Bears expected to have Khalil Herbert and Cole Kmet vs. Packers

The Chicago Bears are gearing up for their regular season finale against the hated Green Bay Packers, where they’re looking to end the year on a high note.

The Bears are looking to snap a nine-game losing streak against the Packers, while also keeping their arch-rivals out of the postseason. The good news is they’ll have two important offensive players ready to go.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, running back Khalil Herbert and tight end Cole Kmet are expected to play against the Packers. Herbert is nursing a back injury while Kmet has been dealing with a knee injury.

Kmet has had a career year with the Bears, where he has 70 catches for 678 yards and six touchdowns. He’s been one of quarterback Justin Fields’ most dependable weapons, and he’ll be key in this passing game.

Meanwhile, Herbert is coming off back-to-back 100-yard rushing games, and he’ll be a big part of their offensive gameplan as Chicago looks to play spoiler to Green Bay.

The Bears and Packers kick things off at 3:25 p.m. on CBS.
