Kreutz: Bone spur removed

By Kevin Seifert

ESPN Chicago’s Jeff Dickerson has more information on the Olin Kreutz story we referenced earlier Thursday. According to agent Mark Bartelstein, Kreutz had a bone spur removed on Tuesday to relieve discomfort in one of his Achilles tendons.

Bartelstein made clear there was no damage to the tendon itself. The important fact is that there will have to be serious and unexpected complications for Kreutz not to be fully ready for training camp in July.

Meanwhile, the Bears were scheduled to interview Minnesota quarterbacks coach Kevin Rogers for their offensive coordinator position Thursday. I’ll let you know if we get confirmation of his visit.

Update: The team announced Rogers is in fact at Halas Hall.
