Kyle Fuller missed the majority of the Chicago Bears' win Thursday night over the Jacksonville Jaguars after suffering an ankle injury, but the club couldn’t provide an update on the first-round cornerback.

“I think we’ll see where he is as we get into Sunday and Monday,” said Bears coach Marc Trestman, speaking of both Fuller and recently waived/injured tight end Zach Miller.

Fuller hurt the ankle during the game’s opening kickoff, but was later seen walking along the sideline under his own power. Fuller didn’t appear to be in any pain, and after the game he walked through the locker room without crutches or any type of walking boot.

The injury isn’t believed to be serious, and Fuller told reporters after the game that X-rays on the ankle came back negative.

There’s a chance the Bears could be taking a cautious approach with Fuller, who played extensively last week during the team’s preseason opening win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

The No. 14 overall pick of the NFL draft out of Virginia Tech, Fuller had been playing with the starters at cornerback opposite Charles Tillman.
