Pro Bowl left guard Josh Sitton had another day of full participation; raising the question if Sitton (ankle) will start of Sunday, or come off the bench for a second consecutive week? "Last week he wasn't ready to take a full load as a starter," Bears coach John Fox said. "So that was his status in our opinion last week and we're evaluating that moving forward this week."

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears coach John Fox said there is nothing new to announce regarding the status of cornerback Kyle Fuller for Sunday's game at Detroit. The Bears designated Fuller to return off of injured reserve, but the former 1st round pick was inactive last game despite having a full week of practice.

Although most of their key players are already on injured reserve, the Bears only had three players on the current 53-man roster miss practice on Thursday -- receiver Eddie Royal, offensive tackle Mike Adams and linebacker Willie Young.

Marshall backs Bowles: He's kept Jets united

Brandon Marshall says Jets coach Todd Bowles doesn't deserve to be fired and the situation in New York this season isn't comparable to the lost season he experienced with the Bears in 2014.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

In somewhat of a surprise, veteran Bears guard Josh Sitton had full participation in practice on Wednesday. Sitton has been battling an ankle injury for a good chunk of the year, and he came off the bench last week vs. San Francisco.

Bears receivers Eddie Royal (toe) and Marquess Wilson (groin), offensive tackle Mike Adams (back), linebacker Pernell McPhee (knee) and cornerback Tracy Porter (knee) all missed practice on Wednesday in advance of Sunday's game at Detroit.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jets WR Brandon Marshall said the locker room remains united despite the losing. He said the locker room was "100 times worse" with the 2014 Bears. He said Chicago was a divided locker room.
