Bears Cornerback Leaves With Ankle Injury

The Chicago Bears find themselves in a shootout with an explosive Miami Dolphins team, and they could be short one of their starting cornerbacks for the remainder of the game. Defensive back Kindle Vildor exited in the first half and the team has declared him questionable to return.
Vildor was shaken up following a defensive pass interference drawn by Dolphins' wide receiver Tyreek Hill and had to be helped off the field. Vildor had yet to notch a tackle or a pass breakup to that point in the game.

The Bears have allowed 202 passing yards and a perfect 158.3 passer rating to Dolphins' quarterback Tua Tagovailoa early in the third quarter. A continued absence by Vildor will make it difficult for the Bears to stop the bleeding.

Vildor joined the Bears as their 163rd overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. He emerged as a key contributor for his team in his second year, starting 12 of his 17 appearances and logging 44 total tackles.
