Mack had little interest in discussing his ankle with the media on Friday, passing on answering questions about his readiness for New England. Chicago cruised to a win in the first of those games (48-10 over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers) before falling to the Miami Dolphins 31-28 in overtime last Sunday.

Still, even if it is an 80% Mack, Mack is going to play and at 80% is probably still one of the five best pass rushers in the NFL. And it appears Belichick has someone who agrees with that take: Lawrence Taylor.

"This", Brady said, "is the best defense we've played in a long time".

Speaking Friday at Gillette Stadium, Brady had tremendous praise for the Bears defense, which he will be going up against Sunday in Chicago. Danny Trevathan, I've always thought he was a great player.

"You could say all of that but ultimately (Brady's) a gamer", Mack said. "They've got weapons over the top". The second-year starter is in rare company, joining Kirk Cousins and Drew Brees as the only quarterbacks in the league with a 70-plus completion percentage and a 100-plus quarterback rating.

The team has already ruled Marcus Cannon out for Sunday's matchup at Soldier Field. And then you add [Khalil] Mack and [Leonard] Floyd, Akiem Hicks, really stout front.

Nagy called Callahan's absence "precautionary" and said Robinson not practicing after being limited Thursday wasn't an indication of a setback. He's officially questionable for Sunday.

Mack has five sacks, four forced fumbles and one interception return for a touchdown for the 3-2 Bears.

Cornerback Bryce Callahan is also questionable after missing Friday's practice because of an ankle injury from Thursday's practice. While his numbers aren't eye-popping (11 catches on 16 targets, 111 yards, 1 TD), New England's offense has scored 38 and 43 points in his two games back. "It's a big part of their offense". We've talked a lot about playing on the road this week and kind of what we need to do to get a win.

While declining to discuss anything related to the injury, Mack seemed to indicate he expects to play.
