Outside linebacker Khalil Mack (foot) and defensive tackle Akiem Hicks (groin) remained out of practice. Returner Jakeem Grant (ankle) also didn’t practice for a second consecutive day.

Cornerback Duke Shelley (ankle) was limited.

Bears receivers coach Mike Furrey returned to practice Thursday after testing positive for COVID-19 last week. He missed six days.
