Draft Scout Kyle Long News
10/12/17 - G Kyle Long (ankle) did not practice Thursday (Oct. 12) after practicing on Wednesday. Head coach John Fox did not characterize it as a setback, but more as maintenance of Long's old injury from last year. Long did leave Sunday's game for a play with an unannounced leg injury, but quickly returned and finished the game. If Long can't play Sunday, the Bears could use Hroniss Grasu at center and move Cody Whitehair from center to guard. Grasu practiced on a limited basis Thursday as he recovers from a Week 2 hand injury.
09/25/17 - LG Kyle Long played for the first time this season after recovering from ankle surgery.
09/21/17 - G Kyle Long (ankle) went through a full practice on Thursday (Sept. 21) for the first time since the season started, and has been in successive practices this week. He is expected to play Sunday after he had practiced Wednesday on a limited basis. How he handles practicing this many times in succession will be a key to whether he's able to play all of Sunday's game.
The Bears are in need of Long's return because right guard Josh Sitton hasn't practiced this week due to a rib injury and backup guard Tom Compton is trying to practice despite a hip injury. Long last played in a game on Nov. 13 against Tampa.
"Our medical people think he's ready, our coaches think he's ready, we'll see how much he can endure, whether we have him with any kind of a pitch count, but right now it's looking very promising," head coach John Fox said.
09/20/17 - G Kyle Long probably would be at left guard if he returns from his ankle injury this week. It's possible he might have been back for the opener but he said he suffered a setback in recovery from surgery.
09/18/17 - G Kyle Long (ankle) was questionable, but did not make the trip to Tampa Bay after practicing on a limited basis throughout last week. Long is day-to-day and it's possible he could return this week against Pittsburgh. "I'm getting closer and closer," Long said at the end of last week's practices. "I wouldn't be able to tell you 100 percent, but I will say I'm a lot further along than I was."
