We informed you about Bears running back Matt Forte (surprisingly) practicing on Wednesday after suffering an ankle injury against the Vikings. Forte reportedly looked "fine" in the practice, and on Thursday, the star running back said he'll indeed play on Sunday against the Seahawks at Soldier Field:

Very nice. Forte practiced again in limited fashion on Thursday, as did linebacker Lance Briggs (ankle), cornerback Charles Tillman (ankle), and Kellen Davis (ankle).

Missing practice were wide receiver Devin Hester (concussion), Chris Spencer (knee), Alshon Jeffery (knee), and Brian Urlacher (rest). Spencer and Jeffery were expected to miss this game, and Urlacher's just getting his usual day off to rest his bothersome knee.

As for Hester, it appears he still isn't very close to being medically cleared for the concussion he suffered against the Vikings :
UPDATE: As expected, Hester and Spencer will not play on Sunday:
