Week 5 Essential NFL Practice News & Notes for Thursday
Bears QB Jay Cutler (hamstring) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Cutler played pretty well last week and has a nice matchup with a shaky Chiefs’ secondary, though Kansas City is a tough place to play. The status of Alshon Jeffery looms large for Cutler.
Lions RB Joique Bell (ankle) missed practice again Thursday. It looks like Bell will miss another week. Ameer Abdullah saw 15 touches in Week 4. Theo Riddick checked in with six, while Zach Zenner saw three. Expect Abdullah to lead the team in touches if Bell remains out. Todd Gurley had some success against the Cardinals last week.
