Long (ankle) is recovering well but remains uncertain to be ready for the start of training camp, Adam L. Jahns of The Chicago Sun-Times reports. "[Long] did some explosion work this past week," head coach John Fox said Friday. "He's right on target. We still have some time after this [minicamp] is over -- six to seven weeks. It'll be touch-and-go whether he's ready for the first day of training camp or maybe early on in camp. But he's doing well."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

There was no outlook written for Kyle Long.

2015

With two Pro Bowl berths in two NFL seasons -- including second-team All-Pro honors in 2014 -- Long has asserted himself as the alpha dog on the Bearsí offensive line and as a team cornerstone. The former first-round pick regularly overwhelms defensive tackles with his strength and athleticism, leading many to speculate that a move from right guard to one of the tackle spots may be in the cards. Barring a training-camp injury to projected starting tackles Jermon Bushrod and Jordan Mills, the Bears arenít likely to have Long change positions in 2015, so expect him to continue to overwhelm defensive linemen on the inside.

2014

Started all 16 games as a rookie at right guard, earning All-Rookie honors and a trip to the Pro Bowl. Penciled in to start at guard again in 2014, but could be viewed as an option at right tackle if Jordan Mills proves ineffective.

2013

The club's first-round draft pick out of Oregon, the athletic but lightly-experienced Long will be given every opportunity to win the starting right guard job.
