Lance Briggs (middle) and the Bears defense are gearing up to face the red-hot Broncos led by Tim Tebow.

Linebacker Lance Briggs told the media this week that he’d be “pissed” if the Bears lose to Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos. Strong safety Major Wright and running back Matt Forte were held out of practice Thursday. If Wright can’t go, veteran Craig Steltz is expected to step in to replace him against the Broncos. Mike Martz plans to be more aggressive with Caleb Hanie and the Bears defense talks about defending Tim Tebow.
