Defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy’s arrival at practice Tuesday morning wasn’t the only news.
A nagging shoulder injury sidelined strong-side linebacker Hunter Hillenmeyer, who could miss a little more time this week. Cornerback Nathan Vasher got a visit from coach Lovie Smith during stretching drills, and he was participating in the workout in the Walter Payton Center.
Center Olin Kreutz and wide receiver Muhsin Muhammad got the practice off, as did defensive tackle Darwin Walker, who no longer has his left arm in a sling.
And quarterback Rex Grossman was moving around with just a slight limp and no knee brace. Grossman even played catch with Pep Hamilton before practice began.
More news later in the day.
