Thursday’s practice update

The Bears are getting healthier. DT Tommie Harris (hamstring) returned to practice at Halas Hall, leaving CB Nathan Vasher as the only player to sit out.

DT Darwin Walker (left knee) and LG Ruben Brown (shoulder), who each participated in portions of Wednesday’s workout, were dressed and practicing also.

Updating: Harris participated in portions of the practice, as did Walker. Brown was a full-go in practice.

For Philadelphia, LT William Thomas (knee) was held out. He’s still expected to start. S Brian Dawkins (neck) did some work in practice, although the prevailing thought is he probably won’t go Sunday. TE L.J. Smith (hernia) remained out.
