Bears QB Fields Out for Finale


Bears QB Fields Out for Finale

Justin Fields has emerged as a playmaker for the Bears during his second NFL season, but his campaign is officially over after Week 17's loss to the Lions. Days ahead of Chicago's regular-season finale against the Vikings, head coach Matt Eberflus told reporters that Fields will miss Week 18 with a hip injury, and backup Nathan Peterman will start at quarterback in his place.
Fields required an MRI on Monday after suffering hip soreness following Sunday's loss, Eberflus explained, and tests revealed a strain. The injury isn't a long-term concern, he added, but will sideline the QB this week. With veteran No. 2 Trevor Siemian on injured reserve, Peterman will make his first start since 2018, when he played two games as the Bills' first-string QB.
