Thursday’s injury report for the Chicago Bears was the cleanest it’s been in weeks, but the one player still sitting out is a big one. For the second consecutive day Khalil Mack received a DNP (did not practice) with an ailing back.
After practice head coach Matt Nagy met the media and said Mack’s injury is “precautionary,” while adding, “I don’t think it’s anything that we’re real concerned about.”
The Bears play the Lions on Sunday and Nagy is “confident” that Mack will be able to go.
The good news kept coming from Halas Hall as defensive lineman Akiem Hicks returned form that hamstring injury, albeit only in a limited capacity, and Charles Leno Jr. was full go after hurting his toe last week.
Also back as a full participant was quarterback Nick Foles (hip), and Nagy said he will serve as Mitchell Trubisky’s back up against Detroit.
Here’s the full injury report from the Bears today.
