(670 The Score) The Bears listed star pass rusher Khalil Mack and top nickel cornerback Buster Skrine as questionable against the Rams on Monday night, but both are trending toward playing.

Mack practiced in a limited fashion Saturday after being sidelined Friday due to back soreness. Skrine also returned to practice in a limited role while nursing an ankle issue.

Bears star defensive lineman Akiem Hicks was cleared and practiced in full Saturday after being kept away from the team with a cold, a precautionary measure taken as part of the COVID-19 protocols. Hicks wasn't listed on the injury report for Monday.

The Bears ruled out special teams ace Sherrick McManis with a hamstring injury. The team listed guard Rashaad Coward (finger), tackle Jason Spriggs (thumb/back) and safety Deon Bush (hamstring) as questionable.

Kickoff between the Bears (5-1) and Rams (4-2) is set for 7:15 p.m. CT on Monday from SoFi Stadium.
