Bennett, Tillman return to practice

The Chicago Bears got healthier today with Charles Tillman, Stephen Paea and Martellus Bennett all practicing in a limited capacity. Full Week 7 Thursday injury report below.

Outside of the players already on injured reserve, the Chicago Bears could be playing with all of their active players this weekend - that doesn't include LB D.J. Williams, who has not yet been officially placed on IR.

Limited in practice today were CB Charles Tillman (knee), TE Martellus Bennett (knee), DT Stephen Paea (toe) and LB James Anderson (back). All players have a good shot at playing on Sunday.

LB Lance Briggs is not on the injury report but he was visibly ill during today's press conference and said he was dealing with a cold bug.

Chicago's opponent this weekend, the Washington Redskins, are a very healthy team. Their entire team practiced in full today, including TE Fred Davis (ankle), LB Brandon Jenkins (ankle), C Will Montgomery (knee), CB Jerome Murphy (ankle), NT Chris Nelid (calf) and TE Logan Paulsen (knee).

The only limited participant was CB David Amerson (concussion).
