Whether you're watching the joke that is the Chicago Bears' offense or not, you likely know how bad their offensive line is. They cannot block anyone. When they do it well enough to gain 100 rushing yards against Tampa Bay, they have nothing to complement that with. They need help on the offensive line.

That all may be changing, albeit unlikely under the control of Matt Nagy, with the news coming from lineman Jason Peters himself.

Larry Borom and Teven Jenkins

According to the veteran Jason Peters, OL Larry Borom is returning to the Bears this week. He was playing well in training camp before getting injured and had higher expectations because of it. Borom should provide some stability on the offensive line or at the very least, more depth in an offensive line rotation.

Jason Peters also said that rookie Teven Jenkins will be back in a few weeks. While this news is good, it's not likely that Jenkins will get a large workload once available. The Bears are not close to winning anything in 2021 and there is no reason to rush the young lineman back into the trenches.

The Bears need all the help on the offensive line that they can get. Larry Borom returning is the perfect place to start. Hopefully they can follow this up with a healthy Jenkins and a plethora of names removed from the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
