Bears CB Jaylon Johnson (shoulder) is inactive for today's game against the Saints. That marks the 4th straight game he has missed. With slot CB Buster Skrine (concussion) previously ruled out, it'll be the 4th straight week that Chicago has missed 2 of its top 3 CBs.
Bears LB Roquan Smith (elbow) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints. He missed practice all week after suffering the injury in the 1st quarter of the Week 17 loss to the Packers. Smith didn't return to that game. We'll see whether he's ready to play in this one. CB Jaylon Johnson (shoulder) is also questionable. He returned to a week of limited practices after missing the season's final 3 games. We'll see about his status Sunday.
Bears OLB Khalil Mack (shoulder) and DL Akiem Hicks (ankle) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Hicks put in just a limited Friday after missing the previous 2 days of practice. Mack went full, no practice and then limited over the 3 days. We'll check the status for both on Sunday morning. Starting CB Jaylon Johnson (shoulder) has been ruled out for the 2nd straight game.
Bears OLB Khalil Mack (shoulder) is active for today's game against the Vikings. He's ready for normal use in IDP lineups. Chicago will miss 2 of its top 3 corners, though. Jaylon Johnson (shoulder) and Buster Skrine (concussion) are both inactive. That only enhances an already solid-to-good matchup for Vikings WRs Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson.
