Kris Bryant Leaves Game After Collision with Jason Heyward (UPDATES: Cleared to Travel)

Chicago Cubs Highlights, Chicago Cubs News

As if today’s ongoing drubbing at the hands of the Reds wasn’t bad enough, Kris Bryant left the game after an outfield collision with Jason Heyward.

It looks like Bryant did not realize Heyward was calling for the ball (not sure how aggressively Heyward was calling), and ducked his head down near Heyward’s shoulder.

After time with the trainer and Joe Maddon, Bryant gingerly left the field. We’ll update when there’s more on the injury.

UPDATE: I can’t tell if this is a terrifying update, or no update at all:

“We don’t know exactly what we’re doing with this whole thing yet.”

UPDATE 2: Thanks for the words, Mooney. They do not comfort me at all:

UPDATE 3: OK, so this one is a sliver of positivity:

That doesn’t necessarily mean he’s “fine,” but it does mean the initial evaluation suggested there was a decent chance he could play this week.
