Kyle Fuller out with ankle injury

August, 14, 2014
CHICAGO -- Chicago Bears first-round pick Kyle Fuller is out of Thursday's matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars after suffering an ankle injury during the game's opening kickoff.

The severity of Fuller's injury wasn't immediately known. 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.

Fuller walked along the sideline under his own power, and didn't appear to be in any pain.

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. Tim Jennings filled in for Fuller after the injury.

The team also announced tight end Zach Miller will also miss the rest of the game. Miller suffered a foot injury during the second quarter.
