Outside linebacker Khalil Mack missed practice for a second straight day Thursday with a shoulder injury, though defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano didn’t sound particularly concerned.
“It’s part of the game,” he said. “He gets himself right by Sunday, goes out there and does it all over again, then finds himself a way to get healed up and go out there next Sunday.”
The Bears’ other injuries remained the same from the day before — short of punt returner DeAndre Carter being put on the NFL’s reserve/COVID-19 list.
Slot cornerback Buster Skrine remains in the concussion protocol, wide receiver Darnell Mooney has missed two straight practices for personal reasons and outside linebacker James Vaughters remained out with a knee problem.
Tight end Jimmy Graham, defensive lineman Akiem Hicks and inside linebacker Danny Trevathan all returned to practice after being given Wednesday off for a veteran rest day. They’ve been on a similar program all year.
