Update: Allen Robinson has cleared the concussion protocol, and should be available to play in the Bears Week 8 match up with the New Orleans Saints. Great news for Robinson, The Bears and the fans!
Chicago Bears Head Coach Matt Nagy revealed Wednesday that Wide Receiver Allen Robinson is currently in the NFL’s Concussion Protocol after taking a big hit Monday night. Robinson took the hit on a 4th and 3 play, and was tackled from behind by Rams Safety Nick Scott. Robinson was subsequently pulled from the game, and didn’t return.
At this point, it’d difficult to tell if the injury will keep him out of next Sunday’s game against the Saints. Robinson has been fairly durable for the Bears, having not missed a game since 2018. Concussions are always hard to predict, so there’s no telling how this will play out yet. There’s also always concerns over the long term effects, so I’m sure everyone will join us in wishing Robinson well.
Robinson has been the Bears clear number one receiver this season, with 44 receptions on 70 targets for 544 yards and 2 touch downs thus far. The big story involving Robinson this year has to do with his on-going contract talks with The Bears’ front office, which to this point is still unresolved.
