Despite dropping five straight games, the Chicago Bears are still fighting to stay alive in the NFC wild card race as they head into a crucial Week 13 matchup against the Detroit Lions.

Some great news broke ahead of that matchup on Sunday morning, as it turns out star wideout Allen Robinson (knee; questionable) is expected to play.

Robinson injured his knee at practice this week, and was removed for precautionary reasons. Getting the positive update overnight (before he has gone through pre-game warmups) is a great sign that he's close to full health and won't be limited by the injury.

With Mitchell Trubisky still starting at QB, it's safe to assume A-Rob will play a massive role in the Chicago offense on Sunday.

In Trubisky's three full games this season (Weeks 1, 2 and 12), Robinson has seen a combined 31 targets — with an average of 10.3 per game that beats his average of 9.6 across the eight other games.

FanDuel Sportsbook's Week 13 NFL odds have the Bears as 3-point home favorites for this must-win NFC North clash.
