Chicago Bears Injury Report, Week 16: Devin Hester, Marion Barber Miss Practice On Thursday

The Chicago Bears have released their latest injury report, and in addition to Jay Cutler and Matt Forte -- both of whom are rehabbing serious injuries -- several other Bears were held out of practice on Thursday. Running back Marion Barber (calf), wide receiver Devin Hester (ankle) and linebacker Lance Briggs (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday.

Lovie Smith hopes to get Barber, Hester and Briggs back on the field Friday.

Tight end Kellen Davis (back) and defensive lineman Henry Melton (shin) returned to practice on a limited basis after being held out on Wednesday. And defensive end Julius Peppers fully participated after missing Wednesday's practice for reasons not related to injury.
