Khalil Mack inactive for first time in NFL career

Linebacker Khalil Mack‘s teams have played 70 games since he entered the NFL and Mack has been in the lineup for all of them.

That streak will end on Sunday. The Bears included Mack on their list of seven inactive players for their home game against the Jets.

The news isn’t out of left field as Mack was listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report because of an ankle problem that’s been bothering him for several weeks. Word on Sunday morning was that Mack would take part in pregame warmups before a final decision was made and it must not have gone well.

That report also included word that wide receiver Allen Robinson would sit out with a groin injury and that turned out to be the case. The Jets, meanwhile, will be without wide receiver Robby Anderson and cornerback Trumaine Johnson after listing both as doubtful.

  1. So ——- will KM reimburse the Bears $1.47 million which he would make for today’s game?

    Or is this just a freebie?

  2. Bears should have rested him last week against the Pats. You could see he was very limited on the field and nowhere hear his usual dominant self. The result was probably making the injury worse and potentially missing multiple games.

  3. He needs to sit, he was completely useless the past two games they lost to the Pats and Fins. This isn’t rocket science, anyone making snarky and ignorant comments is simply jealous that he’s not on their team.

  4. I understand your pain Raiders fans. Rooting for your team to lose each week for higher draft picks next spring is a miserable existence. And now you guys must root for two teams to fail.

    Here’s what I know: a healthy Khalil Mack is a hell of a lot more fun to watch on Sundays than cap space or future draft picks. I wouldn’t give him back for 3 first round picks.

    You sound like you’re on the verge of a tantrum. Here is not a snarky or ignorant comment: Mack disappears for long stretches. So get used to your $22 million a year two draft pick player doing that. He plays defense like Lebron James, by going half speed at times and tries to save himself for the 4th quarter. Problem is, that’s not a game changer. And so often in the raiders case, it meant not enough stops all game and playing from behind. A reason why Carr had 10 fourth quarter comebacks in Mack’s most dominate year.

  6. The Raiders fans are on here still going on about losing one of the best defenders in the game. Let’s take a look see:

    The Raiders are 1-5 and the Bears are 3-3. I have to say the Bears are still the clear cut winners in this trade.

    You guys (Raiders fans) look stupid, angry and desperate.

    Jealous my team didn’t give up their future two first round draft picks on a team that needs more than just a good pass rusher and then break the bank for him. Bears will eventually regret this trade but are just riding on a high right now that will come down crashing sooner rather than later.

  8. This reduces the trade’s positive value. This is why you never mortgage a team’s future for today. Washington got burned on the four draft pick fraud of the Great Gimmick. So will the Bears.

    but gruden was so dumb to trade him (and his salary) for picks lol

    ————

    He was. He would have been better trading Carr. Mack is one of the best players at his position. Carr is in the bottom third yet they are paying him as if he is top 10.

  10. He was invisible last week. 2 1st rd picks that CHicago gave up as they rebuild and gave him a 6 year 141 million dollar contract. Umm.

    Yikes!

    By the time they become a legit playoff contender, Trubisky will be due at 25-30 mil per. Yikes!

  11. You have an argument about the injury affecting his efficacy against the dolphins, but against the pats i doubt it would’ve made that big of a difference. The pats eliminate your strength on both sides of the ball.

  12. It surprising how many mindless posts can be created by the mere mention of Khalil Mack. So far, I’ve learned that you shouldn’t trade for players because they might get injured; you shouldn’t have talented, highly paid players on your roster because they may get injured plus whether or not injured players should reimburse their teams.

    The news for Raiders Oakland fans, however, is good. Soon, they won’t have to worry about the Mack trade or their team since they won’t one. On the negative side, Sundays will no longer be a low-crime day since the grime that inhabits the stadium will be back on the street.

    Brilliance. Of course he was invisible last week. He was injured. That’s why he’s not playing today. Because he was injured. It’s not new news. A real Patriots fan would know this since it was being talked about prior to last week’s game.

    They should be a playoff contender next year. Trubisky won’t be due for a new contract until 2022.

    Stick to following the Patriots. That’s where your NFL knowledge begins and ends.

    We will now see how the Bears D holds up.

    ______________________

    Speaks for itself in that 24-10 win. Khalil Mack is rested and was not needed at all. Great decision, great to have him on the Bears!!

    Go Bears!!!

  15. Perhaps the trade ends up being bad for both teams. Does there have to be a winner and a looser?
    Bad in the sense for the Raiders IF they dont turn those picks into top productive players, but they DID free up major cap space for their rebuild with the trade. Bad for the Bears as they lost high draft capital for adding talent when they really werent where you want to be to add such an enormous salary to your cap space, and in the end Mack while very good isnt going to win you games on his own. Both fan bases probably regret this trade in 4 years.
