Bears Preseason 2012: J'Marcus Webb, Chris Williams Splitting Practice Time

The left tackle position, which had previously belonged LT J'Marcus Webb, is now apparently an open position. According to Brad Briggs of the Chicago Tribune, the Bears have begun to split Webb's practice with OL Chris Williams.

According to Williams, the suddenly reappearance of the position battle has not bothered him:

"I have always had a fair shot," Williams said of the competition. "I just come to work. Come Week 1, we'll have the best five guys out there. It will all work itself out. Obviously, they wanted me at right tackle for a reason. I just go to work."

Williams, 27 in the 2012 season, was the Bears first round draft pick in 2008, but has started in only 38 of the Bears' 64 regular season games since then.
