Bears' Long lands on IR for fourth season in row

Bears release QB Tyler Bray and re-sign TE Bradley Sowell. Probably a good indication Mitchell Trubisky is back after the bye and Bray is brought back on the practice squad.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears film — In the Week 5 loss to Oakland, the Chicago offensive line struggled to create a surge up front and communication breakdowns led to linebackers running free to the ball carrier at times. Very poor performance versus a Raiders defensive front seven that played with more energy and speed. Chicago averaged just 2.5 yards per carry on Sunday. And through five weeks, the club is averaging only 3.40 yards per carry (No.29 in the NFL).
