Same old questions for Bears on line

By GENE CHAMBERLAIN

BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (AP) - The Chicago Bears completed Bourbonnais training camp practices Tuesday looking much the same way as last year, juggling their offensive line and without their starting middle linebacker.

Rookies Kyle Long and Jordan Mills will be protecting Jay Cutler at right guard and tackle when the Bears play Thursday at Soldier Field against San Diego. Rookie middle linebacker Jonathan Bostic will continue to play in place of starter D.J. Williams, whose calf injury could keep him out throughout the preseason.

Right tackle J'Marcus Webb has 44 starts for the Bears but has been benched in favor of Mills.

Cutler said he's not entirely uncomfortable playing behind a pair of rookie blockers.
