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.”
“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.
