Bears Guard Kyle Long Has Additional Surgery on Left Shoulder

After undeergoing surgery in December, Bears guard Kyle Long is set for an additional procedure on his left shoulder this offseason, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Long addressed the issue on the “Carmen and Jurko” show on ESPN 1000 in Chicago.

“There’s going to be some work done with that for sure,” Long said.

“I’ve got some minor standard-operating-procedure offseason stuff but nothing major.”

Long has had a rough ride the last two seasons. He tore the labrum in his shoulder during the 2016 preseason and was hindered by the injury throughout the regular season. Then, in November of that year, he severely tore up his right ankle in a loss in Tampa. That ultimately required surgery that put Long on the shelf deep into the following summer.

This past year, Long was significantly limited throughout training camp and missed the first two games of the regular season with the ankle issues. He missed a game and a half after mangling his finger in a loss to the Saints. He went on injured reserve in Week 14 when, as former coach John Fox said, his shoulder problem became “re-aggravated.”
