Kevin White is Inactive Again and the Bears Have Just Four Active WRs For Week 10 Against Lions

Chicago Bears

The Return of the Mack is officially official.

Khalil Mack’s two-week hiatus is over and the Chicago Bears’ star pass-rusher is back in the mix as a full-go for today’s game against the Detroit Lions. The same can be said about Allen Robinson, who returns to action after missing the last two weeks while nursing a groin injury. But because there’s no witty hip-hop cross-reference for me to make, Mack gets the top billing here. I’m sure Mr. Robinson understands.

As for the players who are inactive, here is your full list:

After being active last week in place of Kevin White, rookie wide receiver Javon Wims joins White among this week’s Bears inactives. A second straight healthy scratch for White would seemingly speak volumes for what the Bears think about White in the short-term, as well as the big picture. This might be what the beginning of the end of White’s time in Chicago looks like. And if it is, it’s a disappointing end to what once looked so promising in 2015.

Without White and Wims, the Bears will take the field with just four wide receivers against a pass defense that has allowed the fourth highest average of yards per pass attempt and the fifth highest yards per reception in 2018. This isn’t to say Mitch Trubisky doesn’t have pass-catching options. It’s just that having four active receivers against a wretched pass defense seems curious. I’m sure it’s all part of some bigger plan that we’ll see unfold over the next few hours.

Then again, tight end Trey Burton and running back Tarik Cohen can essentially play the role of wide receiver in this offense. So it’s not as if the Bears don’t have a variety of players who can be targeted in the passing game. With that being said, you might want to make sure Cohen and Burton have a space on your fantasy team’s starting lineup before noon games kick off.
