Kyle Long stays at right tackle on Day 1 of Bears' minicamp

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- The Chicago Bears' experiment with Kyle Long at right tackle did not end at organized team activities.

With regular starters Jordan Mills and Jermon Bushrod unavailable on Tuesday, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler operated behind a new-look offensive line that once again featured Long at right tackle next to right guard Vladimir Ducasse.

"It's a very versatile [offensive line]," Cutler said. "You've got Vlad [Ducasse] in there now, Matt Slauson, Charles Leno's playing left, Kyle's playing right tackle, there's a lot of moving parts, and we've got some guys in the second group that can play as well. It's going to be just a matter of sorting through all those guys, finding our good seven or eight guys that we all feel comfortable with. But right now you've got to be happy with the way that group is competing out there. With some of the injuries we've had, pulling guys out and moving guys to different spots, they've been really resilient, and they've done a good job."

The wide receivers were also at less than full strength on Day 1 of minicamp, as rookie Kevin White failed to participate in the workout for undisclosed reasons.

Bears head coach John Fox said White's status for the final two days of minicamp is unknown.

"Everybody's day to day with me," Fox said. "I'll meet with the medical people and we'll make that call and he'll be out here when he's ready to be."
