Mack tallied a sack and four tackles in Chicago's 35-16 loss to the Packers on Sunday.
The 50 tackles Mack had was his highest in three years with the Bears, though he's posted between 47 and 50 tackles in each of those seasons. He's also had two straight seasons with fewer than 10 sacks, and although he's still an amazing NFL player, his IDP value is limited in leagues in which he's listed as a linebacker. After the team completes its playoff run, he'll enter the fourth year of a seven-year deal and likely will maintain similar fantasy value that he's had the past couple seasons.
Mack (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Packers.
The 29-year-old has been battling the shoulder injury since early December, though he has yet to miss a game this season. Mack has only 16 tackles (nine solo), 1.5 sacks, one interception and one forced fumble over his past seven games.
Mack (shoulder) was held to limited participation during the Bears' practice session Thursday.
There's no great concern just yet regarding the three-time All-Pro's potential Week 17 availability, as he has frequently had his practice reps managed throughout the 2020 campaign. Last week alone, Mack submitted a full session Wednesday before being listed as a DNP and a limited participant the subsequent two practices. Mack hasn't missed a contest all season, and it's possible Chicago is merely managing its star defender's workload heading into a vital Week 17 matchup against the Packers.
Mack (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game at Jacksonville.
The 29-year-old continues to battle the shoulder injury but has yet to miss a game in 2020, and that won't be changing Week 16. Mack has 44 total tackles, eight sacks, one interception and three forced fumbles through 14 games.
Mack (shoulder) did not participate during the Bears' practice session Thursday.
A full practice session from Mack on Wednesday, contrasted by a Thursday DNP, may seem like cause for alarm on the surface. Coach Matt Nagy clarified, however, that Mack's Thursday practice absence was considered to be "more precautionary," per Patrick Finley of The Chicago Sun-Times. The three-time All-Pro has faced shoulder, back and ankle issues over the past two months alone, but he remains without a game absence on the 2020 campaign.
Mack recorded half a sack and three tackles in Chicago's 33-27 victory over the Vikings on Sunday.
After not finding the sack column in four games, Mack now has 1.5 sacks over the last two weeks, and he could add to that total in a favorable Week 16 matchup against the Jaguars, making him a sack-dependent IDP option in championship week.
Mack (shoulder) is active Week 15 against the Vikings.
While Mack missed a bit of practice time this week, there never appeared to be much concern he would miss this must-win divisional tilt. Mack is coming off a two-tackle, one-sack performance last week, and had three tackles and an interception when he last faced the Vikings in Week 10.
Mack (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Vikings.
Mack followed a FP/DNP/LP practice regimen this week. The dominant pass rusher rarely misses time, and with a limited session to end the week, he seems to be on the right track for a must-win divisional contest Sunday. Mack has 1.5 sacks over his past three matchups against the Vikings.
Mack (shoulder) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice.
Mack practiced in full Wednesday, so it's somewhat worrying to see him absent Thursday. On the other hand, the Bears have regularly managed the star pass rusher's reps all season, so it's possible that his absence is once again maintenance-related.
Mack registered a safety, a sack, two tackles and a recovered fumble in Chicago's 36-7 win over the Texans on Sunday.
After notching 6.5 sacks over the first eight games of the season, these were the first two sacks he's recorded in five games, and his lack of consistent tackles gives him a very low weekly scoring floor in IDP leagues.
Mack (shoulder) has been deemed active for Sunday's game against Houston.
The three-time All-Pro battled through a back issue to suit up last Sunday against the Lions, ultimately fielding 81 percent of the defensive workload in a losing effort. A shoulder injury kept him out of practice Wednesday and Thursday, but partial participation from the 29-year-old Friday signaled he would have a chance to face Houston. Mack has sustained a high level of play this season overall, as he currently leads the NFC in Pro Bowl voting among outside linebackers. He does, however, carry a four-game sack drought into Week 14.
Mack (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against Houston but is expected to suit up, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Mack has consistently played through questionable tags all season while dealing with a back issue, and it appears that pattern is set to continue with this new shoulder injury. Despite his limitations due to injury, Mack has compiled a respectable 6.5 sacks this season, though he hasn't posted one since Week 8.
Mack (shoulder) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.
Mack has manged his practice reps during the season due to a back issue, as he seems to be dealing with a new injury. Per Adam Jahns of The Athletic, Mack is classified as day-to-day, so the issue doesn't appear to be too serious. Mack's participation level at practice during the rest of the week will be a better indicator of his chances to play Sunday against the Texans.
Mack (back) is active for Chicago's Week 13 matchup against the Lions.
The five-time Pro Bowler did not practice with the team Wednesday or Thursday, but he was able to log a limited session Friday. Mack also had his practice workload curtailed in late-October because of a back issue, but he still has not missed a game in 2020. He's gone three consecutive outings without a sack after posting five between Weeks 5 and 8.
Mack (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions.
The 29-year-old was unable to practice Wednesday and Thursday due to the back injury, but he was able to return as a limited participant Friday. Mack seems on track to be available for this weekend's divisional matchup, barring a setback.
Mack (back) did not practice Thursday.
Mack hasn't practice in any capacity this week, but it sounds like he still has a fair shot to suit up against the Lions on Sunday. Coach Matt Nagy called Mack's absence from practice "precautionary," per PrideOfDetroit.com. The star pass rusher has 6.5 sacks through 11 contests.
Mack (back) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.
Mack was a late add to the revised injury report Wednesday with the back issue, an injury that has forced him to miss practice time already this season. It's likely Mack's absence was due to soreness and it was more of a preventative measure, but it's unclear at this point. Mack's participation level at practice during the rest of the week will be a better indicator of his chances to play Sunday against the Lions.
Mack intercepted a pass and tallied three stops in the Bears' 19-13 loss to the Vikings on Monday.
Although Mack has posted between two and five tackles in each game this season, he's been a fantastic playmaker with 6.5 sacks, a pair of forced fumbles and now an interception. When used in IDP leagues as a linebacker, he's dependent upon those big plays because he has a low scoring floor when they don't occur.
Mack recorded a sack and five tackles in Chicago's 26-23 overtime loss to the Saints on Sunday.
Mack notched the only sack the Bears had in the game, and he's now posted at least one sack in four straight games, giving him 6.5 on the season. He's also tallied at least four tackles in each of the last three games, and although he's not the IDP legend he was a few years ago, as long as he stays hot, he's a solid fantasy option.
Mack (ankle) is active for Sunday's Week 8 tilt against the Saints.
The perennial Pro Bowler was trending in the right direction this weekend, and this officially confirms his availability. Mack has played his customary pivotal role in the heart of the Bears defense thus far this season, posting 25 tackles, 5.5 sacks, a fumble recovery and a forced fumble through seven games.
