Bears QB Brian Hoyer leaves with apparent left arm injury

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Chicago Bears quarterback Brian Hoyer broke his left arm in the second quarter Thursday night against the Green Bay Packers.

Hoyer left the game after getting hit by Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers on an incompletion on third-and-6 from the 50 with 10:21 left in the quarter.

The right-handed Hoyer looked as if he landed on his left arm. He was attended to by trainers on the field for a couple minutes before going to the locker room.

Hoyer was 4 of 11 for 49 yards. He started for Jay Cutler, who missed his fifth straight game with a right thumb injury.

The only other quarterback on the Bears' active roster is Matt Barkley, who started Chicago's next series.

The Bears also lost right guard Kyle Long in the second quarter to an arm injury.
