With regards to new injuries, the Bears have multiple starters.
This is not a good situation.
After a bye week, the Chicago Bears are back in action, and the team’s first injury report suggests they may have needed more rest.
While one of the seven players who did not practice on Wednesday was veteran tight end Jimmy Graham, Chicago listed six players with injuries, including a few starters who have new ailments.
Wideout Allen Robinson (hamstring), safety Eddie Jackson (hamstring), OLB Khalil Mack (foot), defensive lineman Akiem Hicks (ankle), inside linebacker Danny Trevathan (knee), and offensive lineman Elijah Wilkinson (back) were all absent from the team’s November 17 practice, while WR Darnell Mooney (foot), linebacker Alec Ogletree (ankle), and running back Damien Williams (knee) were also
Kicker Cairo Santos was an unusual addition, as he practiced fully but was listed as having an elbow injury.

New Injuries to Robinson and Trevathan
Mack, Hicks, and Jackson have all been dealing with injuries for several weeks, so their inclusion on the injury report isn’t surprising, though it’s a little concerning that none of the three core defenders have practiced since returning from their bye.
Ogletree missed the team’s Week 9 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, so his injury isn’t new, but Robinson, Trevathan, and Wilkinson are all reportedly dealing with new problems.
Robinson’s injury is especially concerning because he is only now getting into a rhythm with rookie quarterback Justin Fields.
A-Rob had his best game of the season against the Steelers, catching four passes for 68 yards.
“He was singled out in the last game.
“That doesn’t happen a lot of the time,” Fields said of Robinson’s performance against Pittsburgh.
“If that happens, you want to give him as much ball as possible.”
Of course, when those opportunities present themselves, we’ll try to get the ball to him.
… We always preach winning one-on-one matchups and such.”
Robinson hasn’t missed a game this season, and he’s been listed on the injury report before and played anyway, so we’ll see what happens.
