Description: The Chicago Sun Times reports Bears' head coach Lovie Smith said Williams (hamstring) is progressing, but he does not "know exactly when he'll be back."
Insight: The Bears offensive line really struggled in Week 4 against the Giants, so hopefully their starting left tackle can return soon. (

Description: According to the Chicago Sun Times, Williams is expected to shift to left tackle if Orlando Pace (groin) misses any time.
Insight: Pace left Week 12's gamea against Minnesota with the groin issue. Williams was the team's 2008 first-round pick and is seen as the left tackle of the future. (

Description: GM Jerry Angelo told the Bears website that he is confident that 2008 first round draft pick Williams will be a fine right tackle in 2009.
Insight: Williams played in just nine games in his rookie season because of back problems. He played left tackle at Vanderbilt, but he has been moved to the right side to accommodate Orlando Pace. (
