Quarterback Jay Cutler returned to practice for the Chicago Bears on Thursday but was limited as he attempts to return from a concussion and play in Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings at Soldier Field.

Cutler wasn't the only Bears quarterback who was limited.

Jason Campbell, who started in the Bears' loss on Monday night at San Francisco, was limited because of a rib injury.

Although he was able to take part in a portion of practice, it still isn't certain Cutler will be able to start on Sunday.

Wide receiver Brandon Marshall (shoulder) also was limited for the Bears.

Meanwhile, the Bears continued to make changes to their struggling offensive line.

The Chicago Tribune reported that right tackle Gabe Carimi has been benched and replaced by Jonathan Scott, who was signed in early September. The team also has replaced left guard Chilo Rachal with Chris Spencer.

Rachal left Halas Hall after being told of his demotion on Wednesday and was placed on the reserve/left team list. The Tribune reported Rachal returned to the facility Thursday morning to apologize for his abrupt departure.
