Chris Williams Return Date

By the time November 2nd rolls around hopefully we aren't so bad at offensive line that we have to rush him back in, but on that date the Bears are currently shooting for for a possible return of Chris Williams

Without most of training camp and no game time, Williams might be of little help regardless.

Doctors told Williams after Wednesday's surgery to repair a herniated disc in his lower back that he should expect to be out 10 to 12 weeks, a source said Friday. That would make the Nov. 2 game against the Lions in Week 9 the earliest date Williams could contribute to the Bears offensive line—if he contributes at all.

The remaining question is whether the Bears keep him on the active roster or just shut him down for the season and place him on injured reserve.
