Briggs fractured his shoulder in late October, and the Bears defense has struggled ever since. Briggs had 75 tackles and two sacks before getting hurt, and the Bears have had the NFL's worst run defense without him.
There was some hope he'd be able to return this week vs. the Cleveland Browns, but head coach Marc Trestman addressed Briggs status Thursday.
“I’d be much more optimistic next week that he [could return],” Trestman said. “He got more work today, and we’ll see how he is doing at the start of next week. But it raises our optimism, certainly.” – via ESPNChicago.com.
