CHICAGO - Bears backup safety Brandon Hardin was taken from the field on a cart because of a neck injury early in the third quarter Saturday night in a preseason game against the Washington Redskins.
Chicago's Lorenzo Booker had just returned the opening kickoff of the second half 105 yards for a touchdown, when Hardin went down. He was injured trying to tackle Logan Paulsen on a 19-yard pass from Kirk Cousins on the next play from scrimmage.
Hardin stayed down for about 10 minutes as medical personnel tended to him before being placed on a stretcher and taken away on a cart. He was moving his hands and gave the thumbs up sign as he left the field.
