It appears as though offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth is finally healthy enough to practice, though to what extent is unknown at the moment:
Whitworth is taking part in practice and Ghee is back. Burfict is out there with helmet but wasn’t taking part in drills during first 30 min

He continues to insist he’s ready to role and it’s up to his doctors as to when he’ll make his 2013 debut:
“When the doctor clears me, I’ll be allowed to go,” Whitworth said. “No matter how much I argue with him, he’s going to have my best interest at heart. As soon as they give me the green light, I’ll be out there.”
During the open portion of the session, Burfict was in full uniform, but was not participating in other drills the linebackers were going through.
It’s safe to say Vontaze Burfict is still suffering from Sunday’s lower leg injury he suffered on what looked like an illegal low-tackle by Chicago Bears tight end Kyle Adams. His status for Monday night looks like it will be decided around Monday, and even may be gametime decision.
