Week 2 game grade suggests Kyle Long is catching on at tackle

Chicago Bears offensive lineman Kyle Long was moved from right guard to right tackle just before the 2015 season opener, so the team expected some growing pains. 

Long may be adapting to his new position faster than expected, though. According to game grades from Pro Football Focus, Long was the second-best performing tackle in the NFL last week (+3.5).

Long admitted to making some mistakes in Chicago’s first loss of the season, a 31-23 defeat at the hands of the Green Bay Packers. He must have corrected many of them before the Bears hosted the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2.

The Bears have plenty of problems, but Long’s play is not one of them. The Pro Bowl blocker has little to do with the team’s 0-2 start this season.
