The Chicago Bears held their breath Thursday night as first-round pick Kyle Fuller left the game after suffering an injured ankle on the opening kick of their preseason game with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
However, it appears that Fuller may have dodged a serious injury.
The rookie cornerback told reporters after the game that X-Rays on his injured ankle came back negative for a fracture and he didn’t believe the injury was serious, per Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune.
The injury didn’t look particularly problematic at the time as Fuller continued to walk around the sidelines and didn’t seem too affected by the incident.
Ultimately, NFL teams just hope to get through the preseason healthy and early indications are that Fuller avoided any significant injuries Thursday night.
