Wednesday practice update: Urlacher has minor calf injury

The Bears finished their preparation for Thursdays game with a workout this morning at Halas Hall before departing for OHare.

Middle linebacker Brian Urlacher popped up on the injury report with a new injury. He injured his calf in practice Tuesday and left the field early. He participated in todays activities, though, and is listed as probably meaning he will start. Urlacher has been plagued since training camp with a chronic arthritic condition in his back.

Right tackle Fred Miller (right ankle) also practiced and is probable so he will return to the starting lineup after John St. Clair replaced him for one game.

Strong-side linebacker Hunter Hillenmeyer (shoulder) is also probable and will start. Defensive back Corey Graham, who has been performing well on special teams, has not been on the injury report despite spraining his right ankle against the Giants, so he should be ready to go.

Defensive tackle Anthony Adams (right elbow) and cornerback Nathan Vasher (groin) will not play./
