Charles Leno Jr.

Leno was given an opportunity to start at right tackle after Jordan Mills tweaked a hamstring in practice earlier in the week.  His promotion appeared to be partially due to injury and partially due to performance.  He let down big time in his opportunity to start for the Bears offensive line.  He was called for a holding call on the Bears’ first offensive possession and easily could have been called for another on another when Kyle Long got flagged.  Incumbent right tackle Jordan Mills has been on this ice since his rookie season, but Leno missed his opportunity to make a case to supplant Mills.
