Bears RT Jordan Mills (foot) is on track to participate in OTAs.

Bears RT Jordan Mills' left foot surgery repaired a fractured fifth metatarsal.

He did not suffer a Lisfranc fracture, and is expected to be ready for spring workouts this pay, per the Chicago Tribune. Mills started all 16 games as a fifth-round rookie and is likely to return as a starter for his second year.

Bears RT Jordan Mills underwent surgery to repair the foot injury he suffered in Week 17.

The extent is unknown, but a Lisfranc fracture could threaten Mills' availability for 2014 training camp. As a fifth-round rookie, Mills started all 16 games for Chicago but graded out exceptionally poorly in Pro Football Focus' ratings, finishing 74th among 76 qualifying offensive tackles. He's still likely to enter 2014 as a starter assuming the rehab goes smoothly.

Bears RT Jordan Mills was forced from Chicago's Week 17 game against the Packers with a foot injury, and will not return.

The quick rule suggests Mills' injury is serious. Eben Britton is now in the game at right tackle. A fifth-round rookie, Mills started all 16 games this season, but has graded out as a bottom-three tackle in Pro Football Focus' ratings.

Fifth-round pick Jordan Mills has won the Bears' starting right tackle job.

Mills started the second and third preseason games, and Jay Cutler "clearly" feels comfortable with a rookie right side of Mills and RG Kyle Long. The Bears' O-Line is coming together. If the season began today, it would involve LT Jermon Bushrod, LG Matt Slauson, C Roberto Garza, RG Long, and RT Mills. It's still a bottom-five unit on paper, but has played well together in August.

The Bears emerged from their preseason opener with rookie Jordan Mills practicing as the starting right tackle.

J'Marcus Webb, at least for now, has been benched. Mills is a fifth-round pick out of Louisiana Tech. RG James Brown has also been benched, and replaced by first-round pick Kyle Long. It's a reminder Chicago's offensive line remains in prove-it mode, despite numerous offseason additions. Starting two rookies on the right would be concerning for Jay Cutler's front-side protection.

Bears fifth-round pick Jordan Mills is a candidate to start at right tackle.

Mills has reportedly impressed the Bears coaching staff during OTAs and minicamp. He enters training camp behind J'Marcus Webb for a starting job, but could make veteran Jonathan Scott expendable with a strong preseason.

Bears agreed to terms with No. 167 overall pick G/T Jordan Mills on a four-year contract.

Mills is the first draft pick to sign. The Bears moved quickly to lock up their picks in 2012, and are expected to do so again this season. GM Phil Emery singled out Mills' versatility as one of the main reasons the Bears drafted him. "We'll probably start him out at right tackle and let him learn a little bit and we'll move him around." Mills has prototypical left-tackle size (6-foot-5, 316 pounds, 34-inch arms), but limited athleticism means he'll stick at right tackle and guard.

Bears GM Phil Emery cited fifth-round pick Jordan Mills' versatility as one of the primary reasons they liked him before the draft.

They're projecting Mills (6-foot-5, 316 with 34-inch arms) as a versatile reserve, capable of playing both guard and right tackle. "We'll probably start him out at right tackle and let him learn a little bit and we'll move him around," Emery said. "Big part of the reason we drafted him was his versatility."

Bears selected Louisiana Tech T/G Jordan Mills with the No. 163 overall pick.

Mills (6-foot-5, 316) has prototypical tackle build with 34-inch arms, and drew raves for his Senior Bowl performance. A right tackle at Louisiana Tech, Mills may have to kick to guard in the pros due to limited athleticism. He also managed only 20 bench-press reps. Mills does have a high enough long-term ceiling to develop into a starting guard or perhaps right tackle. The Bears will view him as a versatile reserve in year one.
