Running back Giovani Bernard returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since suffering hip and clavicle injuries Oct. 26.

Bernard was listed as limited on the practice report.

Also return to action was right tackle Andre Smith (ankle), who was a full participant after missing Sunday’s game in New Orleans.

Linebacker Vontaze Burfict (knee), defensive end Wallace Gilberry (back), defensive end Margus Hunt (ankle) and cornerback Terence Newman (knee) did not practice, while running back Cedric Peerman (hip) and guard Kevin Zeitler (calf) were limited.

Newman and Burfict were doing rehab work on the side.
