Of the six Bears starters who were injured on Sunday against the Vikings, half of them officially won’t play in Week 13.

Guard Lance Louis previously had been placed on injured reserve.  Ruled out on Thursday for a home game against the Seahawks were guard Chris Spencer (knee) and receiver Devin Hester (concussion).

The other three practiced Thursday on a limited basis, with ankle injuries:  linebacker Lane Briggs, running back Matt Forte, and cornerback Charles Tillman.

The 8-3 Bears hold a one-game lead over the 7-4 Packers in the NFC North.

    As a Bear fan, I believe that they are better off when Hester is not playing wide out. They have tried hard to make Hester into a reciever, but have failed. When Hester is on the fiel they are playing with 10 players. They are much better with Earl Bennet at wide out. If they only had a single tight end who can catch………then they might have a passing game.

    Packer fans really dis-like the Seahawks because of that MNF game, I betcha the Packer fans will be pulling for the Seahawks this sunday.

    Oh Burt1913, you like everyone else…the Seahawks, the evil team that took away a game from GB…. The ref’s made the call, along with the NFL. Seattle had nothing to do with it, they just came out with the win, one or the other had to.
