Briles confirms a dislocated elbow for RB Devin Chafin. Expects him to miss about three weeks or so.

Chafin entered Saturday's game third on the team with 76 carries and 368 rushing yards. His eight rushing touchdowns are second behind Shock Linwood's 13. The Bears have good depth at running back, but Chafin was a powerful runner who gave defenses a different look.
