Major Wright injury update: Chicago Bears defensive back exits game in 2nd quarter

Rob Grabowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears saw an injury in their defensive secondary Sunday afternoon versus the Vikings.

Chicago Bears safety Major Wright was injured in the 2nd quarter while making a tackle on Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright.

The Bears defensive back appeared to have jarred his head, and looked woozy while walking off the field with trainers.  Wright will undoubtedly have to run through the NFL's concussion tests on the sidelines before a decision is made whether to let him return.

Veteran backup and special teams ace Craig Steltz will fill in for Major in the meantime.

UPDATE: Major Wright was cleared to return after being evaluated for a concussion.  He ran through the tests as required, and returned to the game late in the 2nd quarter.

Currently in the 2nd quarter, the Bears are leading the Vikings 14-7.  The defense has done a great job of stifling Adrian Peterson and Christian Ponder, while the offense has looked great, led by Jay Cutler, Martellus Bennett, Matt Forte, and Brandon Marshall.
