New England Patriots safety Patrick Chung left the field with his right arm in an air cast during the third quarter of Super Bowl LIII.

Chung, 31, was quickly ruled out for the rest of the game by the Patriots, and CBS reported on the broadcast he headed straight to the X-ray room.

Chung was injured while attempting a tackle against Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley. He reached in with his right arm, which was crunched between Gurley and Patriots cornerback Jonathan Jones.

Trainers attended to Chung as he slumped on the ground. A cart came on to the field, but Chung walked off under his own power as the cart followed slowly behind him and several trainers.

Chung finished the regular season with 84 tackles and an interception. The 10-year pro has 727 career tackles and 11 interceptions.
