Jay Cutler didn't let the slow, steady rain that fell during Tuesday night's practice at Olivet Nazarene University prevent him from making several of his patented strong tosses, including a perfectly thrown over-the-shoulder beauty that tight end Greg Olsen caught deep downfield between two defenders. Cutler also threaded the needle to Rashied Davis a split second before the receiver collided with a defender. Lance Briggs made a nice play when he made a leaping deflection of a Cutler pass near the line of scrimmage.
Here are some of the other things that jumped out at me:
* Matt Forte took a quick pitch on a misdirection play and sprinted down the left sideline untouched against the first-team defense.
*Linebacker Brian Iwuh had another strong day, following up the two interceptions he made Monday with two big hits.
*Defensive tackle Anthony Adams was consistently getting inside pressure during pass-rushing drills.
* Quarterback Caleb Hanie (shoulder), receiver Johnny Knox (hamstring), safety Major Wright (finger), running back Chester Taylor (hamstring), safety Josh Bullucks (quadricep), long snapper Patrick Mannelly (stinger), receiver Earl Bennett (hamstring), linebacker Hunter Hillenmeyer (foot), defensive lineman Jarron Gilbert (neck) and linebacker Matt Mayberry (ankle) did not practice.
*Garrett Wolfe, who is competing with Kahlil Bell to be the third running back, ripped off a long run on a misdirection play thanks to nice blocking by the second-string offensive line.
*Chris Williams did a nice job blocking Julius Peppers during team work.
*Center Josh Beekman fired a shotgun snap over the head of Dan LeFevour.
*After throwing five interceptions Monday, LeFevour threw only one Tuesday.
