Long (ankle) returned to practice and is expected to suit up against the Seahawks on Monday, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
ANALYSIS
Long was able to suit up for Chicago's season opener despite undergoing three separate offseason operations on his neck, shoulder and elbow. The 29-year-old seems likely to play again in Week 2, and should slot in as the Bears' starting right guard.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2015
2014
2013
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 Bears’ 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 aren’t likely to have Long change positions in 2015, so expect him to continue to overwhelm defensive linemen on the inside.
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.
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.

Long underwent surgeries on his neck, shoulder and elbow this offseason but is feeling great, Dan Wiederer of The Chicago Tribune reports. "If it were up to me, I'd be full go right now," Long said of the injuries Tuesday. "I feel as if I am. But there are certain things that are time-sensitive that we have to follow a certain timeline with -- the neck being one of them. It's not something you want to take lightly. We're going to take all the time we need, but there will be no limitations once the season rolls around."
