Bears | Allen Returns | RB Notes

Jimmy Greenfield reports for ChicagoSports.com Chicago Bears projected starting RB James Allen returned to practice today and declared he was 85 percent recovered from a hip flexor injury. He wouldn't agree that a comment from coach Dick Jauron hastened his return. Jauron had said Allen would "have to practice to play." Rookie RB Anthony Thomas remains sidelined indefinitely with a knee injury. RBs Marlon Barnes and Skip Hicks are expected to see a lot of action in Saturday night's game at Kansas City, but Jauron also plans to get Allen into the game for six to 12 carries.
