HALAS HALL (CBS) Brian Urlacher had a full practice Wednesday, but the more important development may have been the sighting of Adam Podlesh who was punting.
Podlesh is recovering from a hip flexor injury suffered in the Bears’ second preseason game against the Redskins. Head coach Lovie Smith said the punter was limited in Wednesday’s practice, but did not rule out the possibility of him playing Sunday’s opener against the Colts.

“The training staff, they have me on a progression right now,” Podlesh said. “It was good day today. I felt good. Being limited today, that’s basically what they wanted me to be at. We’ll progress from there, but things are going well.”
Chris Conte (shoulder) was also limited in practice and running back Lorenzo Booker (head) did not practice.
Stephen Paea (ankle) was not listed on the Bears first injury report released Wednesday.
