LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears veteran center Olin Kreutz returned to practice in limited fashion on Friday.

Kreutz sat out the previous two days because of a tight hamstring, but he is expected to make his 127th consecutive start for the Bears Sunday versus Minnesota.

"This time of year no one's at full strength," Kreutz said. "I'm not concerned about it. You just show up and play."

Asked if there's anything that can keep him out of a game, Kreutz said: "Let's not find out."

Kreutz and cornerback Zack Bowman are both listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Minnesota.

Bowman was limited in practice all three days this week, but said Thursday he planned to play versus the Vikings.
