Chicago Bears linebacker Lance Briggs practiced with the first team Wednesday, but was limited according to the team. Briggs has missed two months with a shoulder injury, but head coach Marc Trestman is still hopefull he'll be able to make his return Sunday night against the Philadelphia Eagles.
“It’s still day-to-day,” Trestman said, according to ESPNChicago.com. “I’m optimistic he’ll play. How much? We’ll see how he feels. I’d be better to answer that question after Friday’s practice, maybe even going into Sunday. But he did get some work today and I talked to him after he said he felt pretty good so we’ll see where he is tomorrow.”
Briggs had 75 tackles and two sacks when he fractured his shoulder on October 10th. The Bears defense has struggled, and has fallen to the bottom of the NFL in most defensive statistics.
Briggs is expected to speak with reporters after Thursday's practice.Read more... Join the Conversation...
