Bears RG Kyle Long (injured reserve) will undergo surgery on both his shoulder and ankle.
The ankle surgery is considered "minor." The shoulder operation will repair a torn labrum. That can be a tedious recovery, but Long should be ready for training camp next summer, and definitely Week 1. 15 days shy of his 28th birthday, Long is signed through 2021. Nov 20 - 12:38 PM

Bears RG Kyle Long (ankle) is done for the season.

Just when things looked like they might be getting slightly better for the Bears following their Week 9 upset of the Vikings, they have endured a worst-case scenario last day and a half. Jay Cutler was atrocious against the Bucs, the Bears lost their best offensive lineman for the year, and Alshon Jeffery is suspended for the next month. The Bears have Long under contract through 2021.
Nov 14 - 4:45 PM

The Chicago Tribune's Dan Wiederer reports the Bears expect to be without RG Kyle Long (ankle) "for an extended period."

Long's injury certainly looked serious as he was being carted off the field. Long has battled through several injuries this season, but it is possible this one finally sends him to injured reserve. Ted Larsen stepped in at right guard after Long left.
Nov 14 - 9:24 AM

Bears RG Kyle Long left Sunday's Week 10 game against the Buccaneers with a right ankle injury and will not return.

Long was carted off in the second quarter. It looked like he had his ankle rolled on by teammate Paul Lasike. With Long out and Bobby Massie in the concussion protocol, the Bears' offensive line is in rough shape. Ted Larsen is in at right guard.
Nov 13 - 2:15 PM

Bears RG Kyle Long (triceps) returned to practice Monday.

LG Josh Sitton (ankle) also returned. A practice this early in the week suggests both players will be ready to face the Bucs. Considering how well the Bears ran the ball without their two Pro Bowl guards before the bye, Jordan Howard should find a lot of success this week with both back healthy.
Nov 8 - 9:33 AM

Bears RG Kyle Long (triceps) is doubtful for Monday night against the Vikings.

The Bears could get Josh Sitton (ankle, questionable) back, but they will be without Long. It is a massive blow in an extremely tough matchup.
Oct 29 - 1:56 PM

Bears RG Kyle Long left Thursday's Week 7 game against the Packers with an arm injury and is questionable to return.

He exited in the second quarter. Long has been playing through a torn labrum in his shoulder, but this injury appears to be separate from that. Ted Larsen has entered the game at right guard.
Oct 20 - 9:53 PM

Bears RG Kyle Long confirmed he will be able to play through his shoulder injury.

"I can play football," he said. Long started and played well Week 1 against the Texans, and he and Josh Sitton should form a stellar guard group if he is able to stay on the field. The Bears still have serious questions at tackle, but the interior group is solid.
Sep 13 - 9:41 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Bears RG Kyle Long will play this season with a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

We knew Long was dealing with a "labrum issue," but this both confirms it is torn and Long will play through the injury all season. It is not uncommon for linemen to play through shoulder injuries, but it is possible both his strength and effectiveness is compromised. Still, an injured Kyle Long is better than anything else the Bears could trot out there at right guard.
Sep 11 - 10:17 AM

Bears RG Kyle Long (shoulder, questionable) is expected to play Week 1 against the Texans.

Long was limited at practice all week but he was never in danger of missing Week 1. Aside from concerns at center, the Bears should have a strong interior this year with Long and ex-Packer Josh Sitton manning the two guard positions.
Sep 11 - 9:02 AM

Bears RG Kyle Long (shoulder) returned to practice Monday.

It puts Long on track to play Week 1. Long signed a four-year, $40 million extension on Saturday, confirming the Bears were never worried about his health. When everyone gets up to speed, Chicago's starting line will be as follows: LT Charles Leno, LG Josh Sitton, C Cody Whitehair, RG Long, and RT Bobby Massie.
Sep 5 - 5:20 PM

Bears signed RG Kyle Long to a four-year, $40 million extension.

It contains $30 million guaranteed. The former No. 20 overall pick has been shuttled between positions in Chicago, but has played exceptionally well wherever the Bears put him. He's dealing with a shoulder injury at the moment, but there's been little word on its severity. He could be back Week 1.
Sep 3 - 4:51 PM

The Chicago Tribune reports RG Kyle Long has missed the Bears' last three practices with a "labrum issue" in his shoulder.

One source the Tribune spoke to was "not optimistic about the situation," while another source (presumably Long's agent) "was confident Long would return for Week 1. The Bears already lost starting C Hroniss Grasu to a year-ending ACL tear. Coach John Fox was predictably vague when asked about Long's timetable for return. "It doesn't really matter what I think," Fox said. "There are medical people involved and when he's cleared, he'll play."
Aug 24 - 10:19 AM

Bears RG Kyle Long (calf) returned to practice Wednesday.

Long only missed about a week of action after suffering a calf strain last week. The 2013 first-rounder is moving back to guard after playing right tackle last season. Free-agent pickup Bobby Massie is the new right tackle.
Aug 3 - 12:53 PM

Bears GM Ryan Pace said the outlook is "positive" for RG Kyle Long (calf).

Long strained his calf on Thursday. "You know how he is, you’ve got to hold him back a little bit," Pace said, "but it’s positive on Kyle." The talented right guard is expected to return to practice in the next couple weeks. His status for Week 1 does not appear to be in any doubt.
