Kyle Orton Injury Update: Chiefs Backup QB Injures Finger On First Play

With second-string quarterback Tyler Palko struggling for the Kansas City Chiefs against the Chicago Bears, Todd Haley decided to pull the string and put in the newly signed Kyle Orton into the lineup.

Then Orton went down. Quickly. Per the NFL Network's Rich Eisen's twitter account:

Kyle Orton makes first appearance as Chief...and dislocates a finger on this throwing hand. Good lord.

Tyler Palko has been re-inserted into the lineup and the Bears and Chiefs are tied 0-0 early in the second quarter. Matt Forte has also left the game with an apparent knee injury and will not return to the game for the Bears.

Here is the video of Orton's injury to his finger, he is questionable to return to the lineup for the Chiefs.
