SAT BEAR Practice and injury notes..
Bears' Briggs likely out for Sunday
Iwuh expected to get call against Seahawks
The Bears listed Lance Briggs as questionable on the injury report with a sprained left ankle, but all indications are the linebacker will miss Sunday's game against the Seahawks.
Briggs didn't practice for the third consecutive day Friday, but coach Lovie Smith refused to rule him out.
"He's making progress,'' Smith said. "Not quite there yet, but we've had a little bit of time.''
Brian Iwuh is expected to start in place of Briggs, who has missed only three starts since 2003. Briggs has 111 starts in seven-plus seasons
Successful surgery: Smith said guard Roberto Garza had successful arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Friday.
Garza played against the Panthers and Giants with a torn meniscus. He is expected back in 10 to 14 days.
When Garza returns, he might have to compete with Edwin Williams for his old spot at right guard. The Bears inserted Chris Williams into Garza's spot at left guard.
Injury update: Cornerback Charles Tillman (calf) had full participation and is probable for Sunday. Brian Urlacher, who injured his groin in the third quarter at Carolina, did not show up on the injury report the last two days after he was limited Wednesday. Rookie safety Major Wright remained out with a hamstring strain, although he continued to do light running on a side field. … For the Seahawks, defensive tackle Brandon Mebane (calf) and guard Chester Pitts (knee) are questionable. Mebane did not practice Friday, while Pitts had full participation. Defensive end Dexter Davis (hamstring) and cornerback Marcus Trufant (ankle) are probable.
