Report: Bears’ Hardin Released From Hospital

CHICAGO (CBS) — A day after suffering a neck injury in the Bears’ preseason game against the Redskins, rookie safety Brandon Hardin reportedly has been released from the hospital.

The Chicago Tribune reports all major tests performed on Hardin came back clear after he was carted off the field during the third quarter Saturday night at Soldier Field. He does not have any paralysis issues, nor did he lose consciousness after injuring himself tackling Redskins tight end Logan Paulsen.

However, it’s too soon to know when Hardin will be back in action. A source told the Tribune that Hardin will undergo further tests in two weeks to determine when he can be back on the field.

“Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers. I can’t give an exact update, but the good news is that I’m gonna be ok. And we won!,” Hardin posted on his Twitter account on Sunday.
