LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - Jonathan Bostic hopes to make the most of his opportunity.

The Chicago Bears have been known for middle linebackers from Bill George to Dick Butkus to Mike Singletary and Brian Urlacher.

Now Bostic, a rookie from Florida with a reputation for big plays and big hits, makes his first NFL start Sunday against the Washington Redskins in place of D.J. Williams, who is out for the season with a ruptured pectoral tendon.

``Every week I'm preparing like I'm the starter, anyway,'' Bostic said Monday. ``It's just really the fact of how it kind of happened.

``You always hear `next man up, anything can happen,' but the situation that happened, it's kind of like, man, these things really do happen.''
