Henry Melton could return for the Bears Sunday against the Cardinals.
In what has been a miserable month for the Bears on the injury front, there's actually some encouraging news to report following the Bears' practice on Wednesday.
Defensive tackle Henry Melton (chest), cornerback Tim Jennings (shoulder), wide receiver Earl Bennett (concussion), defensive end Shea McClellin (knee), and linebacker Geno Hayes (knee) were all able to participate in practice, although they were all listed as "limited" participants. And the Wednesday practice at Halas Hall was apparently just a "very light workout":
Bears practicing without helmets, pads and wearing just sweats in what amounts to a very light workout.Still, it's a good sign that those players were on the field participating at all, especially given how early it is in the week. The Bears could really use every single one of them back for this must-win game.

Middle linebacker Brian Urlacher (hamstring) sat out practice, and is expected to miss the game, which is no surprise since the initial reports called for him missing at least 3 games. This would be the third game.
Right tackle Jonathan Scott (hamstring) missed practice and sounds very questionable for the game. Gabe Carimi would be back to starting at right tackle if Scott can't go.
