Chicago receiver Brandon Lloyd returned to the practice field Monday, according to the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times, but it's not yet clear whether he'll be ready to play Sunday against Detroit.

Lloyd was the Bears' leading receiver when he sprained his knee Sept. 21 against Philadelphia. He has since missed three games.

Despite Lloyd's injury, the Bears have emerged as one of the NFL's better passing teams. The trio of Marty Booker, Rashied Davis and Devin Hester have filled in well behind him. Chicago quarterback Kyle Orton also is making liberal use of tight ends Desmond Clark and Greg Olsen.

Because we care, here are the Bears' receiving breakdown in the three games since Lloyd was injured:
