The Chicago Bears returned to the practice field Wednesday, but did so without a number of players who’s status against Seattle Sunday remains up in the air.

The Bears practiced without cornerback Charles Tillman (foot), linebacker Lance Briggs (ankle), wide receivers Devin Hester (concussion) and Alshon Jeffery (knee), guard Chris Spencer (knee) and tight end Kellen Davis (unknown).
