Another Fight at Bears Camp: Kyle Long and a Rookie

Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears’ night-time scrimmage practice attempted to simulate everything that could happen in a preseason game. There were 60 scripted plays, liberal use of the Bear-raid siren Matt Nagy has come to love, piped in crowd noise, and a DJ who played “Bear Down, Chicago Bears” after scoring plays.

But there was one thing the Bears couldn’t script … and it wasn’t pretty:

For the second time this week, a fight broke out during a Bears practice. This time it was veteran offensive lineman Kyle Long mixing it up with rookie defensive lineman Jalen Dalton. And while I get that brothers fight, this is far over the top.

Long ripping off Dalton’s helmet, then using it to fight him, and ultimately throwing it down the field is a bad look. That is not what you want to see from anyone, let alone one your team leaders. Nagy clearly did not like what he saw from the longest-tenured player on the Bears offense, disciplining Long by removing him from the scrimmage. Even still … Long must remember those actions would come with major repercussions if it happened in a game of consequence. So with that in mind, the hope is that is the last we will see of that nonsense ever again.
