Matt Forte misses practice

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Cornerback Charles Tillman (knee), defensive tackle Henry Melton (shin), running back Matt Forte (knee) and quarterback Jay Cutler (thumb) sat out practice on Thursday as the Chicago Bears continue to prepare for a pivotal game this weekend against Seattle.

Safety Major Wright (shoulder) and guard Edwin Williams (calf) were limited for the second consecutive day.

The Bears listed receiver Sam Hurd as missing practice for non- football related reasons. Hurd was arrested Wednesday evening on federal drug charges.
