Don’t be alarmed when you see all these names on the first Chicago Bears injury report of Week 3.
Consider that lede to be fair warning.
Ready? OK. Here goes nothing:

Khalil Mack (knee) remains a limited participant in practice. Meanwhile, a gaggle of Bears standouts were a full-go despite their ailments. Among them were Allen Robinson (knee), Robert Quinn (ankle), Darnell Mooney (quad), Anthony Miller (calf), and Cole Kmet (shoulder). Seeing those players as full participants is a welcoming sign. And I’d contest that the best news of this entire injury report is that Quinn practiced in full for the second straight time as a member of the Bears. That’s good news considering the ankle injury was serious enough to keep him out of Week 1.
The other eye-opening appearance on the injury report belongs to John Jenkins, who didn’t practice because of a thumb injury. Jenkins is the only true nose tackle on the Bears’ active roster. It’s a position the Bears are short-handed at right now, so seeing him on the injury report is a bit discouraging. We’ll keep an eye on that as this week goes on.
As for the Falcons, their first injury report is a big pile of yikes!
