Two key Chicago defenders were held out of practice on Tuesday, the Bears' only session of the week before their Thursday game at Green Bay. Vaughn McClure had the update on Twitter:
Urlacher was out today. Looks like Tillman didnt practice either.— vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) September 11, 2012
Brian Urlacher played 27 snaps on Sunday, after undergoing surgery on his left knee in the offseason. Head coach Lovie Smith rested him once the Bears built a 20-point lead early in the third quarter.
Charles Tillman left Sunday's game with a right shin injury in the first quarter, returned for a few plays, and then left for the locker room. Smith expects the veteran corner will be fine for Thursday; Kelvin Hayden backs up Tillman if that isn't the case.
