Bears QB Connor Shaw Suffers Broken Leg, Could Still Be Back This Season


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Bears QB Connor Shaw suffered a broken leg right above the ankle during today’s game.

  • According to Rapoport, as long as there’s no ligament damage, it’s possible Shaw could be back this season.
  • Bears HC John Fox told reporters that Shaw was transported to the hospital and will undergo surgery immediately to repair his leg and determine the severity of the injury.


Bears QB Connor Shaw went down during Saturday’s preseason game with what looked like a gruesome injury to his leg. Shaw was carted off the field to the locker room.

Shaw was given immediate help from the medical staff and an air cast was placed on his leg while players were kneeling around him.

Shaw, 24, wound up signing on with the Browns as an undrafted out of South Carolina last year. He is in the final year of his three-year, $1.53 million rookie contract, which includes a base salary of $525,000 for the 2016 season.

Unfortunately, Shaw’s 2015 season came to an end with him being placed on season-ending injured reserve after he broke the thumb on his throwing hand during the preseason.

The Browns waived Shaw a few months ago before he was claimed by the Bears.

In 2014, Shaw wound up appearing in one game and completing 14 of 28 attempts for 177 yards, no touchdowns and an interception.

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