• D.J. Williams has “week-to-week” calf injury

    Williams, who was signed to replace Brian Urlacher at middle linebacker, was carted off the field Wednesday because of a calf injury and is considered week-to-week. Unlike left tackle Jermon Bushrod, who also injured his calf and is day-to-day, Williams has been designated as week-to-week. The difference isn’t subtle. Williams was not at practice today, and has a calf injury that was described as “week to week.” Williams went down in a heap and was carted off the field with a bruised calf. That made his absence from Monday’s practice and the walking boot on his right leg quite noticeable, although the tackle said that the calf injury that led to both developments wasn’t causing him much worry. Another day of practice meant more injuries for the Bears none bigger than linebacker D.J. Williams. Anything other than that would leave the team with Jonathan Scott or J’Marcus Webb manning Jay Cutler’s blindside and that would feel a little to close to last season for anyone’s comfort.
