Lost in all the hoopla surrounding the left tackle battle is the health of Gabe Carimi and his knee. We still don't know how healthy Carimi's knee is and will he be able to handle the grind of a 16 game season.
Early on in camp Carimi's knee didn't even hold up through the rigors of training camp and there are reports that Carimi has at times looked uncomfortable in practice.
No one knows the extent of pain Carimi is experiencing, and Carimi certainly isn't letting it out that his knee is bothering him.
According to Jeremy Stoltz of Bear Report magazine a reporter even asked Carimi if his knee is bothering him and Carimi rightfully didn't let on. However there wasn't a denial either rather a careful wording of how he's feeling and how he's getting better.
Stoltz also let on that there has been times where it looks like Carimi is paying extra attention to his knee in practice, as if he isn't yet confident in the health of it.

The Bears have been looking outside the organization for an interior pass rusher all offseason. Yet with Israel Idonije, the solution may have been on the roster all along.
Paea aims for return:
Defensive tackle Stephen Paea suffered an ankle injury on Saturday and has been out since then.
He was out of his walking boot and told the media in Bourbonnais that he would try to return to practice by next week.
Without Paea in practice, Matt Toeaina earns another chance at being the starter heading into the season.
