Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton left Sunday's game against the Bengals with a non-contact injury.
Dalton came up limp after a 14-yard scamper and went immediately in the injury tent. Rookie quarterback Justin Fields replaced him in the lineup.
According to Bears officials, Dalton tweaked his right leg.
He is currently running on the sidelines and it appears that he escaped serious injury.
Update: Dalton is back on the field to start the next drive.
Update: Fields is in to run a two-minute offense. Dalton, Nagy, and the team trainer were seen huddling up and checking him out.
Update: Bears just downgraded Andy Dalton's injury status to doubtful (knee).
