Linebacker Lance Briggs (groin) did not practice at all this week, and he will miss Thursday's game. He was injured last Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he suggested a couple days ago he could miss "a few weeks".
Center Brian de la Puente (ankle) has been placed on injured reserve, and he'll miss the rest of the season. Linebacker Darryl Sharpton (hamstring) and wide receiver Chris Williams (hamstring) will also miss Thursday's game.
Listed as doubtful for the Bears are defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff (knee) and defensive end Trevor Scott (knee).
The only Bear listed as questionable is cornerback Kyle Fuller (knee), who suffered a minor medial collateral ligament sprain last Sunday. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports has suggested the team expects the rookie to play on Thursday.
Wide receiver Brandon Marshall (ankle) is listed as probable for Thursday, as is safety Brock Vereen (shoulder), offensive tackle Jordan Mills (ribs) and offensive guard Ebon Britton (illness). Marshall has been limited in practice all week, but his fantasy owners can safely get him into their lineups. Mills has missed the last two games, but he looks likely to be back in action for Chicago on Thursday after practicing fully throughout the week.
