Chicago Bears Injury Update: Kyle Fuller breaks his hand and suffers hip pointer

Not only were the Chicago Bears dominated today by the Miami Dolphins, they saw their top rookie, Kyle Fuller, leave the game with an injury.

Well this is some troubling news...

Even though it would prove difficult to play cornerback with one hand, I think the hip pointer is the more concerning injury. Depending on the severity of the injury, a hip pointer can keep a player out for a few days to several weeks. It's basically a contusion, but it's one of those injuries that needs to be 100% before returning to action.

The severity of the broken had will need to be determined as well. Fuller's teammate, Shea McClellin, missed weeks 3 through 6 with a broken hand. If his hand can be protected, I think he returns to action once the hip is healed.

When Fuller exited the game today, it was Sherrick McManis that filled in at corner. McManis just returned from a quad/knee injury.

It's interesting to note, the Chicago Bears have not made an official announcement about Kyle Fuller yet.

Keep it locked on Windy City Gridiron for all your breaking Bears news...
