The Bears offensive line has improved dramatically over the last month, but now they are about to face a new challenge.

Starting guard Chris Williams is expected to miss the rest of the season following wrist surgery, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.

Bears coach Lovie Smith only confirmed that Williams would be out “a while.”  This news comes after first round pick Gabe Carimi underwent surgery earlier this week.

Edwin Williams replaced Chris Williams at left guard on Sunday in Chicago’s huge win over Detroit.
