I had a chance to chat with Bears receiver Roy Williams, who was supplanted in the starting lineup by Johnny Knox.
"Starting is just playing the first play. I mean, Johnny earns it," Williams told me. "We respect him on this football team. He's practicing better than anybody, and he's gotten better. You turn on the film from last year to this year, and he's not even the same guy.
"So he's growing and maturing, and that's all you can ask for, from a young guy."
Williams has five catches for 70 yards, while Knox leads all receivers with catches (12) and receiving yards (237).
Williams said his legs are feeling better.
"It's getting there. It's about 80 something percent," he said. "Stiffened up just a little bit [Sunday]. But it's getting better."
