If there was any doubt that the Bears planned to run and run often against the Panthers today, it was erased when it was announced that rookie J'Marcus Webb will start at right tackle for veteran Kevin Shaffer. The 6-foot-7, 328-pounder is a road grader who does his best work moving forward.
There were two other noteable lineup changes.
Edwin Williams will start at right guard for Lance Louis, who has had a store knee. Defensively, Tim Jennings will start for Zack Bowman for the second straight week.
