LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bears receiver Allen Robinson had a tough time coming to grips with the fact that there was no game to prepare for this week when he woke up Monday morning.
"Pretty crazy," he said.
Safety Adrian Amos figured the Bears would be planning for their next opponent, not cleaning out their lockers.
"Things happen, you know, time to take it in, put it behind you and start working for next year," he said.
CHICAGO (AP) — Mitchell Trubisky locked in right from the start, whether he was firing downfield or making the right read underneath the defense.
It added up to one of his best performances as a pro, not to mention a rare win for Chicago against Detroit and an NFC North rival.
Trubisky threw for a career-high 355 yards and three touchdowns, and the first-place Bears beat the Lions 34-22 to snap a 10-game losing streak against division opponents on Sunday.
CHICAGO (AP) — Glover Quin had a chance to stop Anthony Miller. He ended up on the ground on the sideline, watching as Miller sped toward the end zone.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Khalil Mack will save some secrets for the Detroit Lions on Sunday at Soldier Field.
Asked if he would be 100 percent healthy or hindered by the sprained right ankle he suffered Oct. 14, the Chicago Bears' pass rusher smiled on Friday, but hedged.
"You want me to give up everything?" Mack said. "When I get there, I'm going to try to be myself."
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — 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 the Chicago Bears' past two games because of injuries.
Both players practiced without limitations Thursday for the second consecutive day.
The NFC North-leading Bears hope to have them back in the lineup against the Detroit Lions at Soldier Field on Sunday.
Star linebacker Khalil Mack is missing his second straight game for Chicago Bears, who will face turnover-prone Nathan Peterman after the Buffalo Bills ruled out quarterback Derek Anderson because of a concussion.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears placed right guard Kyle Long on injured reserve Saturday because of a tendon injury in his right foot.
The move means the NFC North-leading Bears (4-3) will be without Long for at least eight weeks.
The three-time Pro Bowl lineman was injured in the closing minutes of the Bears' 24-10 victory over the New York Jets last weekend. Tight end Dion Sims rolled into Long while the two were blocking for Jordan Howard on a run.
CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Bears got the win they sorely needed, only to lose another key player.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Whether they were loading up around Mitchell Trubisky or swinging a last-minute blockbuster trade for Khalil Mack, the offseason was all about the quarterback for the Chicago Bears.
Develop their own — and harass their opponent's.
Now, it's time to see how it all comes together. But the Bears sure look like they are poised for bigger things after four straight last-place finishes in the NFC North.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Matt Nagy read off the numbers almost like the winning lottery ticket: 12-80-10.
BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears anticipated wide receiver Allen Robinson would need time to assume a role as quarterback Mitchell Trubisky's No. 1 target.
Considering where the Bears passing game was last season, they expected this wait to be worthwhile.
Robinson continues to work at a slower, steadier pace through his first live practices since suffering a torn left anterior cruciate ligament, and hopes to reach a point where he and Trubisky click in the passing offense.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have some needs to address during the second day of the NFL draft.
The Jaguars selected Florida's Taven Bryan with the 29th pick in the first round Thursday night, adding to an already stout defensive front.
Top executive Tom Coughlin and general manager Dave Caldwell insisted they drafted the best player available, choosing Bryan instead of filling holes. Plugging those spots should come next.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Allen Robinson sees no reason he can't regain the form that made him a Pro Bowl receiver and help the Chicago Bears snap a string of losing seasons.
He insisted the ACL he tore in his left knee in last year's opener with Jacksonville is coming along just fine. And he expects to be "fully cleared" for training camp.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Donte Moncrief is gladly gambling on himself.
The former Indianapolis Colts receiver signed a one-year, $7 million contract with AFC South rival Jacksonville on Thursday, believing he will prove he's worth a more lucrative, long-term deal.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears have agreed to a contract with former Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Allen Robinson, hoping he can form a dynamic tandem with quarterback Mitchell Trubisky and help energize a stagnant passing game.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — If Allen Robinson remains in Jacksonville, it won't be as one of the highest-paid receivers in the league.
The Jaguars declined to use the franchise or transition tag on Robinson, stirring questions about his future. NFL teams had until Tuesday afternoon to tag pending free agents, but Jacksonville executives told Robinson long before the deadline he would not be tagged.
The list of players sitting out this weekend's conference championships is almost as impressive as the starting lineups: Julian Edelman. Carson Wentz. Dalvin Cook. Dont'a Hightower. Allen Robinson. Sam Bradford.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Allen Hurns is expected to play in the regular-season finale at Tennessee, his first action since Nov. 12.
Hurns missed the last six games because of a high-ankle sprain. He was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday, but was removed from the injury report Friday.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Dede Westbrook's role with the Jacksonville Jaguars has changed dramatically in the last six weeks.
Even the rookie receiver has been surprised by his rapid rise.
"I never thought in my first year I'd be teaching another guy the playbook," Westbrook said Thursday.
Jacksonville's slew of injuries at the position has Westbrook and fellow rookie Keelan Cole doing more than anyone expected.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have lost another receiver for the season.
Jaelen Strong said Monday he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee at San Francisco. Strong announced the news in two Instagram posts, saying "this lil setback setting me up for a greater comeback."
Strong caught three passes for 38 yards and a touchdown in a 44-33 loss to the 49ers. It was his debut with the team.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Allen Hurns has missed a fourth consecutive practice and is unlikely to play at Arizona.
Hurns was wearing a walking boot on his sprained right ankle Tuesday.
Hurns injured his ankle while making a 6-yard catch against the Los Angeles Chargers on Nov. 12. It's a significant setback for a team already playing without its top receiver, Allen Robinson. Robinson is out for the season after tearing a ligament in his left knee in the opener.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without receiver Allen Hurns at winless Cleveland on Sunday, a potentially significant setback for a team already playing without Allen Robinson.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have promoted receiver Jaydon Mickens to the active roster and waived receiver Max McCaffrey.
The 5-foot-11 Mickens was originally signed by Oakland as an undrafted rookie in May. He spent the entire 2016 season on Oakland's practice squad, was waived in final cuts and signed to Jacksonville's practice squad two weeks later.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Allen Robinson is gaining contract leverage while on crutches.
The Jaguars (2-2) are tied for the most dropped passes in the AFC with seven, including a costly one by Marqise Lee in last week's overtime loss at the New York Jets.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jaguars have claimed receiver Jaelen Strong off waivers from the Houston Texans, providing them some much-needed depth with Allen Robinson and rookie Dede Westbrook on injured reserve.
The make room on the roster, the Jaguars placed defensive tackle Michael Bennett on IR with a pectoral muscle injury.
Fantasy football defenses dominated in Week 1, while several usually dependable producers like Julio Jones and Le'Veon Bell underperformed. Setting a lineup will be challenging this week due to major injuries to early picks like David Johnson and Allen Robinson, but here are some suggestions that'll help you in Week 2.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars receivers Allen Robinson and Dede Westbrook are recovering from surgery.
