Orton expected to be probable for Sunday's game

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Kyle Orton announced after practice Friday that he will be probable for Sunday's game at Green Bay, meaning the Bears' quarterback will return to the starting lineup after missing one game with a right ankle injury.

Orton worked with the first team again in the short practice at Halas Hall and will test out the ankle again Saturday in a brief walk-through before the team travels by bus to Green Bay.

"Kyle looked better today than he did [Thursday],'' coach Lovie Smith said. ``So we're keeping our fingers crossed with him. See how it goes for him [Saturday], but he's gotten better each day, there's no reason to think that won't continue [through] Sunday.''

Cornerback Charles Tillman (shoulder) is also expected to be listed as probable when the official injury report comes out in a few hours. Linebacker Hunter Hillenmeyer (right thumb) will also be probable.

Atta boy! Orton is a trooper and quite frankley may just be worthy of that long-term contract. Hopefully Lloyd will be on the straight and narrow because he certainly is a great weopon for Orton. But coming from a moral standpoint if Lloyd turns out to be troublesome, we should get rid of him before he creates a Burress incident where he gets a tremendous deal and acts like a petulant child. I think that we have the potential for a deadly offense with Orton and the WR combo of Lloyd, Davis, Hester and appearently Forte (who is also a great RB). Then again that is my opinion I could be wrong. Go Bears!!!!
