Early in the first quarter, Chicago Bears’ tight end Adam Shaheen caught a pass from Mitchell Trubisky for a five yard gain, but he seemed to have injured his ankle on the tackle. He scooted along the turf for a moment before limping to his sideline. A few moments later Chicago’s medical personal brought the cart over to take him to the locker room.
His return to the game has officially been ruled doubtful by the Bears
It appeared as though his toe got caught in the ground and his ankle twisted, but as soon as we have more concrete info we’ll pass it along.
EDIT: This quick clip from Twitter doesn’t look good, but there has been no announcement from the team.

With Shaheen out the Bears may play reserves Ben Braunecker and Daniel Brown a bit earlier than expected.
And as a FYI, give Marcus a follow on Twitter. His GIF game is strong.
EDIT: While not an official diagnosis, Dr. Chao has a lot of good info.

Hoping for significant right lateral low ankle sprain.
These basketball type sprains sometimes worse than it looks.
Of course will need stadium X-ray to rule out fracture. https://t.co/I7crOLpm7c
