LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Pro Bowl linebacker Lance Briggs sounds hopeful he’ll return to the Chicago Bears this week after missing a game with an ankle injury.

Briggs says he feels "very good about playing" against the Washington Redskins. He sprained his left ankle two weeks ago against Carolina and sat out Sunday’s 23-20 loss to Seattle.

Getting the five-time Pro Bowl pick back would be a big boost for a defense that has been mostly effective this season but had some issues against the Seahawks.

There were some missed tackles. The Bears also were picked apart on short, quick passes by Matt Hasselbeck. And they did not force a turnover.
