Linebacker Luke Kuechly tackled Bernard hard on a run, landing on top of him. Bernard got up slowly and came to the sideline, where a doctor looked at his right shoulder. Bernard went to the locker room for an evaluation.
Bernard had a career-high 115 yards when he got hurt, including an 89-yard touchdown run.
