More observations from Thursday's Bears practice

Here's a compilation of some of Bears beat reporter Kevin Fishbain's tweets during Thursday's practice:

• Corey Wootton being evaluated for a hip injury. Briggs rested.

• Biggest cheer update: Cutler hits Marshall over Tillman for a long play down the sideline. Marshall chucks the ball in celebration.

• Starting LBs in base today: Jon Bostic, James Anderson and Blake Costanzo. Eben Britton starting LT.

• No sign of CB Tim Jennings, who was excused yesterday for personal reasons.

• Lance Briggs not practicing (probably day off). Jermon Bushrod no longer in a boot, but still not practicing. Jonathan Scott out as well.
