Kyle Long injury update: Bears lineman on sideline during 2nd quarter versus Packers

NFL: Preseason-Denver Broncos at Chicago Bears Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

The Bears suffered yet another injury on Thursday night. After losing Brian Hoyer early in the second quarter, Pro Bowl Right Guard Kyle Long left the game with an unspecified injury later in the second of the Bears-Packers game.

Widely considered one of the few bright spots of the Bears, and one of the clear faces of the franchise, Long was seen sitting on the sidelines without his helmet. Long isn’t in the locker room, but the Bears obviously cannot like how their injury list is looking. With the sort of bad news that seems to be following the Bears at this point, anyone’s guess could be valid about why Long is on the sidelines.

Long was playing with a torn labrum, so it is possible that he tweaked that injury.

We will update as more information becomes available, but the Bears are not famed for being generous with injury information.
