Bears QB Brian Hoyer Undergoes Surgery For Broken Forearm, Out 6-8 Weeks

Update:

According to Adam Caplan of ESPN, Bears QB Brian Hoyer is now expected to miss six to eight weeks following surgery to repair his broken left forearm.

——–

Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that Bears QB Brian Hoyer is scheduled to undergo surgery for his broken left forearm on Sunday and could be placed on injured reserve in the coming days.

This would cost Hoyer the next weeks of the season, but a return towards the end of the year would be a possibility.

Hoyer was taken to the locker room with what appeared to be a left arm injury during the second quarter of Thursday night’s game against the Bears. He was attempting to make a throw when he was hit by Packers OLBs Julius Peppers and Clay Matthews when he landed on his left arm.

Matt Barkley replaced Hoyer as the team’s starting quarterback for the remainder of the game.

Hoyer, 30, signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the Bears back in April after he was released by the Texans. He’ll be an unrestricted free agent next year.

In 2016, Hoyer has appeared in six games and completed 67 percent of his passes for 1,445 yards, six touchdowns and no interceptions.

We’ll have more regarding Hoyer as the news is available.
