The latest Chicago Bears injury report has been released by the team, and while there hasn't been much in the way of encouraging news on this front for the organization of late, it looks like wide receiver Devin Hester's (ankle) condition is improving. Hester was limited in Wednesday's workouts but fully participated on Thursday. Defensive end Julius Peppers returned to practice after missing on Wednesday for reasons not related to injury.
Linebacker Brian Urlacher (knee), running back Marion Barber (calf) and tight end Kellen Davis (illness) were held out of practice for the second straight day. Linebacker Lance Briggs (ankle) was limited, while defensive end Corey Wootton (concussion), linebacker Nick Roach (shin) and center Chris Spencer (back) were full participants on Thursday.
