3. What will happen with the Chicago Bears Right Tackle

One interesting note from the loss to the Miami Dolphins was seeing Riley Reiff starting for a second straight week. Larry Borom was out last week with a concussion, but he did pass protocol this week.

To be fair, he passed protocol late in the week, and if anything we have seen that this coaching staff does not throw players right into the mix after they come back. They like to ease things back.

So, it could be that they wanted to give Larry Borom the extra week. Still, when the name is Riley Reiff, a known commodity, and he plays well for two weeks, it has to be noted.

Beyond that, the team activated Alex Leatherwood from the IR. They will not throw him into anything either, but the former first-round pick is certainly lurking in the background as the team continues to find pieces that fit the roster moving forward.

Does Leatherwood get a chance? Do they go back to Borom? Is Reiff going to be the man the rest of the way? There are a lot of ways that the Chicago Bears could go for their right tackle.
