Bears injury report: Khalil Mack sits out practice Wednesday with foot injury

As expected, Bears outside linebacker Khalil Mack sat out practice Wednesday due to a foot injury. Mack has been dealing with the foot injury for the better part of a month.

A report surfaced earlier Wednesday that Mack could miss time due to the injury, with a stint on injured reserve as a possibility. Asked about the NFL Network report Wednesday, Bears head coach Matt Nagy said no decision has been made.

“He’s in that process with doctors and trainers,” said Nagy, who remains quarantined after testing positive for COVID-19. “We’re in the process as an organization. And we’ll have to decide, ‘OK, what’s best for him, what’s best for us?’ and then we’ll just see where it all ends up. So we’re probably close to getting to those type of discussions.”

In other injury news, safety Tashaun Gipson (hip), return specialist Jakeem Grant (ankle), defensive tackle Akiem Hicks (groin), tight end J.P. Holtz (quad), defensive tackle Bilal Nichols (knee) and receiver Allen Robinson (ankle) were limited in practice Wednesday. Guard James Daniels is dealing with a knee injury but was a full participant in practice.

Gipson and Hicks missed Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay. Grant, Holtz, Nichols and Robinson all played despite their nagging injuries.

The Bears take on the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday at Soldier Field.
