BOURBONNAIS — The Bears kicked Kyle Long out of practice Monday in Bourbonnais, coach John Fox said.
Long was involved in two separate scuffles with teammates and sent to the locker room early on the final day of training camp.
“There’s a standard we have and it’s something we weren’t very pleased with,” Fox said after practice. “I haven’t had a chance to visit with him yet, but it’s something that we’ll handle it internally.”
Fox said “obviously there was some frustration” on Long’s part, but “that’s not how we operate.”
The Bears leave Bourbonnais after a relatively quiet camp; short of pushing and shoving during the first padded practice, the team did not fight during practices at Olivet Nazarene University.
