    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Dec 16, 2013
    Briggs has not played since Oct. Besides Briggs, Chicago has lost five other defensive players to injury since the start of training camp. - The Chicago Bears defense, traditionally the team's strength but this year a liability, could see the return of star outside linebacker Lance Briggs in Sunday night's game against the Eagles. Briggs, who hasn’t worn a sling for about a month, has said he plans on returning this season. But Chicago's win in Cleveland may have provided a ray of hope for the Bears defense: They allowed 93 rushing yards, marking the first time in six games that they kept an opponent below 100. “I’m reasonably optimistic,” coach Marc Trestman said, “but it’s going to be through the three days of practice before a decision’s made.”
