Tracy Porter Head Injury Update: Bears CB exits game after collision with Harold Jones-Quartey

New, comments

The Chicago Bears cannot afford to lose Porter, as their secondary is already dangerously thin.

The Chicago Bears have some young potential in their defensive secondary, but very little that they could confidently throw out into action should any significant injuries occur.

On Saturday versus the Kansas City Chiefs, a key starter, cornerback Tracy Porter, went down with a head injury. He is being evaluated for a concussion.

[UPDATE] Tracy Porter has been ruled OUT for the remainder of the game.

Interestingly, though, the Bears initially tweeted that he was specifically out with a concussion, then deleted that tweet and replaced it with the non-specific one above. Not that there would be any questions why he has been ruled out, but I assume that's because of specific PR rules the team has. Or something.

To start the game, the Bears were already short at cornerback, with Kyle Fuller and Bryce Callahan sitting out with injuries. Now they are without their three best.

The Bears can't afford to lose Porter for any significant time, so hopefully this is not a concussion.

Stay tuned for updates.
