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.
Sep 24 - 11:46 AM

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.
Sep 22 - 2:09 PM

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.
Sep 17 - 3:29 PM

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.
May 21 - 10:45 PM

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.

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.

The Chicago Tribune reports LG Josh Sitton (doubtful, ankle) is expected to miss Week 7 against the Packers.

Sitton was an unexpected cut from the Packers prior to the season, but won't get to face his former team. He could be sidelined for multiple games after going down in Week 6. Ted Larsen will start until Sitton returns.
Wed, Oct 19, 2016 07:09:00 PM

According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, Bears LG Josh Sitton is expected to miss "some time" with an ankle injury.

Ted Larsen filled in at left guard after Sitton went down in Week 6. Either Larsen or Eric Kush will get the nod Thursday against Green Bay. Through six games, Sitton owns PFF's third-highest guard grade out of 78 qualifiers. It's a big blow to the Bears' offensive line.
Tue, Oct 18, 2016 11:22:00 AM

Bears signed OG Josh Sitton, formerly of the Packers, to a three-year, $21.75 million contract.

The deal includes $10 million guaranteed. Predictably for a player coming off a Pro Bowl year, Sitton did not have to wait long to find a new home. Sitton will take over for second-round rookie Cody Whitehair at left guard, with Whitehair perhaps moving down to cover the Bears' troublesome center spot. If Kyle Long (shoulder) can get healthy, Chicago will boast one of the best guard duos in the league.

Free agent OG Josh Sitton will visit the Bears.

If he leaves without a contract, his next visit will be with New Orleans. Green Bay's decision to move on from Sitton was a head-scratcher and now the division-rival Bears have a chance to hit the Packers where it hurts. The Bears are vulnerable at left guard with second-round rookie Cody Whitehair set to replace Matt Slauson. If he chooses the Bears, Sitton and Kyle Long would make a formidable duo at guard.
