Mack hasn’t played for the Bears since Week 7 of the season.
Chicago’s most feared pass rusher has yet to play in the team’s final two games before the bye.
Matt Nagy, the Bears’ head coach, said earlier this week that he hopes Mack will be able to return from his foot injury against the Ravens this Sunday.
Robinson, the Bears’ top receiver, suffered a hamstring injury in Week 9 against the Steelers.
The Pro Bowler is still nursing it even after the bye week.
Jimmy Graham, Akiem Hicks, Danny Trevathan, and Elijah Wilkinson were among the other Chicago players who did not play on Wednesday.
Limited patricipants included wide receiver Darnell Mooney, linebacker Alec Ogletree, and running back Damion Williams.
With the Ravens’ Lamar Jackson coming to town, the Bears could certainly use Khalil Mack on the edge. At 3-6, Chicago needs a win on Sunday to stay afloat in the NFC North.
On Wednesday, two key Bears players were absent from practice.
