CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

One preseason start and 33 snaps and Bears nation already has a massive fan crush on first round draft pick Kyle Long.

Long and fellow rookie Jordan Mills manned the right side of the offensive line and opened the door for the Bears to get the running game going, which was a goal. That and giving the rookie lineman valuable reps after the Bears pre-season win over the Chargers long assessed his first professional start.
