Latavius Murray is off to the injury tent for the New Orleans Saints in their wild card game against the Chicago Bears.

Since he’s been taken to the locker room, we’ll update you on his status as soon as we know more.

For the game Murray had just four catches for nine yards, and two receptions for 11 yards total with a touchdown on a broken play with just over four minutes left in the third quarter. The former Central Florida Golden Knight has 656 yards rushing this season with four touchdowns, mostly from backing up Saints star Alvin Kamara.

The Saints took a lead 21-3 with 8:50 remaining in the fourth quarter after a Kamara TD from three yards out. Since they’ve managed to take a three-score lead, that might be the end of Murray’s game today as there’s no need to put a player that’s potentially injured back on the field in a blowout.
