You would have to think that with cornerback Nathan Vasher (partially torn groin muscle) on the sideline for Wednesday’s practice that the veteran will now miss his seventh consecutive game.
Vasher has been sidelined for nearly two months and at this point the possibility has to exist that he could eventually land on injured reserve, especially if the Bears don’t go on a winning streak soon.
This means rookie seventh-round pick Trumaine McBride is likely to start in what should be his biggest test of the season against a Seattle offense directed by quarterback Matt Hasselbeck.
Also out for practice were: RT Fred Miller, DT Darwin Walker, SLB Hunter Hillenmeyer and of course QB Brian Griese.
Returning to practice were linebacker Rod Wilson, who sat out Sunday’s game with a sore neck, and CB Ade Jimoh, who was knocked out of Sunday’s game with what he called a concussion. S Brandon McGowan, who has missed the past few weeks with a right elbow injury, also appeared to be back in the mix.
UPDATING: DT Tommie Harris (left knee) was also held out of practice.
Hillenmeyer’s injury is listed as a foot. Fred Miller is bothered by a right ankle injury. Darwin Walker’s left knee is the reason for him being sidelined.
McGowan had limited participation in practice.
