3 biggest Chicago Bears storylines after 1 week of training camp
2. Offensive Line movement
The offensive line was the biggest storyline entering training camp and it has not disappointed. Essentially every player has had some sort of significant news to digest.
Of course, the biggest is Teven Jenkins missing time, not seeing any first-team reps at this point, and Lucas Patrick going down for potentially all of camp. The Patrick injury may not be serious, but the week one offensive line likely will take zero practice snaps together before week one.
Doug Kramer has been getting extra first-team work because of this, but Sam Mustipher also saw work with the first-team center, as well as first-team right guard.
Mustipher may not start at either, but seeing work at both shows he will probably make the roster. Finally, the additions of Riley Reiff and Michael Scofield. Both of them took a few days to get worked into the mix, but both saw significant work with the first team, and the thought is that they will step into starting snaps when pads come on.
Things are shaky, and they will have plenty of rotations in practice, but at the same time a starting five of Riley Reiff, Cody Whitehair, Lucas Patrick, Michael Schofield, and Larry Borom is coming into focus.
