Williams to start at left tackle

December, 2, 2009
LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- The Chicago Bears will have a much different looking offensive line Sunday against the St. Louis Rams, as Jay Cutler confirmed what most of us suspected, that right tackle Chris Williams is going to move over to left tackle.

"Yeah, we don't have a choice," Cutler said. "Chris is going to be the guy. I'm confident in him. He's still learning out there. He's young, he's still picking up things. He's going to go out there and battle, and that's all I can ask from him."

The Bears may choose to play Kevin Shaffer at right tackle. and keep Frank Omiyale at left guard, although Omiyale may project as a tackle in the future.
