49ers vs. Bears: Chilo Rachal ready for former team

Sam Greenwood

The starting left guard for the Bears played four seasons with the 49ers before joining Chicago in the offseason.

After four seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, offensive guard Chilo Rachal will be going back to the Bay Area on Monday with a different jersey on. Now the starting left guard for the Bears, the 2008 second round draft pick of the 49ers downplayed any extra significance of the return to face his former team in a talk with Jeff Dickerson of ESPN Chicago:

"It's just another good team on the schedule so there really isn't more motivation. I'm going to treat it just like I do every week, which is to go out, work hard and execute."

In his first three seasons with the 49ers, Rachal started 35 of the 39 games he appeared in, as he was the starting right guard for the team during that time. However, he started just three games during the 2011 season as the team reshuffled the line to feature 2010 first round picks, Mike Iupati and Anthony Davis, as starters.

Rachal was allowed to leave in free agency following the season and signed a one-year deal with the Bears where he has served as the team's starting left guard in seven games.
