Chicago Bears officially update status of Justin Fields for Thanksgiving Day
The Chicago Bears are coming off of a 16-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens after leading with under 2 minutes left in the game.
The Bears now look ahead to their Thanksgiving Day matchup with the Detroit Lions. Both teams are coming into this game on a losing streak as Detroit’s last game was a 13-10 loss to the Cleveland Browns. However, it doesn’t look like the Lions will be facing the Bears starting QB.
Former Ohio State QB Justin Fields will be out for the game after a rib injury. Fields suffered the rib injury during the Ravens game and left the game listed as questionable. He also didn’t practice on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday.
The injury report was tweeted out by the Chicago Bears PR account.

The last win for the Bears was in Week 5 against the Las Vegas Raiders. The Lion’s last win was actually against the Bears in Week 13 of the 2020 NFL season, so this should be interesting.
One of these teams has to come out on top of this one as a winner. The two sides play Thursday at 12:30 p.m. ET on FOX.
