LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears receiver Brandon Marshall returned to practice Friday and participated fully after the club held him out of Thursday’s workout because of his strained quadriceps.

In addition, safety Major Wright participated fully Friday after being limited the day before, which means it’s likely he’ll start in Monday night’s game against the Dallas Cowboys. Linebacker Lance Briggs (shoulder) did not practice Friday, while quarterback Jay Cutler (ankle) and safety Anthony Walters (groin) took part in a limited capacity.

“Lance didn’t practice today. He was out there running around a little bit,” Bears coach Marc Trestman said. “Jay was limited, you saw that. Anthony Walters was limited, but looks better. Kyle [Long], Major and Brandon all worked. So that was good.”

For Dallas, cornerback Morris Claiborne (hamstring) and receiver Dwayne Harris (hamstring) were held out of practice.

Receiver Dez Bryant (back), linebacker Justin Durant (hamstring), tight end Gavin Escobar (hamstring) and defensive tackle Jason Hatcher (neck) participated full for the Cowboys, along with linebackers DeVonte Holloman (neck) and Sean Lee (hamstring).
