Bears OT Carimi Easing Way Back from Knee Surgery
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- Gabe Carimi took a big step in his recovery from a season-ending injury to his right knee when he participated in organized team activities for the first time on Tuesday.

Carimi was a spectator as planned on Wednesday, but he expects to be on the field Thursday and take part in all sessions next week.

Carimi is expected to start again at right tackle after getting the nod for the first two games last year. His rookie season came to an end when he dislocated his knee against New Orleans in the second game. He returned to practice briefly before having an arthroscopic procedure in November.

He also had surgery in late December to repair connective tissue around his patella and medial collateral ligament.
