The trainer and Joe Maddon saw Bryant and he eventually walked off the field very gingerly with their apparent upper-body injury.
Bryant is currently still under evaluation by the medical staff for a head-neck injury (not yet formally in concussion protocol) on Monday. If all goes well and he is cleared, he could return to the lineup in a day or two.
Heyward has some discomfort on his hip from the collision with KB according to ESPN's Jesse Rogers.
Both players are out of today's lineup against the Astros.
In his last seven games, Bryant has a .400 average with a homer and three RBI. For the season, he is batting .288 with 12 homers, 34 RBI, and a .411 on-base percentage.
In other Cubs news, Pedro Strop will make a rehab appearance in Iowa on Tuesday and might be able to return for the St. Louis series.
