Chris Williams to replace Roberto Garza

The Bears have lost their starting LG Roberto Garza for Sunday’s game vs. the Seahawks. He might not get his job back when he returns, though.

Garza, according to ESPN Chicago, has been dealing with knee pain the past few weeks, and he’ll undergo arthroscopic knee surgery this week.

C. Williams That means LT Chris Williams, who’s returning from a hamstring injury that’s kept him out of the lineup since Week 2, will slide into Garza's position. Frank Omiyale will stay at Williams’ former spot.

"He [Williams] took snaps at a couple spots," Bears offensive line coach Mike Tice said after practice. "We didn't give him too many snaps in a row, four at the most I think, because I didn't want him to get fatigued and hurt his leg again."

Garza hasn’t played particularly well this year, so if Williams can show he’s adept at transitioning to the guard spot, the former first-round pick might take Garza’s starting spot for good. Of course, with the amount of switching the coaching staff has done with the offensive line this season, there’s no telling how this will end.

“As physical as Chris is, he’s natural inside because he’s so stout and that helps us in protections and in the running game,” offensive coordinator Mike Martz told reporters.

Garza is a bum.  I don't know how he kept his starting job this long.
