Bears Vs. Vikings: Thursday News And Notes

Injury Report:  Olin Kreutz was held out of practice for the second time this week, with hamstring problems. Coach Lovie Smith expressed confidence in his return tomorrow. Lance Louis filled in at center for practice today.

Cornerback Zack Bowman saw limited participation, as he returns from a neck stinger, and fellow cornerbacks D.J. Moore and Tim Jennings returned to full participation.

The Minnesota Vikings held Brett Favre to limited participation, nursing ankle and foot problems. Also seeing limited duty were tackle Phil Loadholt (knee) and defensive tackle Pat Williams.

Corner Asher Allen (concussion), wide receiver Percy Harvin (ankle/ migraine), and safety Jamarca Sanford (hamstring) were all held out for the second day.

Insult to injury: Former Jets sideline reporter Jenn Sterger met with NFL investigators today, allegedly with evidence of her claims of harrassment against then Jets quarter back Brett Favre. She was accompanied by both her lawyer and manager.

Injured and insulting: Viking DT Pat Williams had plenty of sharp words for former teammate and current Bear Chester Taylor. Chicago Breaking Sports quoted Williams as saying (among other things), "Chester don't even start, so we don't worry about him right now. He ain't the starting running back. He's the backup, so we're going to try and put the other back out and put Chester in there. At the end of the day, we don't worry about Chester."
