Bears RB Jeremy Langford was taken to the locker room during the third quarter of Sunday night’s game with an ankle injury.

NBC’s Michele Tafoya mentioned that the Bears’ training staff appeared to be focused on Langford’s right Achille, so we’ll have to wait for a more definitive update regarding his injury.

Langford, 24, was taken with the No. 106 overall pick in the fourth round of this year’s NFL draft by the Bears. He’s currently in the first year of his four-year, $3.139 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $525,000 for the 2016 season.

Entering tonight’s game, Landford had rushed for 85 yards on 28 carries (3 YPC) to go along with three receptions for 12 yards receiving and two total touchdowns.

We’ll have more regarding Langford’s injury as the news is available.
