Draft Scout Kyle Long News
02/21/15 - G Kyle Long could switch to tackle, but no decision has been made. That move would take better advantage of his athletic abilities at a more difficult position to play. The start of a new coaching regime seems like an ideal time to do this.
"He's very athletic and he's very well-rounded," GM Ryan Pace said. "I think he can play multiple positions on the offensive line. Again, that's ongoing, too. That fit, with him. He has that skill set. We haven't gotten that specific with him yet."
12/22/14 - RG Kyle Long had suffered a late-week hip injury that limited him at Friday's practice and was a last-minute scratch for the game. This meant a start for the Michael Ola at right guard for the first time, while Ryan Groy started at left guard. It was the ninth different starting offensive line used by the Bears this season, but they had only two sacks Sunday, two less than Detroit's Matthew Stafford was sacked.
08/05/14 - RG Kyle Long has returned to practice after missing more than a week to start camp with a viral infection.
07/30/14 - OG Kyle Long received clearance to return to practice after a viral infection kept him out of it for five practices. However, he'll be worked back in gradually. Coach Marc Trestman said it would be the weekend before he begins to put on pads.
"He's got to get his legs back underneath him," Trestman said, adding, "So he's missed out, no doubt about it, and we'll to accelerate the process as soon as he gets back in there."
The offense functioned fine while he was away because veteran Eben Britton filled in, but the offensive line depth is largely untested, much as the receiver depth is. The Bears offensive line did not have a starter miss a game last year, and Britton played in the regular-season finale due to an in-game foot injury to right tackle Jordan Mills.
07/26/14 - RG Kyle Long began camp on the non-football illness list, so T-G Eben Britton played with the starters in his place when practices began. Long is suffering from a viral illness and will be re-evaluated early next week after arriving Thursday for the opening of training camp.
