Chicago Bears receiver Allen Robinson has cleared the league’s concussion protocol and has the green light to play Sunday afternoon against the New Orleans Saints.
Robinson suffered his concussion late in the fourth quarter of Monday night’s 24-10 loss to the Los Angeles Rams and did not participate in any of the team’s three practices this week. Because of that, league rules required he be designated as doubtful for this week’s game on Friday’s official injury report. But by clearing concussion protocol Saturday, Robinson no longer carries an injury designation and is expected to play Sunday at Soldier Field.
Robinson has 44 catches for 544 yards and two touchdowns in the Bears’ 5-2 start. He has been the most reliable and consistent weapon in an offensive attack that has struggled in the first half of the season.
The Bears enter Sunday with the league’s 29th ranked offense, averaging just 308.0 yards per game. Since Nick Foles became the starting quarterback in Week 4, the Bears offense has managed only five touchdowns in its four games.
