Bears rookie safety Brandon Hardin was taken off the field on a stretcher Saturday night with what appeared to be a neck injury.
Hardin went to the ground after hitting Redskins tight end Logan Paulsen with his helmet. He gave a thumbs up on his way off the field, giving hope that the injury wasn’t too serious. Hardin provided more on that front Sunday morning when he sent out a tweet telling his followers that he’s going to be okay after the scary moment on Saturday night.
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! Lol—

We’re not sure what that means for Hardin’s immediate future, but it’s certainly better than some of the worst case scenarios that run through your head in those situations. We’ll look for a more detailed update on Hardin’s condition when Lovie Smith next meets with the media.
