The Chicago Bears got some good news during their Organized Team Activities on Tuesday.  Via Jeff Dickerson of, Carimi said Tuesday night that he practiced with the team.

First day back at practice went great,” Carimi disclosed via Twitter. “Just need to keep up the hard work to get back to where I want to be.”

Tuesday’s session was closed.  Thus, the extent of Carimi’s participation isn’t known.  Wednesday’s session will be open to the media.

The team’s first-round pick in 2011, Carimi opened the season as the starting right tackle.  He suffered a knee injury in Week Two and didn’t play again during his rookie year.

If Carimi stays healthy, he’ll likely return to the starting lineup, as the right tackle.

  1. Hate the Bears but being a Badger fan I want him to do well. Sure he isn’t at Wisconsin anymore but the more great pros Wisconsin has the better it is for recruiting. So conflicted.

  2. If that isn’t a prototypical 60’s era football name,then I don’t know what one is…

  3. glad he is a bear but hate everything about wisconsin. I hate the arroant jerk who coaches them who has no problem running up the score against weaker teams buts chokes in games against the big boys. the only school in the big ten I root against in bowl games.they are right up there with dame as the college team I hate the most.

  4. This is great news. Hopefully him and chris williams can seal the edges. If the o-line plays as “big” as they are across the line. It will be super bowl super bears.

  5. metalhead65, someone mad that they don’t have one decent college football team in their state? Have to import players from the north. Not our fault kids from Illinois can’t play football.

  6. @whitecastle; I get it!
    @bucky; he’s just like Ted Albrecht who led the Bears out of that late 60s-70s funk…. nothing like a solid UW lineman! Don’t be conflicted, it’s NFC North football, man!
