Bears QB Foles day-to-day with hip/glute injury

Chicago Bears quarterback Nick Foles’ hip/glute injury isn’t as bad as initially feared and is considered day-to-day, coach Matt Nagy told reporters Tuesday.

Foles was injured in the final minute of Monday night’s 19-13 home loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

With the Bears at their own 20-yard line to start a last-minute drive, Foles took a hard hit from Vikings defensive end Ifeadi Odenigbo after releasing a pass that fell incomplete. He remained down on the field for several minutes before he was helped onto a cart and taken off the field.

Foles, 31, is a nine-year veteran who began the season as a backup until Mitchell Trubisky lost the job in Week 3. Foles managed only 106 yards on 15-of-26 passing Monday. He was intercepted once.

With Trubisky unavailable because of a shoulder injury, Tyler Bray came on to finish the game Bray threw an 18-yard completion to Ryan Nall to get to the Chicago 38, but after spiking the ball to stop the clock, Bray threw three consecutive incompletions. The Vikings took over on downs and ran out the clock.

Foles, the Super Bowl LII MVP with the Philadelphia Eagles, has completed 65 percent of his passes this season for 1,852 yards and 10 touchdowns with eight interceptions.

The Bears (5-5), who have lost four in a row, have a bye this weekend. They face the division-leading Packers (7-2) in Green Bay on Nov. 29.

Nagy said he believes Foles has a contusion and a strain and that he is unlikely to go on injured reserve.

Nagy also said another quarterback change is a possibility. “When you lose four in a row, everything’s on the table,” Nagy said.

In other injury news, Bears defensive lineman Akiem Hicks left the game with a strained right hamstring and return specialist Dwayne Harris is awaiting confirmation on a torn triceps.
