Good news on the Chicago Bears final injury report this week, as only two players appear. Outside linebackers Khalil Mack (knee) and Robert Quinn (ankle) have both received the questionable designation, but both seem on track to play on Sunday against the New York Giants.
Mack was limited all week, but when asked to clarify what’s going on he said, “It’s nothing really too much different. I know I’m going to be ready on Sunday. That’s all that matters.”
And Quinn, while limited earlier this week, was full go at practice today, which is a good sign that we’ll see him make his Bears debut at Soldier Field. He wouldn’t confirm he’d be playing but he did say, “I’m definitely excited to see what I can bring, see what we (he and Mack) can bring as a tandem.”
Defensive lineman Akiem Hicks, who sat out yesterday with an illness, was a full participant today and does not have an injury designation for Sunday.
The Giants have three players on their injury report, with reserve defensive back Adrian Colbert listed as out, and back up linebacker Carter Coughlin and starting wide out Golden Tate both listed as questionable after being limited today at their practice.
The Bears also announced two signings to their practice squad today, with the reacquisitions of five year vet, linebacker Devante Bond, and undrafted free agent offensive lineman Dieter Eiselen from Yale. Chicago has one more spot available on their 16-man practice squad.
UPDATE: Bond was activated on Saturday, as Josh Woods was ruled out of the game due to personal reasons.
