It seems likely the Bears will face the Packers with the same depleted defensive backfield they used last week. Rookie cornerbackJaylon Johnson hasn’t practiced since hurting his right shoulder against the Texans, and slot corner Buster Skrine is still in the concussion protocol after missing three starts.

“I would say they’re day-to-day, and as long as they’re not out there practicing, that’s just how our mindset is with who is out there,” coach Matt Nagy said. “If we’re able to get those other guys back and get out there and play, it’s gonna do nothing but help us. But you have to approach it like they’re not, and then it’s not a surprise if they don’t play.”

Wide receiver Allen Robinson didn’t practice Thursday because of a hamstring injury. He missed the Thursday practice last week with the same issue for what Nagy deemed precautionary reasons.

Defensive lineman Akiem Hicks practiced after missing Wednesday’s walkthrough with an illness. Backup safety Deon Bush remains out with a foot injury.

The Packers had a much more eventful injury report. According to NFL Network, left tackle David Bakhtiari will miss the rest of the season after hurting his knee in practice. The team believes he tore his ACL.

Right tackle Bobby Massie returned to practice this week as a first step toward being taken off injured reserve. But don’t expect Massie, who has missed the last eight games with a knee injury, to play Sunday.

“I don’t know if I would go as far as to say that he’s going to get in there this weekend,” Nagy said. “But he’s just trying right now to see what it’s like to get out there. He hasn’t done it for a while. But it was definitely good to see him out there.”

It’s conceivable Massie could appear in the playoffs, though it’s fair to wonder if the Bears would want to change their offensive- line personnel now that the unit is playing so well.
