After Bears rookie linebacker Leonard Floyd was carted off the field at practice on Thursday, a league source told PFT that Floyd was “woozy” early in practice and his departure was related to that rather than a torn ACL or other injury that would have him joining wide receiver Kevin White as Bears first-rounders who missed their rookie seasons.

The word from the Bears is along the same lines. Coach John Fox said after practice concluded that Floyd has been sick for the last couple of days and that he wasn’t able to do as much as anticipated during the team’s practice session.

“He was sick,” Fox said, via Peggy Kusinski of NBC Chicago. “He tried to go. He’s a tough kid, just didn’t make it through.”

Fox said that the team thinks Floyd will be fine, which should lead to a lot of exhaling in the Chicagoland area.
