Fields had limited training on Wednesday and then said that if the game took place today, he would not be able to play. He called the pain “pretty intense” and said he felt it “almost every throw” while performing.

Fields admitted he would need pain medication on game day if he could go, but was unsure what he would wear to protect his injured shoulder.

“If I can play and I don’t increase my risk of injury and I can do whatever I need to do to protect myself, that will be enough for me to play,” Fields said. “Of course, I’m not going to sacrifice playing this game at the risk of not being able to play later. . . and will have to sit out another two or three weeks after that. I just listen to my body and make sure I don’t impose anything.”

Fields has thrown 13 touchdowns and eight interceptions this season.

Trevor Simian is Fields’ backup.

The Jets sent their starting quarterback to the bench, Zach WilsonSo Mike White will start against the Bears on Sunday.
