Bears News: Eddie Jackson carted to locker room after injury


by - Senior Editor -

This does not look good.

Chicago Bears veteran safety Eddie Jackson was injured during a 55-yard touchdown catch and run by receiver Garrett Wilson.

Jackson fell down on the wet field without any contact and had to be helped off the field. He grabbed the area around his Achilles tendon during the play.

Then the Bears' medical staff put him on a cart to take him to the locker room.

Bears officials announced that he has been ruled out with a foot injury. He had four interceptions in 12 games this season.

Elijah Hicks has replaced Jackson at safety.

Update: Jackson was seen with a boot on his foot in the locker room after the contest.
