Desmond Clark’s rapid return from broken rib continues

SHARE Desmond Clark’s rapid return from broken rib continues

Chances are improved that tight end Desmond Clark will return from a broken rib after missing only two games. Clark is expected to have full participation in practice this afternoon when the Bears get going in about an hour. Clark has had two days of limited practice–Wednesday and last Friday.

Running back Matt Forte (knee) is also expected to have full participation after being limited on Wednesday.

Linebacker Lance Briggs (foot) will also return to practice on a limited basis today. The same goes for long snapper Pat Mannelly (arm) and defensive linemen Israel Idonije (knee), Anthony Adams (knee) and Alex Brown (ankle).

Linebackers Pisa Tinoisamoa (knee) and Hunter Hillenmeyer (rib) are out and it looks less likely they will be available Sunday.
