Chicago Bears excited to see Gabe Carimi at guard

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Offensive lineman Gabe Carimi has had an up-and-down season, but he could end up back in the Bears' starting lineup.

Gabe Carimi may find himself starting on the Bears' offensive line once again, but this time at right guard. Carimi began the season as the starting right tackle, but was demoted following an especially bad loss to the San Francisco 49ers in which the line allowed six sacks. But on Sunday against the Vikings, injuries to Chris Spencer and Lance Louis meant that Carimi was needed at right guard.

The Bears allowed only one sack against Minnesota, and Carimi played well. Quarterback Jay Cutler told ESPN 1000, "Maybe we're on to something. Maybe he's a guard. I don't know." Carimi was selected in the first round of the 2011 draft as a tackle, but the Bears may continue to use him as a guard.

The Bears offensive line played better last weekend against Jared Allen and the Minnesota Vikings, but they have still allowed the third-most sacks in the NFL. This week the Bears take on the Seattle Seahawks, who have 29 sacks so far this season.
