Chicago Bears

Aaron Lynch Downgraded to Out for Bears vs. Vikings

Lynch also missed last week's game against the 49ers

The Chicago Bears will be without at least one member of their defense on Sunday, as linebacker Aaron Lynch did not make the trip with the team to Minnesota.

Lynch, who is dealing with an elbow injury he suffered in the team’s Week 15 win over the Green Bay Packers, will miss his second straight game because of the injury.

Two other players that were listed as doubtful on the team’s Friday injury report did make the trip, but it’s still unclear if they will play against the Vikings. Safety Eddie Jackson, who missed last week’s game with an ankle injury, did not practice this week, and wide receiver Allen Robinson also missed all three of the team’s workouts because of a rib issue.

The Bears can still potentially clinch a first round bye with a win over the Vikings and a Rams loss to the 49ers. Both games will kick off at 3:25 p.m.
