Bears right guard Kyle Long has agreed to a restructured contract with Chicago that will ensure he's on the squad this upcoming season, reports The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs.

Long is set to return for a seventh season with the team that drafted him with the No. 20 overall pick in 2013.

Prior to restructuring, Long's deal with the Bears ran through 2021 with cap hits ranging between $8.5 million and $9.6 million. But injuries have limited him to 26 appearances the past three years. Long had signed a four-year, $40 million deal in September of 2016, which had an opt-out after the 2018 season.

Harden's 30-point streak ends as Rockets beat Hawks
During his streak - which puts him behind only Wilt Chamberlain's 65-game run in 1961-62 - Harden averaged 41.1 points per game. Young's hot shooting continued after that when he made his seventh 3 to cut the lead to one again.

A variety of ailments cost Long another six games in 2017 and put an end to his season in November. He missed eight contests before returning to start the Bears' regular-season finale in Minnesota and the wild-card playoff loss to the Eagles.

"Bear for Life", Long said on Twitter on Tuesday morning.
