Bears place Long in IR with right foot injury
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears placed right guard Kyle Long on injured reserve Saturday because of a tendon injury in his right foot.
The move means the NFC North-leading Bears (4-3) will be without Long for at least eight weeks.

Special teams issues doom Bears against Patriots
CHICAGO (AP) — Nick Kwiatkoski and DeAndre Houston-Carson combined for a big play for the Chicago Bears on a kickoff in the first quarter against the New England Patriots on Sunday.
Chicago's (not very) special teams got progressively worse from there.
The Bears managed very little resistance on Cordarrelle Patterson's 95-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, and Kyle Van Noy scored off a blocked punt in the second half of the Patriots' 38-31 victory.
Bears place TE Miller on IR because of left knee injury
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears have placed tight end Zach Miller — recovering from surgery to save his left leg — on injured reserve.
Miller had surgery in New Orleans to repair a torn artery he suffered while dislocating his knee during a loss to the Saints on Oct. 29. He was injured when he landed in the end zone trying to make a touchdown catch.
Bears waive running back Jeremy Langford
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears have waived running back Jeremy Langford.
A fourth-round draft pick in 2015, Langford ran for 537 yards as a rookie.
He came into last season as the starter, but ankle injuries early on and in training camp this year along with the emergence of Jordan Howard helped make him expendable. Howard ran for 1,313 yards as a rookie in 2016.
Penn State has long been known as Linebacker U., and Boston College has long garnered praise as ‘O-Line’ U.
Well, make way for Harvard and its growing personna as ‘H-Back U’.
