Wide receiver Allen Robinson, signed to a three-year, $42-million contract by the Chicago Bears earlier this year, practiced with the team for the first time on Wednesday during Organized Team Activities.

Robinson sustained a torn left ACL in the first game last season while playing for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

“It’s really good to see him out there,” coach Matt Nagy said. “He didn’t do enough to say what he did one way or another, but it’s a positive sign when he’s out there and he’s able to run some plays.

“It’s going to be a day-by-day process with him, but to have him out there, I know it felt good for the offense and that was good.”

Nagy said Robinson probably will not take part in team drills during next week’s mandatory minicamp, but he expects the wide receiver to be “ready to go” for training camp in July.

Robinson made 202 receptions for 2,848 yards and 22 touchdowns, but played only two full seasons and a total of 43 games in four years with Jacksonville after the Jaguars selected him in the second round (61st overall) out of Penn State in the 2014 NFL Draft.
