Chicago Bears quarterback Nick Foles was carted off the field after being slammed to the turf late in the fourth quarter of last night’s 19-13 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
With 44 seconds left in the game, Foles — who led the Eagles to the Super Bowl 52 title — dropped back to pass and attempted to avoid the Vikings’ rush, but Minnesota defensive end Ifeadi Odenigbo caught hold of the veteran quarterback and drove Foles backward into the ground.
Bears coach Matt Nagy, in his postgame availability, said Foles suffered a hip or leg injury.
Foles stayed down on the field for over a minute until the cart came out and transported him to the locker room.
“He’s a tough dude, and he was in a lot of pain,” Nagy said. “When you see that and you’re down there with him, you feel for him just because you don’t know how bad it was. So that part is hard.”
