Center Olin Kreutz sat out practice today for the second time this week as he missed the short, 75-minute practice on Monday. He has a back/rib injury, and would be replaced by Josh Beekman if he couldn't play. But coach Lovie Smith referenced Kreutz's track record of durability when he said he expects Kreutz to play Sunday night.
