LAKE FOREST, Ill. (Sports Network) – Chicago Bears safety Chris Harris missed Wednesday’s practice in preparation for Sunday’s NFC Championship game with a hip injury.

Harris suffered the injury during last week’s 35-24 win over Seattle in the Divisional round of the playoffs.

He started all 16 games during the regular season, recording 70 tackles and five interceptions.

Wide receiver Earl Bennett and cornerback Zach Bowman also missed Wednesday’s session, though the absences were not injury-related.
