

New Bears receiver Allen Robinson has taken a major step in his recovery from a torn ACL this week, returning to the practice field—albeit in limited fashion. “It’s a positive sign when he’s out there and he’s able to run some plays and just kind of for his mindset out there. “One of the biggest things is that when you go through an injury like that—and I personally went through it myself—it can be one where physically you’re good to go and you feel really strong, but you still have to get by the mindset of that.
It’s going to be a day-by-day process for him, but to have him out there, I know it felt good for the offense, and that was good.”
The 6-3, 211-pounder from Penn State spent his first four NFL seasons with the Jaguars, catching 202 passes for 2,848 yards and 22 touchdowns in 43 games. “That’s one step in the right direction.”
Nagy said that Robinson would “probably not” participate in team drills next week when the Bears conclude their offseason program with a full-squad minicamp. “We’re just not there yet,” Nagy said. “He’s well-rounded in the fact that he’s a big receiver that can run every route that’s out there, and especially in this offense he can do that,” Nagy said.
The one thing that stood out to me breaking him down as a player with Jacksonville was for someone his size I thought he was really good at beating press, which you will see normally with bigger guys.

New Bears receiver Allen Robinson has taken a major step in his recovery from a torn ACL this week, returning to the practice field—albeit in limited fashion.

The prized free agent acquisition, who injured his knee in last year’s season opener while playing for the Jacksonville Jaguars, participated in individual drills as the Bears conducted their eighth of 10 OTA workouts.

“It’s really good to see him out there,” coach Matt Nagy said Wednesday. “It’s a positive sign when he’s out there and he’s able to run some plays and just kind of for his mindset out there.
