What will undoubtedly be a story for the rest of the preseason, the left tackle position will once again be the most watched battle of the night. J’Marcus Webb struggled mightily in last Thursday’s preseason opener and unlike all the other starters, Webb continued to play into the fourth quarter.
For a competition once thought to be closed, offensive coordinator Mike Tice has said that Chris Williams will see work with the first team at the left tackle position Saturday night against the Washington Redskins.
Left tackle has been a weak spot for the Bears since Jay Cutler’s arrival in Chicago and Tice let it be known he was uncomfortable with where they currently stand:
“I have trouble sleeping at night until I know that our quarterback is protected”
Both Williams and Webb will likely get an opportunity with the first team on Saturday night and it should be interesting to see whether or not Williams can help Tice finally get some sleep.
