Carimi Back

The Bears had a light workout Wednesday that included Gabe Carimi who is coming back from a dislocated kneecap that he suffered in the Chicago Bears-New Orleans Saints game. There will be a lot of discussion on whether Carimi will start now that the current offensive line has come together and played well under the new streamlined scheme that focuses more on running Matt Forte. Much has been said about the excellent run blocking of Chris Spencer who has been playing with a hand injury.

We may see more of a substitution, of players than a wholesale change in the existing line. The Bears will need a line that can be proficient at pass blocking when they face teams now who will be more focused on shutting down the run.

Regardless of how the Bears play Carimi, they will be in the best shape they have been in for several weeks after their bye week when they line up against the Eagles on November 7, 2011. The Eagles on the other hand, face a tough hungry Dallas Cowboys team. The Eagles were highly touted early on, but failed miserably to measure up to expectations. Nevertheless, they seem to be turning things around.
