Terrence Metcalf, who underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee 27 days ago, is expected to return to practice this afternoon for the first time since suffering swelling in his knee in training camp.
Metcalf missed the entire preseason and could be out of the running to start at left guard Sunday at Indianapolis. He had hoped to get some action last Thursday at Cleveland but could not return in time.
Practice begins in about 20 minutes and we'll have some updates as the afternoon goes on. The Bears will not have to release an injury report until Wednesday.
