Briggs, Clark 'probable' against Detroit


LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Bears linebacker Lance Briggs (ankle) and fullback Desmond Clark (ankle) are listed as probable heading into Sunday's matchup against Detroit, according to Bears head coach Lovie Smith.

Briggs missed over a week after injuring his ankle in the third preseason game versus Arizona, but the five-time Pro Bowler returned to practice on a limited basis Wednesday and Thursday.

Safety Craig Steltz (ankle) is listed as questionable to face the Lions. Steltz has been out of action since the first preseason game in San Diego.
