Bears receiver Roy Williams appears recovered from a groin injury that sidelined him for last Sunday's game in New Orleans.
Williams practiced in full Thursday, which bodes well for his chances to play Sunday against the Green Bay Packers at Soldier Field.
Asked what Williams brings, Bears coach Lovie Smith said, "A lot.
"Big receiver, good blocker. He's a good football player, and we need all of them this week against a great Packers team coming in here," he said. "Roy's made a lot of progress. It seems like he's ready to go."
Receiver Earl Bennett (chest) did not practice for a second consecutive day, and indications are he will not play Sunday. That would thrust rookie Dane Sanzenbacher back into the lineup, as a slot receiver.
Safety Major Wright (head) and right tackle Gabe Carimi also did not practice.
Bears running Marion Barber (calf), safety Chris Harris and guard Lance Louis were all limited in practice Thursday.
For the Packers, linebacker Clay Matthews and cornerback Charles Woodson did not practice again, after missing Wednesday's session. Defensvie end Ryan Pickett and cornerback Tramon Williams were limited.
