Khalil Mack (foot) is out for the Bears' Week 9 matchup against the Steelers. Mack will miss a second straight game with a foot injury. There were whispers that the Bears could place their star linebacker on injured reserve, but they have not done so yet, indicating they believe he could be back within the next three weeks. It's a sizable hit to their pass rush for Week 9, especially considering they're playing a fairly weak Steelers offensive line.

Speaking Saturday, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin assured reporters that Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder) will play on Monday night. Roethlisberger's addition to the injury report for this new shoulder ailment came as a bit of a surprise, but he's been on the report while dealing with other ailments for most of the season. He's going to need to be managed to make it through the season. Roethlisberger won't be a recommended play against the Bears this week.
