LT John Tait (sprained right ankle) and WR Bernard Berrian (sprained right toe) returned to practice for the first time this week, an indication both should be able to suit up Sunday vs. Minnesota. Also back to practice was DT Tommie Harris (sprained left knee).
Missing from practice again was LB Lance Briggs, who is resting his hamstring. LB Brian Urlacher (back), CB Charles Tillman (right ankle) and CB Nathan Vasher (groin) were also out. Urlacher has not practiced on a Friday yet this season.
