The good news for the Chicago Bears from the Payton Center on Thursday is Matt Forte and Charles Tillman returned to practice.
The bad news is Brian Urlacher remained out.
Also joining Urlacher on the sidelines were Chris Conte, who has a hamstring pull; Blake Costanzo, who has a calf injury; and Armando Allen, who has a knee injury.
Forte had his right ankle heavily taped.
Making a lot of progress, was able to get some reps in today, looked pretty good, Bears coach Lovie Smith said. Were hopeful for him, which we thought all along. I know hes been pretty optimistic about playing, so hopefully that will be the case.
Forte, Henry Melton (chest) and Tillman (ribs/elbow) were listed as limited participants in practice.
