The Chicago Bears have been hit with more bad news. First, they received word that wide receiver Alshon Jeffrey would be suspended for the next four games.

Now, they’re dealing with the news that Kyle Long, their starting right guard, is done for the season. He’s out with an ankle injury that he suffered in Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Head coach John Fox feared this news on Sunday when he wouldn’t get into how long his starting lineman will be out. The X-rays came back negative, according to the team.

With the team 2-7, there’s no incentive to bring him back.

“It’s tough,” Jay Cutler, Bears quarterback, said. “He’s had a bunch of injuries to one (half) of his body. And now the lower half takes a hit too. … If there’s a chance for him to come back, he’s a guy who will make it happen. If not, he’ll be a hard guy to replace.”

Long suffered the injury in the second quarter, as Cutler threw a shovel pass to Paul Lasike. When Lasike stumbled on the play, he fell on the back of Long’s foot.

He was clearly in pain, as he went off the field on the cart. Long pounded the side of the vehicle, but was shouting encouragement, according to the Chicago Tribune.
