Starters expected to play extended minutes
The Chicago Bears will use their third preseason outing against the visiting Kansas City Chiefs to iron out final wrinkles in their offense but will have to do so without offensive lineman Kyle Long for a few more weeks it seems…the coaching staff have been less than transparent on Long’s return.
“It doesn’t really matter what I think,” Head Coach John Fox said. “There are medical people involved and when he’s cleared, he’ll play.”
The team has him listed as probable for tomorrows game against the Chiefs, who plan on playing their starters possibly into the third quarter.
“That’s kind of the way people do it around the league and that’s how we do it here,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “We’re going to keep knocking the rust off and getting ourselves game ready.”
The Chiefs are listing both LB Tamba Hali and QB Tyler Bray as questionable while the Bears are listing linebackers Leonard Floyd and Danny Trevathan, DL Cornelius Washington, RB Jeremy Langford and Long as probable.

It has taken a while but Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is finally feeling good about things as evidenced by his three touchdown passes that helped to knock off the Minnesota Vikings 13-21 last Sunday.
“When you string together a few losses in that fashion, people want answers,” Bears Guard Kyle Long said in a radio show. People want change. What we need to realize is the only change that needs to happen is we need to change our attitude, and we need to figure out how to quit making mistakes and start playing to a higher level.”
