There’s good news after the frightening incident involving former Georgia linebacker Leonard Floyd.
As announced by the Chicago Bears on Sunday night, Floyd has been released from a local hospital and will return with the team to Chicago later in the night after he sustained a neck injury during the Bears’ 22-16 loss against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium.
Earlier in the evening, it was announced that Floyd had “good movement” after he collided awkwardly with a teammate while trying to stop a running play.
Update: Leonard Floyd has been released from the local hospital and will return with the team to Chicago tonight.
