LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- Pro Bowl linebacker Brian Urlacher practiced Wednesday as the Chicago Bears continued to prepare for their season opener against Indianapolis.

Urlacher injured his left knee in the final game last season and has been sidelined for most of the preseason. He had arthroscopic surgery in mid-August and practiced Monday for the first time since July 31.

On Wednesday, he was listed as a full participant. That's good news for the Bears as they get ready to meet No. 1 draft pick Andrew Luck and the Colts on Sunday.

Urlacher did not stop to talk to reporters, but coach Lovie Smith says he had "a good practice."

Punter Adam Podlesh (hip) and safety Chris Conte (shoulder) were limited participants, while running back Lorenzo Booker (head) sat out.
