Draft Scout Kyle Long News
10/07/15 - T Kyle Long was limited in practice Wednesday due to back and ankle injuries he suffered in Sunday's win. Long no longer is playing with a soft cast on his right hand. He had it on there for an unspecified injury the first three games of the season.
06/17/15 - G Kyle Long remained at tackle again Wednesday at the Bears minicamp, but this time moved over to the left side instead of the right.
Head coach John Fox called it more a case of building depth and versatility into the line at a time when the team can afford this.
"I think it's an injustice to just throw a guy, even as simple as it sounds, left to right, whether you're doing it with a corner or an outside backer or a guard or a tackle -- they need to practice it," Fox said. "This is a good time of the year to kind of get the technique, the sets, and all of the different communication that has to happen with the O-line."
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.
