Bears Q&A: Why Move On From Josh Sitton? What's The Future For Kyle Fuller?

The Tribune’s Brad Biggs answers your questions in his weekly mailbag.

If Adam Shaheen is activated from injured reserve, does that mean Kyle Long cannot be, or have they increased the number of players who can be activated from IR each season? — @felicellijoe

The NFL changed its rules regarding injured reserve in 2017, allowing teams to designate two players to return. I expect Shaheen to return to practice this week, likely Wednesday, and that would leave room for one more player to return from IR. Long is the only likely candidate given we’re in Week 10. Long would not be eligible to play until the Week 17 regular-season finale in Minnesota. Despite a series of recent injuries, the Bears have been much healthier overall this season than in recent years.
