(670 The Score) After missing the Bears' win in their season opener last Sunday because of an ankle injury, outside linebacker Robert Quinn took a positive step forward by practicing in full Friday.
Quinn was officially listed as questionable for Sunday, when the Bears (1-0) host the Giants (0-1) at Soldier Field. Quinn was limited in work Wednesday and Thursday.
The 30-year-old Quinn feels he's in "great shape." He called the ankle injury a "fluke" but declined to discuss his status for Sunday with any certainty. Quinn signed a five-year, $70-million deal with Chicago back in March.
Fellow Bears edge rusher Khalil Mack (knee) was also listed as questionable. He has been listed on the Bears' injury report as limited while managing the knee issue. Though he's listed as questionable, Mack indicated his availability isn't in doubt at all.
"I'm going to be ready on Sunday," Mack said.
Bears defensive lineman Akiem Hicks returned to practice Friday after dealing with an illness Thursday. He wasn't listed on the injury report.
