Williams not worried about moving inside
Chris Williams moving from left tackle to left guard might have been major news to Bears fans but it was no big deal for Williams.
“They told me to play guard and I do what my coaches tell me,” he said. “It wasn’t like a lengthy explanation needed.”
Williams has played either right or left tackle since the Bears made him the 14th overall pick in the 2008 draft.
“A job’s a job,” Williams said. “I’m just going out here to play football and it doesn’t matter where I line up. I’m going to give it my best shot and play as hard as I can, and if it’s left guard, left tackle, D tackle, safety, whatever, I’ll play whatever.”
Much has been made of Frank Omiyale moving from right tackle to left tackle. Offensive line coach Mike Tice is so impressed with the job Omiyale has done that he is moving Williams, who played left tackle before being injured early in Week 2, inside. Williams downplayed the difficulty involved.
“It’s a different position. The guys in there are bigger, it’s closer quarters, so it’s a different position, but it’s all football, technique’s all the same.”
