The Chicago Bears got some good news during their Organized Team Activities on Tuesday. Via Jeff Dickerson of ESPNChicago.com, 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.
