​LAKE FOREST, Ill. (670 The Score) -- Bears receiver Allen Robinson has left no doubt as to his health status moving forward.

"I'm 100 percent," he said before practice Thursday.

Robinson's declaration was backed by his return to work the day before, rejoining the Bears at practice as a full participant for the first time since suffering his groin injury at Miami on Oct. 14.

The Bears have taken the cautious route with Robinson, whom they have trusted as their top receiver. After he aggravated the injury against the Patriots on Oct. 21, the Bears removed Robinson from action and held him out two games.

Despite Robinson's words, the Bears will still evaluate his health ahead of their game against the Lions at Soldier Field on Sunday.

"It’s all managing," coach Matt Nagy said of Robinson's status. "No. 1, is he going to be able to go? And then, if he is, how much? Is it all the time, is it every play or is it here or there? We’ll kind of figure that out as we go."

Robinson being listed as a full participant in practice Wednesday indicated that he's in line to play Sunday. Signed to a three-year deal this offseason, Robinson had 25 receptions for 285 yards and two touchdowns in the six games prior to the groin injury.

The Bears will offer their official game-status report Friday afternoon, but Robinson is already making it clear he intends to be a key piece of the team's plans.

"It's big to get back as far as this time, us playing for something," Robinson said. "You spend your whole training camp and whole season preparing for November and December football, hoping to get into January. That's the plan. Being back healthy at the right time is definitely good.

"We definitely want to have all our playmakers out there at the same time. I think that's going to make this offense special. We have a lot of weapons, we have a lot of players that we can play off of, so it's hard for a defense to really plan against that."
