    The Chicago Bears have a lengthy injury report on Thursday, and questions are percolating about whether they’ll be without numerous key players in their upcoming game against the Buffalo Bills.

    Offensive lineman Kyle Long, who was injured late in their win over the New York Jets, did not practice with a foot injury, and the team is currently evaluating whether to put him on injured reserve, according to head coach Matt Nagy.

    Linebacker Khalil Mack and wide receiver Allen Robinson, both of whom were inactive against the Jets, missed their second straight practice on Thursday, and their status for Sunday’s Bills game is up in the air, and the Bears could be without them once again Sunday.

    Defensive lineman Bilal Nichols was a new addition to the injury report, as he’s dealing with a knee issue. A key pass rusher with Mack out of the lineup, missing Nichols could be a big blow to a Bears defense that is struggling in that department in recent weeks.

    Offensive lineman Ben Braunecker remains in the NFL’s concussion protocol after suffering the injury during Sunday’s game against the Jets.

    Wide receiver Taylor Gabriel was a full participant in practice after being limited on Wednesday with a knee injury, and offensive lineman Eric Kush remained a limited participant with a neck issue, but is expected to play Sunday.
