Bears C Hroniss Grasu to make first career start vs. Chiefs
The Chicago Bears must turn to their third-round draft pick in Week 5, as rookie center Hroniss Grasu will get his first career start against the Kansas City Chiefs, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.
#Bears will start Hroniss Grasu at center with Matt Slauson at LG. Josh Bellamy and Marquess Wilson start at WR.

Grasu is starting in place of Will Montgomery, who broke his leg last week and went on injured reserve. When Montgomery’s injury occurred, Matt Slauson moved over from left guard to center and Patrick Omameh came in off the bench to play guard. Omameh is out for Sunday’s game versus the Chiefs, so it’s time for Grasu to make his rookie debut as a starter.
As Biggs also mentions in his Tweet, Josh Bellamy and Marquess Wilson will start for the Bears at wide receiver in place of Eddie Royal and Alshon Jeffery, who’s missing a fourth consecutive game.
