Brian Griese was wearing his helmet at the start of Thursday's practice, a good sign he will be participating in at least portions of the workout.
CB Nathan Vasher, who has missed the last six games, was also stretching as if he was going to participate.
RT Fred Miller, LB Hunter Hillenmeyer and DT Darwin Walker also returned to practice.
It appeared that DT Tommie Harris (left knee) was absent again.
UPDATE: As we reported, Harris was the only player to miss practice.
Griese, Hillenmeyer, Miller, Vasher and Walker all participated on a limited basis according to the injury report just released. Safety Brandon McGowan (right elbow) als participated in the workout on a limited basis.
