I'll bet you get this question more than any other. The Bears offensive line has been so porous over the last few years. Is there any early indication of major improvement?
The Bears offensive line very much remains a work in progress with different players being evaluated at different positions in training camp and the preseason. The good news is that the talent level has been vastly improved over last season with the additions of veteran free agents
From your point of view who has been the biggest surprise in terms of impressing coaches with their play during training camp and first preseason game?
If I had to pick one player who has been a pleasant surprise it would be cornerback
Will we see Kyle Long get reps at right tackle before the season opener?
While several Bears players have practiced at multiple positions on the offensive line, first-round draft pick Kyle Long has lined up exclusively at right guard and likely will continue to do so. Here's how coach Marc Trestman recently answered the same question: "Right now we're staying the course and he's getting all the reps he can at the guard position and we're going to let that whole process evolve. Where he is right now, he's picking it up. He's not doing it in increments. He's picking it up in big steps each and every day."
