The Chicago Bears are set to face the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 8 with a starter at left tackle the team has dearly missed for much of this season.
The Bears have had several significant injuries to the offensive line in the early season. The Bears will still have Nate Davis out, but they revealed a positive sign for two starters up front on the final injury report released Friday.
The Chicago Bears get positive news for OL
According to a statement by the Bears, Braxton Jones, who was limited in practice all week, has no injury designation against the Chargers. This should mean Jones will make his first start since he was placed on injured reserve for a neck injury he suffered against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2.
Darnell Wright, who missed Tuesday’s practice with a shoulder and toe injury, has no designation either. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice.
