Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields provides update on injured knee
Bears quarterback Justin Fields looks to be all systems go for Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.
Fields spoke to the media on Wednesday afternoon and said that he’s playing after he injured his knee against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Bears QB Justin Fields says of his knee, "I'll be good by Sunday."

Fields has been up and down since being named the Bears’ starting quarterback. In Chicago’s win over Las Vegas, Fields finished with 111 yards passing and 1 touchdown pass as Chicago won 20-9.
That said, in 5 games thus far, he has just 458 yards with that lone passing touchdown and 2 interceptions. He also has a 51.4% completion percentage and he’ll need that to go up by a whole lot if the Bears are to win against Green Bay.
It will be the first-ever meeting between Rodgers and Fields as kickoff will be at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday from Soldier Field. If the Bears win, they’d get to 4-2 and 1st place in the NFC North.
