Chicago Bears outside linebacker Leonard Floyd picked up a very scary injury when his team played against the New York Giants in week 11.

Prior to Sunday's game, the rookie was having a great first year having played in seven of the team's nine games this season, achieving 23 tackles, five sacks, and a forced fumble as well.

However, the rest of his season could be in jeopardy after what happened late in the game against the Giants.

During a play in the fourth quarter, Floyd went to tackle New York's running back Rashard Jennings when he collided with his own defensive lineman Akiem Hicks.

The rookie went down immediately to which point everyone on the field took a knee and prayed for him.

Floyd had to be placed on a backboard and tied down before being taken off the field via a cart. Several players from both teams gave their support for the rookie before he was driven off to the locker room.

It was later announced that he had picked up a neck injury and that he would be taken to a local hospital by ambulance. The Bears later made an announcement on their Twitter account.

They tweeted: "Fox says Leonard Floyd has been taken to a local hospital to undergo testing but that his movement looked good and is encouraging."

It's good to hear that Floyd is showing some positive signs, but we might be waiting a while before we see him on the football field once more. Hopefully, he is able to return soon from what was a very nasty injury.
