Running back Kevin Jones, who began camp on the physically-unable-to-perform list after off-season knee surgery; and defensive tackle Dusty Dvoracek, who came to Bourbonnais on the non-football-injury list after straining his calf weight-lifting with teammate Tommie Harris, are both expected to participate in Saturday's 7 p.m. practice at Ward Field, Olivet Nazarene University's football stadium. The 6-foot-3, 303-pound Dvoracek is the Bears' best pure nose tackle and expected to reclaim the starting job, which he won last year in camp, only to suffer a season-ending knee injury in the regular-season opener. The 6-foot, 228-pound Jones is a strong inside runner and pass catcher who is expected to provide a solid complement to rookie Matt Forte.
