Key players are on the Chicago Bears injury report.
The Chicago Bears released their Friday injury report for the upcoming game against the New England Patriots and there are some key names on it.
First we start with the irrelevant news, Marcus Cooper is doubtful for the game. Bears’ fans will all live.
Before the NFL changed their injury reporting policy, it used to have “probable” on the injury report. If that still existed, Eric Kush and Price Amukamara would be probable.
The fact that Amukamara is no longer questionable is great news. The Bears will need their secondary in tip-top shape with Tom Brady throwing darts all over the field.

Finally, we get to the questionable list. Khalil Mack and Allen Robinson both sat out practice all or most of the week, but Friday’s practice saw Mack and Robinson both play, although limited. That’s a big piece of news and means that likely both will play. It doesn’t even need to be mentioned how critical it is for both of them to be on the field.
The last injury is the one to watch the closest: Bryce Callahan. Callahan injured his ankle late on Thursday and did not practice on Friday. Matt Nagy said that it was precautionary at this point so hopefully Callahan will play, but it’s always a concern when you have surprise additions to the injury report on Friday. Keep in mind, Ryan Tannehill was questionable out of nowhere last week on Friday and by Sunday he was out of the game.
Callahan is a critical piece of the defense, especially with how Brady and Bill Belichick utilize James White and Julian Edelman. Hopefully every questionable player plays for Chicago, and if that happens, hopefully the Bears will be a full go against the Patriots.
