Bears flip-flop tackles Webb, Britton

Posted by Larry Mayer on August 1, 2013 – 3:30 pm

As part of an ongoing evaluation process, the Bears again shuffled their offensive linemen in Thursday’s practice, flip-flopping J’Marcus Webb to left tackle and Eben Britton to right tackle.

“It’s not too hard, just a little change of footwork and hands,” Webb said. “Anywhere coach needs me to play, I try my best. In this offense you’ve got to be able to play both sides, and anytime things happen you’ve got to step up and be ready when you’re called upon.”

After starting 12 games at right tackle as a rookie in 2010, Webb opened all 32 games at left tackle the past two seasons. He was shifted back to the right side this offseason after the Bears signed veteran free agent left tackle Jermon Bushrod, who has been voted to the last two Pro Bowls.

With Bushrod (calf) and Jonathan Scott (knee) sidelined Thursday with minor injuries, Britton worked with the first-team offense for the second straight day.

“You just have to accept [injuries] as part of training camp,” said coach Marc Trestman. “Fortunately, ‘Bush’ will be back and Jonathan will be back and we’ll have a whole group in there.

“The injury situation, we can turn a negative into a positive by working guys at different positions and see where we might be in the season. We’ve still got eight or nine practices here [in Bourbonnais] before we leave, and we’ll use every day to try to get better.”
