Jordan Mills, Eben Britton move closer to returning for Bears

The Bears didn’t practice at Halas Hall on Monday, but with a game on Thursday against the Detroit Lions, there was an injury report to update.

According to the Bears’ official estimations, offensive linemen Jordan Mills (ribs) and Eben Britton (recent appendectomy) would have had full participation if the team had practiced.

Michael Ola has started the last two games at right tackle in place of Mills, while rookie Charles Leno has handled Britton’s “jumbo tight end” position.

The Bears, though, did have a long list of players who would have missed practice on Monday: linebacker Lance Briggs (groin), cornerback Kyle Fuller (knee), guard/center Brian de la Puente (ankle), defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff (knee), defensive end Trevor Scott (knee), linebacker Daryl Sharpton (hamstring) and kick returner Chris Williams (hamstring).

Scott, Sharpton and Williams were inactive against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers because of their injuries.

Receiver Brandon Marshall (ankle) and safety Brock Vereen (shoulder) would have been limited at practice.
