Kyle Long has given us Bears fans an update on his rehabilitation from ankle surgery. This is great news that he is progressing well. With training camp still roughly six weeks away, it appears that he getting on-track for the season.

An update on Long’s weight:

329 is in Long’s stated goal of 325-330 lbs for the upcoming season. This is especially news worthy since he was a paltry 265 lbs back in February.

Since the surgery in December, Long has been rehabbing and working his way into football shape. Taking a cue from this past summer’s Olympians, Long appears to be getting “cupped” here.

Editor: Would you like to know what’s going on in the pic above? Josh explains “cupping” in this article right here.

And a quick update on the mindset. As one would suspect with a person such as Long, he is in good spirits. I, for one, cannot wait to see this man crushing the spirits of opposing defensive lineman on Sunday’s!

Who else is excited to see good ‘ole number 75 on the mend and looking good?
