Bears wide receiver Earl Bennett was a late addition to the injury list this week, suffering a hand injury that led to minimal participation in Friday's practice. However, Bennett, linebacker Brian Urlacher (knee), safety Chris Conte (shoulder) and punter Adam Podlesh (hip-flexor) are all listed as probable for Sunday's game with the Colts.
Urlacher practiced in full Friday, as coach Lovie Smith had said he would following a Thursday in which the linebacker sat out for the first time this week.
Podlesh's condition is a surprise as his hip-flexor injury and rookie Ryan Quigley had been kept on the roster in case he is needed Sunday.
At this point, it's possible Quigley could be waived and another player signed to the roster.
D-end dog paddle: First-round draft pick Shea McClellin will get limited playing time in his first NFL game. Coach Lovie Smith bristled at the suggestion that McClellin is being thrown into the deep end with hopes he can tread water.
"I don't think it is throw him in the deep end -- I think he is a guy that knows how to swim," Smith said. "He is going to go out there and swim fairly well in shallow water is what I think."
Record watch: With punt/kick returner Devin Hester a TD shy of Deion Sanders' all-time NFL record of 19 combined TD returns (interception, fumbles, punts, kicks), he will definitely have the end zone and record book crossing his mind Sunday at Soldier Field.
"I'm not going to sit here and say it doesn't," Hester said. "It's just one more record I can accomplish. I have a lot more years in me, so I'm hoping that I can do that as soon as possible so that question and thought can be erased from my mind and I can go ahead and continue to play ball.”
Hester already has the record for combined kick-punt return TDs with 17. He also has a field goal return for a TD that counts toward Sanders' record. However, Hester's TD return to open Super Bowl XLI against the Colts doesn't count toward the total since it occurred in the postseason.
Marveling: Sanders' record might be on Hester's mind, but so, too, is the record Hester's new teammate Brandon Marshall set against the Colts with 21 catches in a 2009 game for Denver.
"I can't get the 21 receptions out of my mind," Hester said. "It just stands out. It's something unheard of -- never been done before. The guy right there (Marshall in nearby locker) is unbelievable."
No special occasion: You won't find cornerbacks Tim Jennings and Kelvin Hayden getting overly emotional about facing their former team Sunday -- then again, all players seem to say that before they actually get on the field. And if they win, then they talk about how big it was.
But Jennings said he isn't concerned about it because "it was a long time ago."
He came to the Bears in 2010. The last time the Bears played the Colts was in the 2008 season-opener, and Jennings played for the Colts then.
For Hayden, who helped the Colts beat the Bears in Super Bowl XLI with a key interception return for a TD, it's a situation he's already experienced.
"It won't mean that much because I went through it all last year," he said. "When I was with Atlanta, we played them."
Hayden's Falcons beat the Colts 31-7 last year.
