Thursday Tweets: Chicago Bears Press Conference and Practice Updates

New, comments

The Chicago Bears held their second practice of the week in preparation for the St. Louis Rams, and afterwards a few of them met the media. Here's are some injury updates and some highlights via Twitter.

Rob Grabowski-USA TODAY Sports

First off we'll hit the injury news for the Chicago Bears.

Neither Jay Cutler, Lance Briggs, or Jeremiah Ratliff will play Sunday against the St. Louis Rams, although Ratliff has been practicing in a limited capacity. The unofficial buzz from Halas Hall, is that they are shooting for the Monday Night game against the Dallas Cowboys for his Bears debut.

Also limited at practice was safety Craig Steltz (concussion), and nickleback Isaiah Frey (broken hand). It's expected that Frey will try to go Sunday, even with a cast on his hand.

Defensive end Shea McClellin was full go at practice today, as was long snapper extraordinaire Patrick Mannelly and right tackle Jordan Mills.

Defensive tackle Stephen Paea missed practice again today.

Now on to some Tweets.
