Robinson was a non-participant in Bears practice for a third straight day. He reportedly hurt his hamstring against the Steelers while trying to pull in a 39-yard fade route.
The Pro Bowl wideout has made an effort to push through the November 8 injury, but the issue is lingering and a short week doesn’t help.
It’s been a bit of a struggle for Robinson in 2021. Through nine games, his numbers are down across the board. Largely due to inconsistent play at quarterback.
On the season, A-Rob has just 30 catches for 339 yards and a single score.
Allen Robinson, who spoke with the media today and said he's "getting better" did not practice Tuesday.
Neither did Justin Fields, Akiem Hicks or Damien Williams. Fields was spotted moving around in the weight room area.
