49ers-Bears: Khalil Mack not expected to play

Oct 27, 2021 at 8:18 AM--


San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo may have to worry about one less All-Pro pass rusher chasing him around the football field this season. Chicago Bears defender Khalil Mack is not expected to play during Sunday's game against the Niners, per NFL Media.

The three-time first-team All-Pro and six-time Pro Bowl selection could land on injured reserve due to a foot injury. That would force Mack to miss a minimum of three games and four weeks (because of the Bears' bye), likely starting with this weekend's matchup against the visiting 49ers.


Meanwhile, Bears coach Matt Nagy says no decision on Mack's status has been reached.


Mack, 30, has recorded 19 tackles, six tackles for a loss, seven quarterback hits, and six sacks through seven games this season, per Pro Football Reference.

Oddsmakers currently have San Francisco favored by 3.5 points over Chicago. The two teams kick off from Soldier Field on Sunday at noon CT (10 a.m. PT).

49ers-Jaguars: Deebo Samuel credits this player for his leap as a receiver, expects to play Sunday

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel is dealing with a shin contusion and has been limited during practice this week. That probably won't keep him out of Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, though. "I'll be ready for Sunday," Samuel said after practice. "We're just taking our time. Just had a shin contusion, so just taking it slow, but we'll be ready." That's good news for the Niners. Samuel is the team's leading receiver, and his 979 receiving yards rank second among all NFL receivers this season. After struggling through injuries last season, the wideout has made a significant leap in his third year. Many, including Samuel, credit one player's influence for that leap as an offensive weapon.

San Francisco 49ers rookie running back Elijah Mitchell is officially listed as "doubtful" for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Head coach Kyle Shanahan is still hoping that the rookie could play, but the odds are against him. Mitchell suffered a finger fracture during Monday night's win over the Los Angeles Rams. The next day, he underwent a procedure to repair the damage. As a result, Mitchell has not practiced at all this week. The coach had hoped the team's leading rusher would get some work in during the three practices, but that never happened. "It's just how he feels with it," Shanahan explained. "And we thought it would be a little further along now. But obviously, it isn't. That's why he couldn't go today. We're holding out hope because
