CHICAGO -- Chicago Bears running back Garrett Wolfe remained hospitalized Monday after suffering a kidney injury in the 41-21 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, a league source confirmed.

According to the source, Wolfe is expected to return at some point this season, and may end up missing only a handful of games.

The Bears initially announced Wolfe's ailment as a back injury. Lovie Smith will meet the media at 3 p.m. ET, and may shed some more light on the injuries to Wolfe, Charles Tillman and Al Afalava.

This story was first reported by the Chicago Sun-Times.
