GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Chicago quarterback Brian Hoyer has been taken to the locker room with an apparent left arm injury in the second quarter Thursday night against Green Bay.

Hoyer was knocked out 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.

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.
