Earlier today Chicago Bears head coach John Fox said that starting right guard Kyle Long would go under the knife on Monday to repair his ailing right ankle. His left labrum injury that he has been dealing with all season long will also require surgery. He’ll have that procedure at a later date.

In other Bears injury news...

Outside linebacker Leonard Floyd left the hospital last night and returned home with the team. Fox said that Floyd is feeling "much better" and that he is only suffering from some neck soreness, although he has been placed in concussion protocol.

Multiple sources are now reporting what most Bears’ fans feared in regards to tight end Zach Miller. His foot injury will require surgery and he is lost for the season.

There were no updates on left guard Josh Sitton (ankle), cornerback Cre'Von LeBlanc (concussion) or linebacker Christian Jones (back) who all left yesterday’s game.

There were also no updates on the Bears that missed Sunday’s game in New York either. Once we hear something concrete on Eddie Goldman (ankle), Bobby Massie (concussion), Mitch Unrein (back) or Deiondre' Hall (ankle) we’ll pass it along.

And in other Bears injury news...

The Chicago Tribune’s Brad Biggs is reporting that second year wide out Kevin White will not return form injured reserve this season. His season ends with 19 receptions for 187 yards in 4 games and he added 1 rush for 9 yards.

Cornerback Kyle Fuller is eligible to come off of injured reserve this week and Fox said, "we'll have to evaluate that come Wednesday." If the Bears make a decision on Fuller, we’ll pass that info along at that time.
