Draft Scout Kyle Long News
12/03/13 - RG Kyle Long suffered an ankle injury in the game and wore a boot cast to stabilize it afterward. However, Trestman said the injury is not serious and shouldn't keep Long from playing Monday night.
11/26/13 - RG Kyle Long was fined $8,000 for his behavior in a near brawl during the Rams game. Long's most serious crime in the incident was kicking at Rams defensive end William Hayes.
11/20/13 - G Kyle Long said it might be confusing for fans Sunday with three Longs on the field: himself, brother Chris and Rams tackle Jake Long.
"I was at a (autograph) signing (Tuesday) and a guy walked up to me and said, ‘Jake, I was very skeptical of the pick but you've had some very good tackles this year.' My head almost exploded out of confusion," Kyle Long said. "He's there getting a ball signed, he's got a Bears jersey, hundreds of dollars on memorabilia and, ‘I'm Kyle, man, I play on the offensive line.' I signed it Kyle but he wouldn't have known either way, I don't think."
09/19/13 - G Kyle Long practiced on a limited basis Wednesday due to a back injury. The fact Long did get on the field indicates the Bears don't expect this is a serious injury, but James Brown would be Long's backup if the problem lingers. Brown started out as a tackle when he came to Chicago as an undrafted rookie last year but was moved to guard and had the spot at the outset of training camp before Long became more familiar. Brown is a little less mobile, definitely better at run blocking at this point than pass blocking.
09/04/13 - RG Kyle Long will get to face Pro Bowl DT Geno Atkins in his debut. "It's something that you grew up watching guys like Geno Atkins," he said. "So obviously to get a chance to play against him will be a real test." Long discounts the talk that speed of play will be much quicker in the regular season for himself and rookie RT Jordan Mills. "In all honesty, there's fast guys out here at practice, so we've seen the speed," he said. "We understand that this one counts."
