Bears’ Khalil Mack out against 49ers

Photo by Chris Unger/ The superstar pass rusher is being given some time to rest a nagging foot injury. An extended absence isn’t out of the question. It’s been bothering him all season, and the Bears have seen enough. Khalil Mack will miss Chicago’s contest against the 49ers this Sunday so he can rest a pervasive foot injury, reports NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. For most of the year, Mack has been mainly playing through the injury, appearing as questionable or a limited participant in most injury reports throughout weeks before participating in games.

Why its time to start questioning Kyle Shanahan’s vision for the 49ers

Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports Kyle Shanahan’s still the right man for the job, but his coaching has been lackluster in 2021. As the 2020 season ended in Arizona, I thought the 49ers had the best man for the head-coaching job. But, instead, the injury-riddled team was kicked out of their home county and played out of their suitcases in Phoenix for the last month of the season. The 2020 49ers consistently played with effort, looked well-coached, but just lacked talent at key spots to overcome some mistakes. While there were a ton of free agents and questions surrounding...
