Bears: Two-time All-Pro pass rusher Khalil Mack and top re­ceiver Allen Robin­son look as if they’re just about ready to re­turn af­ter miss­ing Chicago’s past two games be­cause of in­juries. Both play­ers prac­ticed with­out lim­i­ta­tions Thurs­day for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive day. The team hopes to have them back against the Detroit Lions on Sun­day. Jets: Sam Darnold will not start for the Jets on Sun­day against the Bills, head coach Todd Bowles told re­porters, but the rookie quar­ter­back has not been ruled out al­to­gether. Josh Mc­Cown will start for the Jets on Sun­day. Darnold, who is deal­ing with a right foot strain, did not prac­tice for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive day.

Raiders: Oak­land de­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor Paul Guen­ther de­nied there is any fric­tion be­tween him and coach Jon Gru­den and said the two re­main united in try­ing to im­prove a team that has been one of the big­gest dis­ap­point­ments in the NFL this sea­son. Cam­eras caught the two coaches get­ting into a heated ex­change af­ter a costly blown play in the Raiders’ 34-3 loss to San Fran­cisco a week ago. Obit: Wally Triplett, the trail­blaz­ing run­ning back who was one of the first African-Amer­i­cans drafted by an NFL team, has died. He was 92.
