Bears receiver Marcus Robinson could see his first game action against Jacksonville on Friday since undergoing knee surgery 10 months ago.
Bears coach Dick Jauron said Monday the final decision rests with Robinson. Robinson said he wants to play.
preseason," Jauron said. "Marcus hasn't been on the field in a while, so it's important for him to get back out there.
"He says he's feeling good. He's moving well on the field, so like I said, I would anticipate that Marcus will play some this weekend."
Robinson, who set a club record by catching 84 passes for 1,400 yards in 1999, tore two ligaments in his left knee last season in Chicago's fifth game. He finished with 23 catches for 269 yards and two touchdowns.
"I'm totally ready to get out there and play again," the 27-year-old Robinson said. "I'm enjoying practice now. I'm having fun just to be able to get out there and jump and catch and run routes."
During the offseason, the Bears renegotiated the final two years of Robinson's four-year, $14 million contract to free up salary cap space. The Bears had told Robinson's agent that there was a chance the six-year veteran could have been waived unless an agreement on a salary reduction was reached.
"He has worked extremely hard," Bears quarterback Jim Miller said. "Again, we've seen shades of his old self and shades where he's got to work on some things. But we can't wait to get him back on the field because that's going to help our wide receiver package so much."
Notes: Middle linebacker Brian Urlacher missed a second straight day of practice due to flu-like symptoms. … Defensive end Bryan Robinson returned to Halas Hall to watch practice from the sidelines after missing Friday's game and Sunday's practice because of a similar illness.
