Chicago Bears left guard

Cody Whitehair: 265 snaps

Primary matchups: TJ Slaton, Kenny Clark, Devonte Wyatt, Logan Hall, Mike Greene, Neil Farrell, Derrick Nnadi, Zach Allen, Jonathan Harris

We have discussed Whitehair and his performance at left guard in previous posts. He has been primarily at center, which is where we will go more in-depth on his recent performance.

Cody Whitehair grade at LG: D+

Teven Jenkins: 103 snaps

Primary matchup: Jonathan Allen, Dean Lowry, Jon Bullard, Harrison Phillips

The Bears offensive line has looked more competent with Teven Jenkins in the lineup. He came out of the gate hot, and the rushing attack has been better in the past two weeks with him. Jenkins has struggled with stunts a few times, as he followed his man outside and saw D.J. Wonnum stunt inside on him with ease. One play ended with Jenkins falling over, trying to backpedal. It was not as clean as his first game, and it will be interesting to see if teams start to attack Jenkins and Borom in the way that Brian Flores did.

Teven Jenkins Grade: B-

Ja'Tyre Carter: 11 snaps

Primary Matchup: Jonathan Allen

Carter struggled in the 11 snaps that he was asked to play at left guard. We will go further into his grade at right guard, where he has more tape to evaluate.

Ja'Tyre Carter grade at LG: D-
