(670 The Score) Bears guard Kyle Long was held out of practice for a second straight day due to ankle soreness.

Coach Matt Nagy indicated to reporters at Halas Hall on Friday that Long should be able to play Monday night's game with the Seahawks. The maintenance for Long is the continuation of a trend from training camp, with the Bears taking precautions for his health.

Long suffered a gruesome ankle injury in November of 2016, which he had repaired by surgery. He underwent three different procedures this offseason, returning to the Bears in good health.

A three-time Pro Bowl player, Long returned to action with the Bears in their season opener last Sunday and played every snap on offense at right guard.

Safety DeAndre Houston-Carson (forearm/back) also did not practice, while cornerback Bryce Callahan (knee) was limited in work.

The Bears host the Seahawks on Monday night at Soldier Field, with kickoff set for 7:15 p.m. CT.
