No practice yet for Eddie Jackson, Allen Robinson

With a win and some help from the team they just beat, the Bears can end up earning a bye. They may have to do that without a couple of key players.

Safety Eddie Jackson and receiver Allen Robinson have yet to practice this week.

Jackson suffered an ankle injury in a Week 15 win over the Packers; he hasn’t played or practiced since then. Robinson has a rib injury.

If the Bears beat the Vikings and the Rams lose to the 49ers, the Bears will become the No. 2 seed, securing a first-round bye and quite possibly welcoming the Rams back to Chicago in the divisional round. A Chicago loss forces the Bears to play at home in the wild-card round, most likely in a rematch with the Vikings.

  1. The Vikings are going to lay the beat down on the Bears and it won’t even be close. Seattle is going to loose to the Cards and Eagles will loose to the skins and it’s going to be Vikings vs Cowboys and Seahawks vs Bears. The road teams will win both WC games.

  2. If the Vikes can’t win at home in front of those fans they don’t deserve a playoff spot. Contain the QB and protect the ball and they’ll win. SKOL!

  3. Bold statement from vikesfansteve. I won’t go that far, but I do think that the Vikings will win Sunday and secure the 6 seed. The Bears just don’t seem to play with the same edge on the road as they do at home and the Vikings defense will be in playoff form. No way that Seattle is going to lose to the Cards at home either. Next step: denying the Eagle’s playoff hopes, then watch them lose their savior St. Nick in the off-season!

  4. Well then, fine.

    Either way though, the Vikings will win at home on Sunday. If Eddie Jackson has the high ankle sprain hair line fracture they think he does. Chicago’s season is over because the Vikings will beat them in Chicago too. By the way, the Cards have won in Seattle 3 yrs in a row. It’s going to be 4. But I can play what if game too.

  5. Pay $84 million for one playoff game? Not me. I’d rather see the Eagles in the playoffs. Bears win Sunday.

  6. Anyone who thinks the Vikes actually has a chance is trippin balls …. like hardcore. Even if the Bears do not have 3 starters, Trubisky is still too much for them to handle. Vikes best bet if Chicago’s glaring weakness doesn’t make the FG and XP it needs.
