Signs point to no Justin Fields on Sunday


Bears quarterback in recent weeks Justin Fields became one of the brightest players in the NFL. We may have to wait at least another week to see him play again.

According to multiple reports, Fields is unlikely to play Sunday against the Jets. He made a trip to New Jersey, but at the moment he doesn’t seem to fit.

ESPN version more pessimistic than NFL media. The first says that Fields “shouldn’t play”. The latter claims that Fields will get the opportunity to go through the pre-game warm-up before making a decision.

The most obvious sign that Fields is not likely to quit came earlier in the day when the Bears lifted quarterback Nathan Peterman from the practice squad. He will be the second number of the game of the day Trevor Simianwho will start if Fields doesn’t play.

Simian played for the Jets in 2019, starting one game.

Fields injured his left (non-throwing) shoulder at the end of last Sunday’s loss to the Falcons. It has been described as misplaced, but several reports have refuted this claim. Despite everything, he is wounded. According to current reports, Fields will not play.
