A trio of Bears who practiced with limitations last week are squared away to play against the Vikings on Monday Night Football.
All hands on deck, save for the players who aren’t active:

So here’s the good news. Wide receiver Allen Robinson, tight end Cole Kmet, and swing tackle Jason Spriggs are all ACTIVE for tonight’s game. That’s welcome news on so many levels.
Robinson battled a knee issue all week, which limited him in practice. However, he is feeling well enough to play against a Vikings secondary just begging to be beaten by air. Kmet (groin) missed two practices before being upgraded to limited participation at the end of the week. After being questionable to play tonight, Kmet is set to assume TE2 duties. Spriggs was also missing in two practices because of a knee, but he is active after missing last week’s game while on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Having Robinson and Kmet available is a big deal, but let’s not sleep on Spriggs. Because even though he hasn’t lived up to his draft billing as a second-rounder, Spriggs represents a serviceable option replacing the injured Bobby Massie.
