Bears Vs. Dolphins: Tuesday News And Notes

Bears Vs. Eagles Game Time Change: The NFL has announced that they have changed the time of the Nov. 28 game between the Bears and Eagles from noon to 3:15 CT to make it the featured network game on Fox.  This game has garnered more attention because the Bears are on two-game winning streak. And also, apparently the Eagles quarterback Michael Vick had a pretty decent outing last night against the Washington Redskins.

Home Cooking: Devin Hester is one kick return touchdown shy of breaking the all-time record. Right now he is tied with Brian Mitchell with 13. Hester is no stranger to Sun-Life Stadium, the Dolphins' home field is also the home of the University of Miami where Hester played in college. He'll have lots of family and friends from his home state there to cheer him on.

And he already knows the route, having taken the opening kickoff of Super Bowl XLI from one end zone, all the way to the other.

Injury Report: Everybody on the Chicago Bears roster practiced today, for the second day in a row. No mean feat, at this point in the season. CB Zack Bowman ( foot), WR Rashied Davis (quad), WR Johnny Knox (ankle), WR Devin Hester (shoulder), and LB Pisa Tinosamoa (knee) all were held to limited participation, but are all expected to be available Thursday.

For the Dolphins, C Joe Berger (knee), QB Chad Henne (knee), and S Chris Clemons (hamstring) all did not participate. OT Jake Long (shoulder), S Tyrone Cutler (ankle), WR Roberto Wallace (knee), all participated on a limited basis.

Although both were thought to be scratched for Thursday night, Chad Henne and Jake Long are rumored to be possibilities.
