According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Shaheen’s injury wasn’t as bad as it first appeared, and he may still be able to play in Week 1 of the regular season despite suffering what the team believes is a low-ankle sprain.
More tests are being done on the ankle, and Shaheen’s condition will be updated later, the team says.
Shaheen suffered the injury while running after a catch during the first quarter of the game Saturday. He was tackled low, and was immediately helped off the field and sent to the locker room on a cart.
The Bears’ next game will be Saturday at Soldier Field as they host their preseason home opener against the Kansas City Chiefs.
