Nothing funny about this one. Kyle Orton went down late in the first half with what looked to be an ankle injury. This is a huge blow to the Bears offense, which had only managed to put up only 13 points in the first half.
No word yet on the nature or severity of the injury, but friend of the blog Mike Hall reports from the sideline that Orton's out for the game.
Rex Grossman took over in the second half as the Bears' quarterback and managed to hit Rashied Davis for a touchdown with 7:00 left in the third quarter.
Before leaving the game, Orton was 10-18 passing for 110 yards.
Brad Biggs, covering the game for the Sun-Times, has an explanation of the play where Orton got hurt.
What do you think: If Orton's injury (higher power forbid) is serious, what effect does this have on the remainder of the Bears season? What do you think of Grossman's job filling in as backup?
