TAMPA, Fla. — Bears right guard Kyle Long was carted off with an apparent right ankle injury in the second quarter against the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Long was injured on a shovel pass in the red zone to fullback Paul Lasike, who bobbled the ball and fell forward into the offensive line.

The replays were ugly. They showed that Long’s right ankle was bent violently. He left the game on a cart. His lower right leg also was placed in an air cast. Long was immediately ruled out for the rest of the game.


Long, who is arguably the Bears’ best player, has dealt with shoulder and triceps injuries this season. Before the regular season opened, the Bears signed Long to a four-year, $40 million contract extension, including $18 million guaranteed.

To make matters worse against the Bucs, right tackle Bobby Massie left the game in the second quarter with a concussion.

Veterans Ted Larsen and Mike Adams took over for Long and Massie, respectively.
