LAKE FOREST, Ill. (CBS) — Bears linebacker Leonard Floyd returned with his team Sunday night after a scary scene unfolded at MetLife Stadium.

Floyd is doing well after suffering a neck injury in the fourth quarter of a 22-16 loss to the Giants. Bears coach John Fox confirmed that the neck injury was nothing serious, though Floyd is in the concussion protocol.

“Much better,” Fox said of Floyd’s neck. “I mean, obviously it was a scary situation. I think anytime you see any kind of a head or neck injury, it’s concerning. He was able to make it back on the team charter. It was a lot of hard work by a lot of people to make that happen. Right now, I think the real serious injuries are not there. I think he’s got some neck soreness. He’s in the concussion protocol. The real serious stuff is behind him.”

Floyd flew with the crown of his head into teammate Akiem Hicks and remained down on the ground for eight minutes. A medical team of 20 surrounded Floyd as he remained motionless on the field. After evaluations at the hospital, Floyd’s neck condition was deemed OK to release him.

Teammates were emotional as they watched Floyd motionless on the ground. Upon lifting his backboard to a cart, the entire Bears team emerged to the field and wished him well.

“It was pretty scary, man, but he’s a fighter,” Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan said  Sunday.

With the serious nature to Floyd’s injury now confirmed to be gone, his football health remains in a day-to-day pattern with the concussion.

Fox couldn’t say when Floyd would be able to rejoin the Bears on the field, looking first toward this Sunday’s Week 12 contest with the Titans at Solider Field.

“It’s a little bit too early to say,” Fox said. “We were just very, very happy and relieved it wasn’t anything career-threatening or very serious. We’re happy about that.”
