NEW YORK – Bears fans can breathe a collective sigh of relief now that Leonard Floyd has been released from the hospital.

Floyd hurt his neck making a tackle in the fourth quarter of the Bears’ 22-16 loss to the Giants.

It was a bit of a case of friendly fire for Floyd. His helmet went directly into the side of his 336-pound teammate, Akiem Hicks.

Floyd had to be immobilized before being taken off the field.

He was immediately transported to the hospital for further testing, but has since been discharged to travel with the team back to Chicago.

Floyd has lived up to his first-round billing so far this season, recording 23 tackles, 5 sacks and one defensive touchdown.
