The Chicago Bears' Thursday injury report was lengthy once again, but it did contain a major positive development. After being limited on Wednesday, Justin Fields practiced in full on Thursday.

Fields suffered a left shoulder injury in the Bears' Week 11 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. That ailment caused him to miss Week 12 against the New York Jets, resulting in Trevor Siemian taking over under center.

Like Justin Fields, Chase Claypool (knee) improved from limited to full participation on Thursday. Offensive lineman Riley Reiff, who sat out Wednesday due to a back ailment, was a limited participant in Thursday's session.

Still, the Bears are banged up as the calendar flips to December. Larry Borom, Jaquan Brisker, Kyler Gordon, Dante Pettis, and Trevor Siemian all did not practice for the second straight day. Additionally, Kindle Vildor remained limited in practice.

The Chicago Bears will hope for further improvement on the injury report Friday ahead of a Week 13 showdown with the Green Bay Packers.
