|Cutler, Williams Starting To Click For Bears
|LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- The Chicago Bears are seeing signs that wide receiver Roy Williams is becoming a key component in the passing game after a slow start.
The former Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions player has made seven catches for 101 yards and a touchdown the last two games as he improved his chemistry with quarterback Jay Cutler.
Williams also has a knack for downfield blocking. His key block Sunday helped spring running back Matt Forte for a 32-yard TD run.
A groin injury plagued Williams early in the season, but he played through it. With Williams healthy and Earl Bennett back after a chest injury, the Bears have their entire receiver corps healthy for the first time since the season-opener.
