Chicago Bears safety Brandon Hardin tweeted that he's 'gonna be OK' after a neck injury sustained in Saturday's 33-31 win over the Washington Redskins required him to be carted off the field. Here's Hardin's tweet:
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— Brandon Hardin (@_B_Hard_) August 19, 2012
Hardin was injured while attempting to tackle Washington tight end Logan Paulsen. Hardin collided helmet-first with Paulsen's hip and was knocked backwards. The play happened in the third quarter of the game with the Bears leading 27-10 at the time.
The Bears selected Hardin in the third round of this year's NFL Draft out of Oregon State.
