The Chicago Bears have lost starting quarterback Brian Hoyer for the remainder of the season with a broken arm.

Hoyer was hit by Green Bay lineman (and former Bear) Julius Peppers in the second quarter of the Bears' 26-10 loss at Lambeau Field Thursday. Here's video of the hit.

So who's up next for Chicago?

They'll apparently go with former Southern Cal QB Matt Barkley. The 26-year-old is in his fourth year in the NFL, and had appeared in just four games (none of them starts) before stepping in for Hoyer Thursday. He's thrown a total of 65 passes now, for 0 touchdowns and 6 interceptions (two of which came against Green Bay).

Coach John Fox is apparently not considering playing the inconsistent Jay Cutler, for now.

The Bears are 1-6 on the season. Their next game is against the Vikings, at Soldier Field, on Halloween night.
