The Chicago Cubs have bit hit hard by injuries this year and, unfortunately, that trend doesn't appear to be going away in the final week of the season.

Cubs All-Star third baseman Kris Bryant suffered a nasty-looking injury trying to beat out a double play against the St. Louis Cardinals today.

Bryant had to be helped off the field and appeared to be in major pain.

The Cubs' star has since been replaced by Ian Happ.

Bryant appeared to land awkwardly on what looked like a wet first base.

Bryant was hustling down the line and extended hard, attempting to beat the throw to first base. His foot slipped on the bag and he went down awkwardly. NBC Sports Chicago posted video of the play:

Javy Baez, Anthony Rizzo and, now, Kris Bryant have all gone down with tough injuries at various points in the final stretch of the season here.

The Cubs, who trail the Brewers by three games in the Wild Card race, are tied with the Cardinals, 1-1, in the fourth inning.

Stay tuned for more updates on Bryant.
