The 6-1 Chicago Bears returned to the practice field Wednesday in preparation for their trip Sunday down to Nashville to face the Tennessee Titans (3-5).

Tight end Matt Spaeth was limited in workouts with a ankle injury, but Bears head coach Lovie Smith doesn’t expect it to linger and looks for  a quick return to practice. “Again, it is limited,” Smith said. “He’ll be good to go tomorrow.”

Chicago will focus on getting its offense untracked after last week’s lethargic performance that resulted in six sacks to QB Jay Cutler. The Bears also hope to get the ball in the hands of RB Matt Forte more. Forte’s touches are down this season as the club transitions to offensive coordinator Mike Tice’s game plan, and an increased emphasis on getting the ball downfield, especially to wide receiver Brandon Marshall.

the Titans are in a team also looking for consistency. Matt Hasselback has taken over the QB spot in place of injured second-year man Jake Locker. Hasselback has been a difficult opponent for the Bears to scheme. Look for him to try and get the ball out quickly to rookie wide receiver Kendall Wright, a player the Bears liked in last spring’s NFL draft, and veteran Nate Washington. Titans RB Chris Johnson has begun to come on after a slow start.

Extra Points: Tenneesse’s right guard Leroy Harris, linebacker Patrick Bailey, cornerback Tommie Campbell and right tackle David Stewart all were held out of practice Wednesday…
