Justin Fields is back on the practice field for the Chicago Bears (3-10) on Thursday after missing the previous day with an illness. The former Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback will need to be his best as Chicago hosts the Philadelphia Eagles, who have the best record in the NFL at 12-1, this upcoming Sunday, Dec. 18.

Fields has been a bright spot for the Bears this season as they were eliminated from postseason play following a 28-19 home loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 13.
