ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Bears OLB Khalil Mack is "unlikely to play" against the Bills today, "though Chicago wants to see him pregame before making any final determination." IDP owners can wait for his status at 11:30 a.m. ET before making lineup decisions, but expect to not have Mack available. The Bears' team D remains a strong option, however, against Nathan Peterman.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack (ankle, groin) put in a full practice Wednesday. That marks the 1st full practice since Week 6 for Mack, who missed the past 2 games. The star pass-rusher appears on track to return for Sunday's game against the Lions, which would only help make fantasy's top defense a stronger play against an up-and-down Detroit offense.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack is out for today's game against the Bills. That takes out a prime IDP option, but it doesn't stop the Chicago D from being the week's strongest play vs. Buffalo QB Nathan Peterman.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack is questionable for Sunday's game at Buffalo with the ankle injury that cost him last Sunday's game against the Jets. Mack again missed 2 days of practice before putting in a limited workout Friday. That's been his schedule the past 2 weeks. We'll see about his status Sunday morning.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack is inactive for today's game against the Jets. His sprained ankle is clearly worse off than last week, when he played through a "questionable" tag for 84% of the snaps. We'll see about his status for Week 9. The Bears' D remains a strong fantasy play for the week, though losing Mack dings the upside at least a bit.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. Just like last week, he sat out practice Wednesday and Thursday with the ankle injury and then returned for a limited Friday workout. Mack still played 84% of the snaps in the loss to the Patriots. We'd bet on full playing time once again this week.
