Rookie receiver Alshon Jeffery missed practice again Thursday with a hand injury that has forced him to sit out the last three games.
“Alshon Jeffery’s getting better,” said coach Lovie Smith. “He’s not quite there yet.”
Middle linebacker Brian Urlacher (coach’s decision) and defensive tackle Matt Toeaina (calf) also did not practice in advance of Sunday night’s home game against the Texans. Defensive end Israel Idonije (ankle) and defensive tackle Henry Melton (back) worked out without restrictions.
For the Texans, nose tackle Shaun Cody (ribs), tight end Owen Daniels (back) and running back Ben Tate (hamstring) did not practice, while fullback James Casey (illness), cornerbacks Johnathan Joseph (quadricep) and Brice McCain (knee), defensive end Antonio Smith (ankle) and receiver Kevin Walter (groin) were limited.
