The Chicago Bears received some bad news today about wide out Marquess Wilson.

For more on his injury and possible recovery time, head over here.

In other injury news, Lance Briggs limped off the field after knocking knees with a teammate, with what they are calling a knee bruise. Tim Jennings is still resting his quad and Eben Britton is sitting out with his hamstring. Chris Conte and Craig Steltz are still sidelined as well.

Running back Shaun Draughn missed the majority of today's practice and defensive end Jared Allen was absent.

Kyle Long was a full participant at practice and back at his starting right guard position.

On defense it was Adrian Wilson and Ryan Mundy starting at safety.

Rookie Kyle Fuller was in a scuffle with tight end Martellus Bennett, but once practice wrapped they shared a high-five. Here are a few tweets about the incident.
