Brandon Hardin Injury: Chicago Bears Place Rookie Safety On Injured Reserve

Chicago Bears safety Brandon Hardin was placed on Injured Reserve following a neck injury last week suffered in a preseason game against the Washington Redskins, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune:

Hardin was removed from the field on a cart and taken to a hospital where he remained overnight. He was back at Halas Hall earlier this week but was wearing a neck brace. The plan is for Hardin to make a complete recovery but he will not play in his rookie season.

Biggs noted that Hardin being placed on IR likely opens up a spot for a safety fighting for a roster spot. The Bears have also reportedly inquired about former Green Bay Packers safety Charlie Peprah, who was cut by Green Bay earlier this month.



Hardin is a rookie third-round draft pick out of Oregon State.
