The good news continued to trickle out of Halas Hall today as all three injured Chicago Bear wide outs were again practicing. Alshon Jeffery (calf), Eddie Royal (hip) and Marquess Wilson (hamstring) were all limited participants during today's practice. The biggest difference from yesterday to today was Jeffery working out in full gear. Yesterday he was in shorts, but today he was all padded up and practicing in the rain.
If the coaching staff feared a setback by Jeffery, I doubt they'd allow him to work out in sloppy conditions.
I'm starting to think he'll play on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.
When asked about Jeffery's status, head coach John Fox didn't give the standard 'day to day,' instead he went with, "He looks pretty functional. He looks good. we're just taking it one day at a time and see what that brings us."
We'll have to wait and see what happens tomorrow when the Bears hold their final full practice of the week, and when they are mandated to list all injured players as questionable, probable, doubtful or out.
By the way, Fox elected to hold his meeting with the media outside in the rain. "Yeah, spread the wealth here. I've been out there for two hours," while offensive coordinator Adam Gase chose to call the media inside for his press conference.
The entire injury report remained unchanged from yesterday. Outside linebacker Sam Acho (illness) and cornerback Tracy Porter (hamstring) were held out, while left tackle Jermon Bushrod (back), nose tackle Eddie Goldman (concussion) and quarterback Jimmy Clausen (concussion) all participated in full.
The Packers have had one player not practice all week, starting safety Morgan Burnett has been suffering with a calf injury.
