Lance Briggs, Charles Tillman among those not practicing

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks

Bears defensive starters Lance Briggs and Charles Tillman were in sweats today during the portion of practice open to reporters.

On offense, Roberto Garza also didn't appear to be practicing.

Chris Williams, sidelined the last three games with a hamstring injury, practiced today. But Williams isn't going to return to left tackle, where the Bears insisted he was best suited to play. Instead, Frank Omiyale will remain at left tackle and Williams will swing inside at left guard.

It's unclear if this is a permanent or temporary move, especially with Garza nursing a knee injury.

Meanwhile, rookie J'Marcus Webb and former practice squad player Edwin Williams are expected to start for a second consecutive week.

"We're kind of moving some guys around," Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said, when asked about his confidence in his offensive line. "We got some guys banged up. Hopefully, we'll get Chris Williams back here, pretty soon.

"I think this whole offense is going through change and still figuring out what we're good at and what we need to work on. But the good thing is, we're 4-1,and we keep wining ball games while we're figuring it out. That's kind of the path we're on."

Cutler took most of the snaps during the portion open to reporters. But, Caleb Hanie got the other reps, ahead of Todd Collins.

I think Lance Louis or Chris Williams would work at left guard. I always felt that Garza was a less than mediocre player. Keep Ed Williams and Webb on the right side. They seemd to do well last Sunday. The only thing that will help this O-line now is keeping the same guys in the same positions; barring injuries, of course. It's the sixth game of the year. These knuckleheads should know what to do. Oh yes, and get Clark back in at TE. He is the better blocker.

Sean, are you getting paid by how many times you use the word "but" in your posts?


No I don't, but should I?
