Patrick has not been announced yet as the starter for today. If Patrick starts at center over Sam Mustipher, then it remains to be seen what the Bears will do with Sam Mustipher and Teven Jenkins. Mustipher was gearing up to be the starting right guard before Patrick injured his hand. Jenkins has been moved to right guard and played well at the spot over the last two preseason games.
The hope is Jenkins starts at right guard, giving the Bears a strong right side run blocking unit.
