Update: Herbert has returned to the game. Great news for the running back deficient Bears.
Update: Herbert is out of the medical tent and has gone to the locker room. He is questionable to return.

This is not good for the Bears, whose running back situation has now reached crisis levels with Damien Williams going down earlier in the contest.
The rookie Herbert has stepped in and carved out a role for himself within the Chicago offense over the past few weeks. He broke out with a 75-yard performance against the Raiders in Week 5 before breaking off 97 yards and a touchdown against the Packers a week later. He then notched 100 yards in last week’s blowout loss to the Buccaneers.
The Bears trail the 49ers by a touchdown at the start of the fourth, so we’ll see if the rookie can find his way back into the action.
