About this Article

Safety Brandon Hardin stripped the football from running back Armando Allen in Thursday morning's practice, scooped it up and sprinted 90 yards to the opposite end zone. And he was almost caught from behind -- by 313-pound guard Kyle Long. The speed is just one of the rare combination of physical attributes that led the Bears to use the 20th overall pick on Long in April. Bob LeGere says the son of Hall of Fame defensive end Howie Long still has a lot to learn about offensive line play in the NFL, but he's already shown he's a quick study.
