LAKE FOREST, Ill. — The Chicago Bears’ defense took a huge hit Friday when coach Matt Nagy announced outside linebacker Khalil Mack would go on season-ending injured reserve due to a foot injury. Mack will have surgery next week, but Nagy did not specify the nature of the foot injury. Mack’s season ends with six sacks. Mack’s injury has been a problem since the Bears played Cleveland in Week 3, but he tried to play through it until going to the sidelines for the Oct. 31 game against San Francisco, and hasn’t returned. “I know with him, it’s been the last several weeks trying to get right,” Nagy said. “And I think we did everything as far as trying to attack it the right way with him. “I know he’s put a lot of time and energy in trying to get back and see where things are at. This is where we’re at.” Mack played through the injury against the Raiders, the Packers and then Oct. 24 against Tampa Bay. The Bears elevated outside linebacker Cassius Marsh from the practice squad and announced they signed veteran outside linebacker Bruce Irvin to their practice squad.
