The Chicago Bears are navigating challenges in their linebacker unit, yet they expect to have a key defensive asset on the field against the Detroit Lions this coming weekend. Linebacker Jack Sanborn was unexpectedly absent from Friday's practice and is currently deemed questionable for the upcoming game. However, Head coach Matt Eberflus has expressed optimism regarding Sanborn's condition, noting his illness is improving and suggesting a positive outlook for his game-day status, as reported by Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times. Although Sanborn has been contending with an ankle issue, he was able to fully participate in Thursday's practice.

Sanborn's presence will be crucial for the Bears as they prepare to contend with Detroit's dynamic offense and cope with a depleted linebacker roster. Tremaine Edmunds, the starting middle linebacker, has been sidelined for the past few games with a knee injury and is listed as questionable after only a limited practice session this week. Additionally, rookie Noah Sewell is out with a knee injury.
Sanborn's contributions have been significant; he's currently tied for third in solo tackles on the team with 36, including three tackles for a loss, and has added an interception and two pass breakups to his season statistics. The Bears are set to face off against the Lions in Detroit at noon CT.
