Chicago Bears starting right tackle Gabe Carimi, who suffered a dislocated knee last season, says his leg feels great and he will begin practicing in full this week during OTAs.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- It's not as if 2011 first-round draft pick Gabe Carimi has become a forgotten man, but it seems like a long time since he won the starting job at right tackle during training camp of his rookie season. Carimi lasted less than two games before a dislocated kneecap ultimately resulted in two surgeries and a lost season, and quick comparisons were made to...
