LAKE FOREST, Illinois - Chicago Bears running back Rabih Abdullah was hospitalized and charged with driving under the influence after he crashed his sports utility vehicle early Tuesday morning.

Abdullah was taken to a local hospital where it was determined he suffered a concussion. No other injuries were identified, but he will remain under hospital observation until at least Wednesday.

"We're continuing to gather information regarding Rabih's accident," said Bears general manager Jerry Angelo. "Once we have all the facts we will act accordingly. We hold everyone in the organization to a higher standard. There are consequences for poor choices. We will not tolerate irresponsible behavior on or off the field."

Abdullah, 28, led the Bears in special teams tackles last season. He has four carries for six yards and four catches for 24 yards in three games this season.
