CHICAGO (670 The Score) -- Star outside linebacker Khalil Mack and top receiver Allen Robinson have both been officially listed as active by the Bears for their game against the Patriots on Sunday.

The news, which wasn't a surprise, came 90 minutes prior to kickoff between the Bears and the Patriots. Neither Mack (right ankle) or Robinson (groin) were in serious doubt of missing this game, but were each listed as questionable after missing portions of practice this week.

Nickel cornerback Bryce Callahan (ankle) is also active after testing out his health before the game on Soldier Field. The Bears' inactives are defensive back Marcus Cooper, fullback Michael Burton, linebacker Kylie Fitts, offensive lineman Rashaad Coward, offensive lineman Bryan Witzmann, receiver Javon Wims and defensive lineman Nick Williams.

The Patriots will be without star tight end Rob Gronkowski, who was ruled inactive with a back and ankle injury. Gronkowski reportedly didn't travel with the team to Chicago.

Kickoff between the Bears (3-2) and Patriots (4-2) comes at noon CT from Soldier Field.
