Long, Mills to start again in Oakland

Posted by Larry Mayer on August 19, 2013 – 6:06 pm

The right side of the Bears’ offensive line will remain intact for at least another week as rookies Kyle Long and Jordan Mills will start Friday night’s preseason game in Oakland.

With Long at right guard and Mills at right tackle, the Bears scored on four of their first six possessions in the first half of last Thursday night’s 33-28 preseason win over the Chargers.

“The right side of the line, we’ll keep it the same this week,” coach Marc Trestman said Monday. “There were enough good things that happened that we feel like we want to give them another opportunity to go out and play a little bit more against the first group and see what they can do.”

It’s premature to anoint Long and Mills opening day starters. But against the Chargers, both showed Trestman “just what we had seen in tape in college; they were athletic, they were physical.”

“Just overall there was an upside in assignments, physicality and athleticism,” Trestman said. “We’re not ready to pass judgment yet overall. We’re just going to let this thing play itself out. But to be as straightforward as I can, it was a positive experience for our football team to have them out there.

“They kept their poise. They did a lot of good things. They made mistakes as well that we think they can improve on and we’ll see how it goes another week.”
