In the 2nd quarter of Thursday night's loss to the Dallas Cowboys, wide receiver Brandon Marshall left Soldier Field in an ambulance after taking a shot from Dallas safety Barry Church.

From Brad Biggs:

After making a 15-yard catch to convert a fourth-and-7, Marshall took a hard knee to the right side of his back from safety Barry Church, who charged in to make the tackle. Marshall was in obvious pain and remained face down on the grass for some time before being helped off the field. Quarterback Jay Cutler knew right away something was amiss.

"It looked like kind of an innocent hit," Cutler said. "I didn't see it that well. ‘B's' a big guy and he has taken a lot of crazy hits over the years. But he doesn't stay down. So whenever he stays down, you know something serious is going on.

We were all worried about him."

A few hours later, Ian Rapoport had this update:

As of 8:00am CT on Friday, the test results are still pending on Marshall. We will have a full update once it is available.
