Matt Nagy announced that Leonard Floyd fractured his hand and underwent surgery to fix it on Sunday.

It's possible Floyd could return for the regular-season opener at Green Bay on September 9 and play through the injury with a cast. "We're staying optimistic for Green Bay". It occurred on a cut block late in the first quarter of the Bears' preseason game against the Broncos; Floyd hit the ground and injured his hand as he braced himself.

"He's staying positive, he's in good spirits", said Nagy of Floyd.

The Bears coach revealed that Floyd likely will have to wear something to protect his broken hand during games.

Nagy said that Floyd remains in a good frame of mind after the procedure.

"It might require something in regards to having a cast or a club-type deal and there's been evidence of guys that have had that and been productive, and that's what we're hoping right now", Nagy said.

Nagy knows that Floyd's injury could have been much worse. Against the Lions in November, a PCL and MCL injury brought an end to his season after ten games in which he had 4.5 sacks and 34 tackles.

Like last year's knee injury, which was a result of a teammate rolling into his leg, Floyd was a victim again of a fluke.
