Game status: Robinson and Patterson are both ACTIVE for Week 16.

Game day update: Allen Robinson is expected to play, per Ian Rapoport. There is no word yet on Patterson.

The Chicago Bears enter their Week 16 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars with a pair of key offensive skill players listed as questionable. However, the outlook for wide receiver Allen Robinson and running back Cordarrelle Patterson is trending in opposite directions ahead of Sunday’s game.

Fantasy impact: Allen Robinson (hamstring), Cordarrelle Patterson (knee)

Robinson, who had 85 yards on just four catches last week, is dealing with a hamstring injury. He was held out of practice on Thursday, but returned in a limited role on Friday. The team indicated that it was just a precautionary measure, so he should be good to go in a tasty matchup against the Jaguars.

Patterson is still dealing with a knee injury he suffered in last week’s game against the Vikings. He hasn’t practiced all week, which does not bode well for his availability on Sunday. If he’s out of action, that increases David Montgomery’s fantasy value, as he won’t cede any touches to Patterson.
