Could face suspension

<!--Default NodeId For Bryan Robinson is 722200,2003--><A HREF=[PlayerNode:722200]>Bryan Robinson</A>'s off the field problems proved to be a distraction last season, but with a second DUI conviction the league could suspend the defensive end.

Robinson was arrested on October 19 for drunken driving as well as driving on a suspended license, the result of a DUI conviction four months earlier. He has been sentenced to 30 days in Lake County jail, 360 hours of community service and 18 months probation stemming from his guilty plea to driving under the influence, a Class A misdemeanor.

There is a chance that Robinson could avoid jail time. He entered an alcohol treatment program Tuesday in an attempt to have his sentence reduced or commuted.

Robinson will return to court June 27 after completing an in-patient program. If the defensive lineman has to serve the maximum jail sentence there is a chance he could miss the start of training camp, which is July 25.

However, aside from his legal problems the league could suspend Robinson. According to league policy, discipline for a second alcohol-related violation is likely to be suspension.

"Bryan is committed to resolving this issue and moving forward," Bears general manager Jerry Angelo said in a release on Monday. "He has shown remorse and understands the consequences for his actions. We are pleased with the progress and dedication he has demonstrated over the last seven months. We support him and his effort to bring closure to these events by complying with the court's ruling"
