The Chicago Bears are still one of the healthiest teams in the NFL, but unfortunately the most important player on the defensive side of the ball has been hobbled the last few weeks. Khalil Mack is officially listed as questionable with that ankle injury he suffered in Miami. He wasn’t very effective last week against the Patriots, but we’ll see if an extra week of healing can get him back closer to 100%.
Also questionable is wide out Allen Robinson II with a groin injury. Both he and Mack were limited at Friday’s practice after missing the previous two days. They had the same practice schedule a week ago and both ended up playing on Sunday.
The Bears have ruled starting left guard Eric Kush out, so that means that rookie James Daniels will get his first start as a pro. My guess is that he remains with the ones.
Cornerback Marcus Cooper, who has missed several games with a hamstring injury, was off the injury report this week.
For the New York Jets, they list the following players as doubtful, wide out Robby Anderson, center Spencer Long, and cornerback Trumaine Johnson. All three of these players are starters, so missing any of them would be a big blow.
They have already ruled one player out for Sunday and that player is starting wide receiver Quincy Enunwa.
The questionable Jets are corner Morris Claiborne, safety Marcus Maye, left tackle Kelvin Beachum, and linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis. Of these four, only Pierre-Louis is a back-up.
The Jets will also be without running back Bilal Powell who recently injured his neck and was placed on injured reserve.
