Bears LG Josh Sitton (ankle) and RT Bobby Massie (knee) are both listed as doubtful for Week 17.
They're also missing RG Kyle Long, who was placed on I.R. a few weeks back. Jordan Howard already had a tough Week 17 draw against a Vikings defense allowing the NFL's fewest fantasy points to running backs. Fri, Dec 29, 2017 02:13:00 PM

Bears declared LG Josh Sitton (ankle) inactive for Sunday's Week 16 game versus the Browns.

Sitton missed practice both Thursday and Friday with an ankle injury. Currently ranking sixth in run blocking for all guards per Pro Football Focus, Sitton's absence will be missed in the run game. With Tom Compton also out along with Sitton, expect Hroniss Grasu to start at C, while Cody Whitehair and Bradley Sowell to start at each guard spot for Chicago. QB, Mark Sanchez, CB Deiondre Hall, RB Taquan Mizzell, DT Rashaad Coward, OL Tom Compton and TE Adam Shaheen are also inactive for Chicago Sunday.

Bears LG Josh Sitton exited Week 12 against the Eagles with a concussion.

Sitton exited in the second quarter and was quickly placed in the protocol. Bradley Sowell replaced him in the lineup. Already struggling to do anything, losing Sitton is a big blow to the offense.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports "teams are calling" the Bears about LG Josh Sitton ahead of Tuesday afternoon's trade deadline.

It's a bit out of left field. The Bears won't be making the postseason, but they might be reluctant to weaken their offensive line with a rookie quarterback. Sitton is performing well in his age-31 campaign. He's signed for next season, though at a pricey $8 million between salary and bonuses. Tom Compton would slide in alongside Kyle Long were Sitton to be dealt.

Bears RG Josh Sitton (ribs) is questionable for Week 4 against the Packers.

Sitton sat out Sunday's game with a rib injury but should be fine to play Thursday night after putting in a limited week of practice. Hroniss Grasu (hand) is also questionable for Week 4 while Nick Kwiatkoski is doubtful with a torn pectoral. Quintin Demps (forearm) has already been ruled out.

Bears declared RG Josh Sitton, S Deon Bush, TE Daniel Brown, DL John Jenkins, ILB Nick Kwiatkoski, RB Taquan Mizzell and QB Mark Sanchez inactive for Week 3 against the Steelers.

Sitton is nursing a rib injury he suffered in Week 2 while Kwiatkoski is week to week with a torn pectoral. Prince Amukamara (ankle), Tom Compton (hip), Benny Cunningham (ankle), Akiem Hicks (shoulder), Jordan Howard (shoulder), Kyle Long (ankle), Markus Wheaton (finger) and Kendall Wright (shoulder) are all active for Sunday's 1 PM ET start.

Bears RG Josh Sitton (rib) is listed as doubtful for Week 3.

It's more bad news for Jordan Howard, who isn't healthy himself. When healthy, Sitton is one of the best guards in football. We wonder if he has a broken rib.

Bears RG Josh Sitton was forced from Sunday's game against the Bears with a rib injury, and will not return.

Fellow starter Kyle Long was already sidelined with an ankle issue, while fill-in Tom Compson (hip) was knocked out earlier on Sunday. The Bears are apparently down to their "last reserve" offensive lineman.

The Bears will flip flop their guards this season, moving Josh Sitton to right guard with Kyle Long kicking to left guard.

The Bears have made a habit of toying with Long's position, previously trying him at right tackle before kicking him back to his natural right guard spot, and now moving him to the left. The reasons for the latest switch are unclear, but Long is believed to have lost a ton of weight while rehabbing multiple injuries. Sitton saw action at both left and right guard during his Packers tenure.

Bears LG Josh Sitton (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Week 12.

As RG Kyle Long (shoulder/ankle) was lost for the season two weeks ago, the Bears will be without both of their starting guards with Matt Barkley under center and Cameron Meredith as their No. 1 receiver and Logan Paulsen as their No. 1 tight end. This is an offense to target with Tennessee's fantasy defense.

Bears LG Josh Sitton was forced from Sunday's game against the Giants with an ankle injury, and will not return.

Sitton has been bothered by ankle issues for the past month. He was carted to the locker room in the third quarter. It's yet another devastating loss for a Bears offense that has few starter-quality players left.
Sun, Nov 20, 2016 03:18:00 PM

Bears LG Josh Sitton (ankle) returned to practice Monday.

It puts him on track to play this week against the Bucs. Kyle Long (triceps) also returned, giving the Bears a great shot to have their offensive line fully healthy against Tampa.

Bears declared LG Josh Sitton, RG Kyle Long, NT Eddie Goldman, TE Daniel Brown, CB Bryce Callahan, CB Deiondre' Hall, and WR Eddie Royal inactive for Week 8 against the Vikings.

Good luck protecting Jay Cutler. The Bears' offensive tackle situation is already one of the worst in the league, and now they lose their two best offensive linemen. Sitton has an ankle issue, while Long is battling triceps and shoulder injuries. Giddy up, Vikings defense. Interior pocket-pushers Linval Joseph and Tom Johnson are frothing at the mouth. Royal has a toe injury.

Bears LG Josh Sitton (ankle) is questionable for Monday night against the Vikings.

Sitton got in his second straight limited practice Saturday, but coach John Fox said his status is "a tough one to call." It sounds like he is a game-time decision. The Bears will be without RG Kyle Long (triceps).
Sat, Oct 29, 2016 01:58:00 PM

Bears declared LG Josh Sitton, QB Jay Cutler, DL Eddie Goldman, CB Deiondre' Hall, S Deandre Houston-Carson, RB Jeremy Langford and WR Eddie Royal inactive for Week 7 against the Packers.

All are injured except for Houston-Carson. Sutton is week to week with an ankle injury. Bryce Callahan (hamstring), Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring), Leonard Floyd (calf), Jerrell Freeman (wrist), Zach Miller (ribs) and Tracy Porter (knee) are all active for the Bears.
