Chris Williams played it cool Thursday, trying to speak diplomatically about his battle for the starting left tackle spot against J'Marcus Webb.
"You just come in and keep working hard like I always do and let that stuff sort itself out," he said.
Asked about the pressure, Williams said, "You can find motivation anywhere.
"I'm just excited to be playing. We just want to get the season going and win games. There's always pressure. Everyone has a job to do - the whole team - and we just got to come out and do our best to be explosive and take care of our part of the bargain."
Williams said he's just excited to be healthy. Last year, he was sidelined after nine games because of a dislocated wrist.
Williams, like many others, talked about the explosiveness of the Bears offense.
"It is exciting. And, like I said, anything can pop at any time, with these guys. We just have to hold up our end of the bargain, and they'll take care of theirs," he said.
That's the multi-million question: Can the Bears o-line hold up?
More to come on this later.
