Brown (knee) will play Sunday versus the Bears.

Brown (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears.
Brown continues to progress in his recovery from a knee injury sustained in Week 5, and was a limited participant in Friday's practice.

Brown left the Patriots' Week 5 win over the Colts prematurely due to a knee injury, but he was able to practice in limited fashion Friday and his status for Week 6 remains up in the air.
