LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- After sitting out Wednesday with a groin injury, Bears middle linebacker Hunter Hillenmeyer is set to return to the practice field on Thursday.
"Just got an extra day of rest in yesterday," Hillenmeyer said. "I'm full go in practice today."
Fellow linebacker Lance Briggs is expected to practice for a second consecutive day, and is expected to start Sunday versus Green Bay.
"I think so," Briggs responded when asked if was playing Sunday. "I'm practicing a lot more this week than last week. If it's up to me, I'm playing every week."
