LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) Chicago Bears linebacker Lance Briggs sat out his second straight practice because of an injured left ankle, throwing his status for Sunday’s game against Seattle into question.

The five-time Pro Bowl selection left last week’s win over Carolina after hurting the ankle in the second half. He also sprained his right ankle in the preseason.

Coach Lovie Smith says the latest injury “is a little bit of a concern,” but adds Briggs “normally comes through at the end of the week.”

If Briggs isn’t available, the Bears will likely go with Brian Iwuh.
