Bears make decision on former Buckeyes quarterback Justin Fields
A day after head coach Matt Nagy said Justin Fields was set to start, the worst-case scenario came to fruition.
Fields has been placed on the COVID-19 list and will likely be out for Sunday’s game against the Vikings.
With him likely out, that means one of Andy Dalton or Nick Foles will get the start in what may be Nagy’s last game as head coach.
It’s been a tumultuous season for the Bears as hardly anything has gone right. They’re 6-10 going into this last game, but are coming off a dominant 29-3 win against the Giants last Sunday.
Fields has impressed as the starter this season, even if his stats don’t fully back that up. He has 1,870 yards passing with 7 touchdowns to 10 interceptions but has 3 touchdowns and 2 interceptions in his last 3 starts.
Kickoff on Sunday will be at 1 p.m. ET.
