The move means the NFC North-leading Bears will be without Long for at least eight weeks
Analysis: Long's injury is a definitely a blow, though it's hardly the first time the Bears have had to make do without him. The oft-injured lineman missed a total of 14 games over the previous two seasons due to an assortment of maladies. On a positive note, coach Matt Nagy said this injury isn't the same as Long's right ankle injury that limited him to eight games in 2016 and required surgery.
