    Chicago Bears first round draft pick Leonard Floyd was having an incredible game on Sunday against the New York Giants, but concerns about football are all secondary after he was carted off the field after a frightening collision with one of his own teammates.

    Floyd, who was the Bears' first round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, was trying to tackle a ball-carrier during the fourth quarter of Sunday's game in New York, but he ended up missing his target and collided with teammate Akiem Hicks.

    The collision saw Floyd's helmet drive straight into Hicks' hip, and the linebacker immediately dropped to the ground after the play. Trainers and doctors quickly descended upon him, and he was immobilized on a backboard and carted off the field after a few minutes of examination.

    Needless to say, Floyd was ruled out for the remainder of the game, and the Bears are left hoping that his injury isn't too serious. The team announced on Twitter that Floyd has a neck injury, but did not release any further information, saying, "We'll keep you updated as we know more."
