Carimi slowly working his way back

A day after was able to do some light work at practice, tackle Gabe Carimi spent Wednesdays OTA session wearing his No. 72 jersey but also a baseball cap and sitting out any sort of practice work. Thats how its going to be for a while with the 2011 No. 1 draft choice as he tries to return from a season-ending knee injury and two subsequent surgeries.

Were taking it slow right now, team review and individual and stuff like that, Carimi said Wednesday. But its feeling great. I feel like Im explosive off of it right now, and hopefully Ill keep progressing and get even better.

So do the Bears, after line coach Mike Tice declared Carimi our best offensive lineman at the time of Carimis injury.

He isnt going to be hurried, and practices this time of year are of marginal value as far as determining the playing condition of linemen.

On Wednesday it was journeyman Mansfield Wrotto and undrafted rookie free agent James Brown stepping in at right tackle, with JMarcus Webb and Chris Williams taking snaps at left tackle.

We always had a plan that we werent going to practice today, so I get to come out tomorrow and get to do what I did on Tuesday, Carimi said.
