RENTON, Wash. -- Run-stuffing defensive end Red Bryant and linebacker Leroy Hill will both be game-time decisions for the Seattle Seahawks entering Sunday's big NFC matchup at Chicago.
Coach Pete Carroll said Friday that Bryant was held out of practice for a third straight day with a foot injury. Hill went through a workout to test his sore ankle, but how the injury responds will determine if he plays against the Bears. Bryant and Hill are listed as questionable.
Seattle also will likely be down its nickel defensive back, Marcus Trufant, after he had a hamstring issue pop up late in Thursday's practice. Trufant is doubtful and Walter Thurmond would likely take his place. The Seahawks also pulled Sidney Rice from the end of Friday's practice with a sore calf, but Carroll said they think he is OK. Rice was also questionable.
The Bears will be without receiver/kick returner Devin Hester who is out with a concussion. Guard Chris Spencer will also miss the game.
Running back Matt Forte, linebacker Lance Briggs and cornerback Charles Tillman are all probable for the Bears.
