LB Lance Briggs hurts ankle in preseason game vs Arizona

Bad news on the injury front for the Bears on Saturday, as during their game with Arizona, LB Lance Briggs suffered what looked to be a right-ankle injury and had to leave the game. Here’s the report on the injury from ESPN.

Bears linebacker Lance Briggs appeared to suffer a right-ankle injury in the second quarter of Sunday’s preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals.

The severity of the injury isn’t yet known, but the Bears said his return is questionable. The club brought in Brian Iwuh to replace Briggs during a Cardinals drive that ended in a 27-yard touchdown pass from Derek Anderson to Stephen Williams.

Briggs sat on a training table on the sideline with his right shoe off as athletic trainers worked on the injured ankle.

Briggs is the second starting linebacker for the Bears to suffer a leg injury in the preseason. Starting middle linebacker Brian Urlacher left last week’s game against the Oakland Raiders with a strained calf.
