Bears veteran safety Antrel Rolle left Sunday’s 22-20 victory over the Oakland Raiders in the third quarter and did not return. He was carted off the field and was later seen in the locker room with a walking boot.
Rolle said after the game, “Thank God nothing is broken,” after X-rays came back negative. He was able to watch the rest of the game from the sideline to cheer on his teammates.
Rolle’s value to the team is immeasurable. His contributions go far beyond how he plays on the field, as he is one of the veteran leaders of the team.
It’s unknown how long he will be out, but he is hoping to be back as soon as possible.
“I’m going to keep grinding and just keep on pushing. I plan on being back in no time.”
