Bears' Khalil Mack (ankle) 'unlikely' to play vs. Bills, report says

Bears' Khalil Mack 'day-to-day' with ankle injury

Bears defensive end Khalil Mack is “unlikely” to play Sunday against the Bills, according to ESPN.

Mack is dealing with a sprained ankle. He played a limited amount of snaps two weeks ago against the Patriots, and didn’t see any action against the Jets. 

Chicago has not made a final decision on whether Mack will play or not — the teams wants to evaluate him before the game before making that choice — but it sounds like Mack is a long shot to play.

The 2016 Defensive Player of the Year has 16 tackles, five sacks and four forced fumbles this season.

The Bears will be taking on the Bills with a backup quarterback Sunday since Derek Anderson was ruled out with a concussion. Nathan Peterman will get the start.
