Bears WR Williams returns to practice

Chicago Bears wideout Roy Williams returned to practice on Thursday, apparently on the road to recovery from a groin issue.

Williams did not play in last Sunday's loss at the New Orleans Saints due to that groin injury which kept him out of practice in the week leading up to the contest.

The 29-year-old, who totaled four receptions for 55 yards in a season-opening win over Atlanta, took only limited reps in Wednesday's session.

In addition, running back Marion Barber (calf), guard Lance Louis (ankle) and safety Chris Harris (hamstring), who were all inactive last week, took limited reps for the second day in a row.
