Antrel Rolle could return Sunday against Vikings

LAKE FOREST, Ill. – Chicago Bears safety Antrel Rolle admitted Wednesday that his high ankle sprain is expected to cause him discomfort the rest of the season.
Rolle returned to practice in limited fashion on Wednesday.

“I feel all right,” Rolle said. “I’m still grinding and I’m still working. I’m trying to get back to 100 percent. You know, it’s going to be a constant grind, it’s going to be a constant grind for the rest of the year. I’ve had this injury before and it’s an injury that pretty much you feel all season long. It’s just a matter of pain tolerance and feeling comfortable with running and breaking and all that good stuff.

Rolle missed the Bears’ last two games after injuring his ankle in Chicago’s 22-20 victory over the Raiders on Oct. 4. Before experiencing the Week 4 setback, Rolle had played in every regular-season game since 2009.

Rolle has not ruled out playing against the Vikings at Soldier Field this Sunday.

“The bye came with perfect timing,” Rolle said. “I’m still trying to push it, still trying to evaluate where I am for Sunday. Sunday has always been my timing point, and I haven’t shied away from that goal yet. I’m just going to keep pushing and keep grinding, and hopefully I’ll be able to be out there with the guys on Sunday.”
