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.

He was the starting...
Jay Cutler realizes the product is not quite finished.
As potent as the Chicago Bears' offense looked in Saturday's 33-31 preseason win over Washington, he sees work to do.
He responded ''two preseason games'' when asked how far the offense has come.
The question is: How far can it go?
The Bears (tied for 11th in the AP Pro32) believe they now have the...
