Kyle Long, 5 Other Bears Sit Out Practice

(670 The Score) A day after returning to practice in full, Bears guard Kyle Long (hip) was held out entirely Thursday.

Long was listed among six players who didn't participate as the Bears released their injury report ahead of their contest against the Vikings on Sunday. He has been dealing with a nagging hip issue for the last week.

Bears defensive lineman Akiem Hicks (knee), receiver Taylor Gabriel (concussion), kicker Eddy Pineiro (knee), defensive lineman Bilal Nichols (hand fracture) and running back Mike Davis (personal) also missed practice. Safety Eddie Jackson (shoulder) was listed as being a limited participant.

Receiver Cordarrelle Patterson (tricep) and defensive lineman Roy Robertson-Harris (glute) practiced in full Thursday after being limited Wednesday. Tackle Bobby Massie (illness) and tight end Trey Burton (groin) each practiced in full for a second straight day.

The Vikings returned linebacker Anthony Barr (groin) and Mackensie Alexander (elbow) as full participants in practice Thursday. Final injury reports for both teams will be revealed Friday afternoon.

Kickoff between the Bears (2-1) and Vikings (2-1) is set for 3:25 p.m. CT Sunday from Soldier Field.
