Easing back into things

Wide receiver Marcus Robinson is not completely healthy following surgery to repair two torn ligaments in his left knee. He admits that he probably won't be at full-speed until sometime next year.

"Following this type of surgery you usually don't get back to 100 percent for two years," he said. "I'll still go out and give it everything I've got, but I'm only going to be about 90 percent this season."

Robinson is scheduled to practice once on Monday, Wednesday and Friday this week and is expected to begin participating without restrictions by the middle of training camp.

Highlights from Monday: David Terrell going up and over the secondary to come down with the ball. Earlier Mike Green broke up a pass intended for Terrell. R.W. McQuarters recovering a fumble in the morning session and then intercepting a ball that Jamin Elliot deflected in the air.

Kickoff Competition: Rabih Abdullah, Adrian Peterson, Leon Johnson, Eric McCoo, Dez White and Ahmad Merritt all received reps returning kicks. Although, no has emerged as of yet several balls wound up on the ground, which left special teams coach Mike Sweatman having the unit repeat the process until it was done correctly.

Walking Wounded: There were several players that suffered minor injuries as a result of the Bears first padded practice. Players that missed the afternoon session were cornerbacks Reggie Austin (right calf), Todd McMillon (right hamstring) and Floyd Young (left hamstring), defensive tackle Jason Wiltz (right hamstring), and linebacker Bobbie Howard (ill).
