A couple of notes: It remains to be seen how soon Mike Tepper will rejoin the offensive line. Jeff Tedford has all but said Tepper won’t start the opener, so this is the composition of the O-line for now. Tepper was supposed to start at left tackle this season with Teofilo at right tackle. With Teofilo and Schwartz playing well, you might see some rotation on the line once Tepper gets healthy. … Nothing has been made official with the wide receivers, but those are the starters based on recent practices. … The Bears continue to use several punt and kick returners at practice. I think Syd’Quan Thompson is the favorite to return punts, but his sprained shoulder has kept him out for awhile. Best should be the top kick returner.
