Robinson Getting Back Into Pads

Koren Robinson is ready to resume his football career after serving a one-year suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. The league reinstated the Packers receiver on the first day he was eligible to return.

His agent says Robinson has been working out in Arizona and is
expected to fly to Green Bay tonight.

Robinson's suspension came in the wake of an incident in August 2006 while he was playing for the Minnesota Vikings. Police said Robinson led them on a car chase at speeds over 100 miles per hour, and his blood-alcohol content was found to be above the legal limit. The Vikings cut Robinson, and he signed a two-year deal with the Packers last September. But he played in only four games before he was suspended.

Robinson was sentenced to 90 days in jail after pleading down to a charge of fleeing police, and got three months in jail for a probation violation.
