Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Mike Tice says Chris Williams will see time at left tackle with the first team offense against the Washington Redskins. J'Marcus Webb will also play with the first team and help protect Jay Cutler. Tice spoke Monday about the team's struggles on the offensive line, saying that he was having trouble sleeping at night because the quarterbacks weren't being adequately protected. Chicago allowed six sacks against Denver.
Analysis: This is going to have to be fixed between now and the start of the season, especially if the Bears are counting on Cutler to lead their passing attack for the entire season. He played in just 10 games last season but now has Brandon Marshall and rookie Alson Jeffery to throw to in the passing game. Cutler could be a solid start in fantasy football this season, but he won't be effective if the offensive line doesn't protect him.
