SHARE Bears will not say if a change is in the works on the offensive line

Offensive coordinator Ron Turner wouldn’t say if a change is in the works on the offensive line, and Josh Beekman said he was headed to meetings after practice this afternoon, declining to stop and answer questions if he has been working with the first team in practice.

“You’ll have to talk to Lovie about that,” Turner said when asked if Frank Omiyale will maintain his starting job at left guard.

There is a possibility the Bears could rotate left guards starting in Sunday’s game vs. Cleveland at Soldier Field.

“We could do anything. Have we talked about it? Are we going to? It hasn’t even been discussed,” Turner said. “We have a bunch of issues we’re trying to straighten out. Could we [rotate left guards]? Sure.”

Smith wouldn’t address the situation, however.

“Our football team didnt play well, again starting with me,” Smith said. “It’s no more than that. If we were going to make a personnel change we wouldn’t talk about those through the week. I’m not going to talk about anything personnel-wise. If that’s all you want to talk about, there’s nothing else to talk about.”

Stay tuned.
