It appears the Chicago Bears will return from their bye next week with the fifth different starting combination along their offensive line this season, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.

Veteran Roberto Garza, who has missed the past two games because of a knee injury, is expected to return as the Bears' right guard. That will push Lance Louis and Edwin Williams to reserve status, assuming that Chris Williams remains the Bears' starting left guard. The tackles in that scenario would be Frank Omiyale (left) and J'Marcus Webb (right).

At some point, this musical chairs has to stop. I'm guessing the Bears hope this group will be their final combination of the season, but they were hoping the same thing this summer when the opened with Williams and Omiyale at tackle, along with Garza and Louis at guard. At this point, the personnel evaluation has to stop. The only way any group is going to come together is to play five players -- anyone, at this point -- together for an extended period.
