Chicago Bears vs. Baltimore Ravens: Everything you need to know about the Week 11 game before kickoff

The Chicago Bears defense will try to slow down Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson — provided he’s healthy — without at least two key players Sunday at Soldier Field.

The Bears placed outside linebacker Khalil Mack on injured reserve Friday, and he will undergo season-ending surgery on his left foot this week. Defensive lineman Akiem Hicks also will miss the game because of an ankle injury.

And safety Eddie Jackson, who was limited in practice because of a hamstring injury, is questionable to play.

That could make it all the more difficult to stop Jackson — if he plays. Jackson missed Ravens practices Wednesday and Thursday with an illness but returned Friday. He is listed as questionable for the game, and ESPN reported Saturday night it was “50-50″ he would play.

Jackson has completed 199 of 309 passes (64.4%) for 2,447 yards, 14 touchdowns and eight interceptions and has rushed for 639 yards and two scores.

“When you have a significant player like Khalil (go out), the impact hits you harder, right?” coach Matt Nagy said. “But for the most part, we have a group of guys that are fighters, that battle, and you felt that all week long.”

Meanwhile, Bears quarterback Justin Fields will try to build on his season-best performance in a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 9. But the Bears offense could be without wide receiver Allen Robinson, who was listed as doubtful because of a hamstring injury.

“It’s really hard to replace somebody like A-Rob,” wide receiver Marquise Goodwin said. “Just a great talent. Great leader. Great person overall. What we can do is know our assignments and make plays when the ball comes our way, just like he does.”

Injury report

Along with Hicks, Jackson and Robinson, offensive lineman Elijah Wilkinson was listed on the Bears injury report with a back issue. He is questionable to play.

The Bears also declared running back Damien Williams doubtful to play because of a calf injury.

The Ravens had a long list of players on their injury report, including nose tackle Brandon Williams (shoulder), outside linebacker Pernell McPhee (knee) and wide receiver Miles Boykin (finger), and all have been declared out.

The Ravens also declared out wide receiver Marquise Brown with a thigh injury.
