The Chicago Bears have kicked Kyle Long from Monday's practice, according to a report from Chicago Sun TimesPatrick Finley.

Finley mentions that "Long was involved in two separate scuffles with teammates and sent to the locker room early on the final day of training camp."

Head coach John Fox said in a press conference was adamant: this should not happen under his watch:

"There’s a certain standard we have.” Fox said. “That’s not how we operate."

Long was selected with the Bears' 20th overall, in the first round of the 2013 NFL draft. He played 15 games or more in his first three seasons in the league, but was limited to eight last year because of numerous injuries.
