SHARE Safety Al Afalava to have MRI in injured shoulder Monday

Rookie strong safety Al Afalava will undergo an MRI on his right shoulder to determine the nature of his injury on Monday morning.

Afalava left the game in the first half when he missed an arm tackle on a running play.

“He ran through my arm and the shoulder went numb,” Afalava said.

He originally injured his right shoulder in preseason, and has occasionally appeared on the injury report this season. The Bears replaced Afalava with veteran Kevin Payne.

The status of cornerback Charles Tillman is not yet known. He left the game with a shoulder injury during the first half also, when the Bears were steamrolled for 320 yards and 21 first downs.
