The 2019 quarterback curse appears to have claimed its latest victims.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky left Sunday’s game with a shoulder injury as he was taken down by Minnesota Vikings defensive end Danielle Hunter during the Bears’ first possession.

Trubisky was later seen on the sideline with his arm in a sling.

Earlier Sunday, Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen left the game against the Patriots after a brutal helmet-to-helmet collision with New England cornerback Jonathan Jones.

Jones was called for unnecessary roughness, but stayed in the game. Allen did not, placed in concussion protocol and replaced by Matt Barkley.

Following the 16-10 loss to the Patriots, Bills head coach Sean McDermott was livid over what he saw as a cheap shot.

“There’s no room in football for that," McDermott said. "It is a shame to see a player like Josh, or any player for that matter, go down on a hit like that.”

The status of both quarterbacks for Week 5 and beyond are not yet known, though Trubisky was seen with his left arm in a sling.

While the 2019 season is only four weeks old, big names like Ben Roethlisberger, Drew Brees and Cam Newton all go down with devastating injuries.
