Chicago Bears right tackle Jordan Mills to have surgery

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Chicago Bears rookie right tackle Jordan Mills is set to have surgery on his foot today.

Yesterday at the Chicago Bears press conference, it was revealed that rookie offensive lineman Jordan Mills has a fifth metatarsal bone injury in his left foot. He hurt himself in the week 17 game against the Green Bay Packers after only three plays.

His injury occurred while he was coming off the field following the Bears first series.

Earlier today Matt Forte tweeted the following;

This will be an important off season for Jordan Mills, who will need to build off the positives he had, and work on the deficiency in his game. I though he had a much better rookie season than some of the metric sites gave him credit for, and according to my Sackwatch he only allowed 3.25 sacks on the season.

Yesterday at the presser Jay Cutler had this to say about Mills, "He had a heck of a year. As much attention as Kyle Long gets, Jordan Mills deserves as much if not more."

Mills has the hands, feet, and mentality to have a long career in the NFL.

Hopefully this surgical procedure isn't too much of a set back to his off season training.

EDIT: The Chicago Tribune is reporting that he will be ready to go in May.

Chicago Bears right tackle Jordan Mills is expected to be ready for practices in May after surgery Friday to repair a fractured fifth metatarsal in his left foot, two sources with knowledge of the situation said.

Renowned foot specialist Robert Anderson performed the surgery in Charlotte.
