Chicago Bears star wide receiver Allen Robinson has entered concussion protocol, according to head coach Matt Nagy. This calls his availability for Sunday's clash with the New Orleans Saints into question.

Losing Robinson would obviously be a gigantic blow to the Bears' offense. The 27-year-old has been dominant, turning 70 targets into 44 receptions for 544 yards and 2 touchdowns through seven games. He's the only wide receiver on the offense who has reached 22 receptions or 240 receiving yards.

Expect third-year receiver Anthony Miller and promising rookie wideout Darnell Mooney to pick up the slack if Robinson can't go, though he does still have some time to heal up and possibly be cleared in time for Sunday's game.

It's tough to see Nick Foles and the Bears' passing game moving the ball much without their best player. Hopefully Robinson can get back on the field soon.

Chicago is currently a 4-point home underdog against New Orleans, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
