Kyle Long Ruled Out For Tomorrow

Chicago Bears

The Bears will once again be without guard Kyle Long tomorrow:

So, your silver lining embedded in there is that all the other players on the injury report – running back Jordan Howard (shoulder), wide receiver Markus Wheaton (pinkie finger), outside linebacker Leonard Floyd (back), cornerback Prince Amukamara (ankle), reserve linebacker Christian Jones (back), safety Deon Bush (hamstring), and receiver Josh Bellamy (ankle) – are all plausibly going to be available to play.

As for long, his ankle still isn’t quite ready for game action, and the line will once again have to make due without him. Tom Compton started in Long’s place last week, and figures to get the job again tomorrow.

Overall, the line performed well last week, and will need to do so again if the Bears want to have a chance to give Mike Glennon enough time back there (he generally doesn’t create much of his own time with his legs), and if they want to give the running backs a chance against a likely stacked front.
