Bears RT Jordan Mills (foot) is expected to be ready for Sunday's opener against the Bills.

Mills was held out for the entire preseason as he completed his recovery from foot surgery, but resumed practicing on August 20. "If I had to (play), I would have," Mills said of August. "I'm very ready." A 2013 fifth-rounder, Mills was among the league's poorer right tackles as a rookie.

There's concern that Bears RT Jordan Mills (foot) is in danger of missing Week 1.

Mills is listed as day to day, but he hasn't played in a preseason game yet and has been spotted with a walking boot sporadically throughout camp. He underwent left foot surgery in January. When asked if his starting right tackle is in doubt for the opener, coach Marc Trestman said, "I'm hopeful that it's not. I'm not trying to get you to insinuate anything. I'm just hopeful it's not." Mills was the weakest member of the Bears' improved line last season.

Bears RT Jordan Mills (foot) has been medically cleared for the start of camp.

Mills had surgery to repair a fractured fifth metatarsal way back in January. Although Mills is billed as having solidified the Bears' right tackle position last year, he was the weak link of Chicago's offensive line. PFF charged Mills with 62 QB hurries allowed, the most in the NFL among tackles. The Bears will hope for improvement in Mills' second year. Mills won't turn 24 until Christmas eve.

Bears RT Jordan Mills (foot) is sitting out mandatory minicamp.

According to coach Marc Trestman, the Bears are trying to be "smart" with Mills' healing process. Mills suffered a fractured fifth metatarsal last Week 17, but avoided a dreaded Lisfranc injury. He could begin camp on the active/PUP list, but is fully expected to be ready for Week 1.

Bears RT Jordan Mills (foot) is on track to participate in OTAs.

Mills underwent foot surgery in January, but isn't expected to miss a significant portion of the offseason program. A fifth-round pick last year, Mills started all 16 games as a rookie and will return as a starter when healthy.

Bears RT Jordan Mills' left foot surgery repaired a fractured fifth metatarsal.

He did not suffer a Lisfranc fracture, and is expected to be ready for spring workouts this pay, per the Chicago Tribune. Mills started all 16 games as a fifth-round rookie and is likely to return as a starter for his second year.

Bears RT Jordan Mills underwent surgery to repair the foot injury he suffered in Week 17.

The extent is unknown, but a Lisfranc fracture could threaten Mills' availability for 2014 training camp. As a fifth-round rookie, Mills started all 16 games for Chicago but graded out exceptionally poorly in Pro Football Focus' ratings, finishing 74th among 76 qualifying offensive tackles. He's still likely to enter 2014 as a starter assuming the rehab goes smoothly.

Bears RT Jordan Mills was forced from Chicago's Week 17 game against the Packers with a foot injury, and will not return.

The quick rule suggests Mills' injury is serious. Eben Britton is now in the game at right tackle. A fifth-round rookie, Mills started all 16 games this season, but has graded out as a bottom-three tackle in Pro Football Focus' ratings.

Fifth-round pick Jordan Mills has won the Bears' starting right tackle job.

Mills started the second and third preseason games, and Jay Cutler "clearly" feels comfortable with a rookie right side of Mills and RG Kyle Long. The Bears' O-Line is coming together. If the season began today, it would involve LT Jermon Bushrod, LG Matt Slauson, C Roberto Garza, RG Long, and RT Mills. It's still a bottom-five unit on paper, but has played well together in August.
Sun, Aug 25, 2013 01:41:00 PM

The Bears emerged from their preseason opener with rookie Jordan Mills practicing as the starting right tackle.

J'Marcus Webb, at least for now, has been benched. Mills is a fifth-round pick out of Louisiana Tech. RG James Brown has also been benched, and replaced by first-round pick Kyle Long. It's a reminder Chicago's offensive line remains in prove-it mode, despite numerous offseason additions. Starting two rookies on the right would be concerning for Jay Cutler's front-side protection.

Bears fifth-round pick Jordan Mills is a candidate to start at right tackle.

Mills has reportedly impressed the Bears coaching staff during OTAs and minicamp. He enters training camp behind J'Marcus Webb for a starting job, but could make veteran Jonathan Scott expendable with a strong preseason.
