CHICAGO (670 The Score) -- Bears quarterback Nick Foles was carted off the field in the final minute of Chicago's 19-13 loss to Minnesota on Monday night after being slammed to the turf while throwing an incomplete pass.

Foles' hip and leg were being evaluated, coach Matt Nagy said postgame. The Bears were still working through preliminary details regarding Foles' health immediately after the game.

"He was in a lot of pain," Nagy said. "He's a tough dude, but he was in a lot of pain."

The injury occurred with 37 seconds remaining in the game as Foles took a hit from Vikings pass rusher Ifeadi Odenigbo and was driven to the ground violently. Foles remained down on the ground for several minutes before being helped to his feet and assisted onto the cart, where he sat upright and was greeted by Bears teammates.

Foles was 15-of-26 for 106 yards and an interception. Tyler Bray entered for the remainder of the game, going 1-of-5 for 18 yards before the Bears' final drive stalled​.

Foles has been the Bears' starting quarterback since he replaced Mitchell Trubisky during a game on Sept. 27. Trubisky is currently sidelined with a right shoulder injury.

The Bears have a bye week looming. They remain uncertain as to whether Trubisky can return against the Packers on Nov. 29. Should he and Foles remain out, Bray would be in line become Chicago's new starting quarterback.
