| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Bears coach Lovie Smith said receiver Earl Bennett will not play Saturday in the preseason opener against the San Diego Chargers.

"But for the most part we should have most of our guys ready to go."

Bennett has been sidelined the last few days with a hamstring injury. He's currently listed as the fifth receiver on a depth chart released by the team.

Smith said running back Kahlil Bell also has a hamstring injury.

"Hopefully, he'll be ready to play for the game," Smith said of Bell, currently the third-string running back.

In other injury news, Smith said tight end Kellen Davis has a minor back injury but should play Saturday.

* Safety Danieal Manning returned to practice.

* Linebackers Hunter Hillenmeyer, Brian Iwuh and Pisa Tinoisamoa, receiver Greg Matthews and running back Harvey Unga among those not practicing Wednesday.
