Notes: WR Earl Bennett (concussion), RB Michael Bush (ribs) DE Shea McClellin (knee) and DT Henry Melton (chest) did not practice, along with Jennings and Urlacher. Smith said Melton was excused for personal reasons. Briggs (knee, hip), TE Kellen Davis (knee), LB Geno Hayes (knee), OT Jonathan Scott (shoulder) and DT Matt Toeaina (knee) were limited. G Chris Spencer (knee) was a full participant after sitting out the past two games, as were Stephen Paea (foot) and Charles Tillman (shoulder).
