    Justin Fields is moving around “pretty good,” according to coach Matt Nagy, but it’s premature to say what the rookie quarterback’s status will be with the Chicago Bears, who launched into a mini-bye weekend Friday. Fields was inactive for Thursday’s come-from-behind, 16-14 victory over the Detroit Lions at Ford Field, sidelined with what Nagy confirmed were cracked ribs. On Friday morning, with players set to be off for the weekend, Nagy said he didn’t know the recovery time, but it’s certainly possible the first-round draft pick could return and start against the Arizona Cardinals on Dec. 5 at Soldier Field. “We have some time on our side right now,” Nagy said. “Every day matters for him. I think he’s doing a good job of keeping the communication open. But we’re going to have to wait and see truly where his health is to the point of him being able to play or not play. We don’t want to obviously risk more injury to him as well.” The status of inside linebacker Roquan Smith also remains up in...

    Justin Fields is the Chicago Bears franchise quarterback — or at least the hope is he will be once he is named the starter. We’re tracking the first-round pick’s performance in every game of his rookie season. Preseason game No. 1: Bears 20, Dolphins 13 The first big boost to Justin Fields mania didn’t arrive until the third quarter Saturday afternoon at Soldier Field. The Bears rookie quarterback evaded Dolphins linebacker Tyshun Render near the 15-yard line, sprinted to his left and then lowered his shoulder to plow into the end zone for an 8-yard touchdown run. Bears fans who likely had been taking deep, calming breaths and reminding themselves it was only the preseason opener for most of the first half let loose with excitement. Fields’ NFL preseason debut didn’t get off to a pretty start, but the first-round draft pick did enough by the time he left the game to keep the hype train rolling. In about two quarters of work, Fields completed 14 of 20 passes for 142 yards and a...

    Will RB Khalil Herbert carve out a role with the Chicago Bears? Usayd Koshul August 17, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit When the Chicago Bears drafted running back Khalil Herbert in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL Draft, questions immediately arose about Herbert’s role with the team. With veterans, David Montgomery, Tarik Cohen, and Damien Williams on the roster, Herbert’s future with the Bears seemed to be another special teams player. Fast forward to Saturday’s preseason contest against the Miami Dolphins and Herbert was one of the Bears’ bright spots. With six rushing attempts for 38 yards, Herbert averaged 6.3 yards per carry. His receiving ability was on display too with three receptions for 11 yards, averaging 3.7 yards per reception. “He’s really caught my attention,” said Bears head coach Matt Nagy via the Bears official YouTube channel. “He’s somebody that you talk about the word trust, he hasn’t made many mistakes as a rookie. He’s very, very smooth. When he gets the football,...
    Getty QB Justin Fields Chad Johnson has some words of wisdom for Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields. Johnson, who was a two-time All-Pro and six-time Pro Bowler with the Cincinnati Bengals from 2001-2010, never played with Andy Dalton, who arrived in Cincy in 2011. Perhaps that’s why he directed his advice at Fields and not the veteran signal-caller. It’s clear Johnson was being tongue and cheek when he advised Fields to do the following via Twitter: “Justin I’m always open but since I’m busy Allen Robinson is as well, no matter what the play call is you can always change it at the los & throw to him to make year 1 easy,” Johnson Tweeted.

    The Chicago Bears signed Justin Fields to his rookie contract this week, and they better take advantage of that four-year window. The Vikings are a tale of why hitting on a quarterback in the NFL Draft can be so important. Rather than drafting a quarterback in 2017, the Vikings signed Kirk Cousins, and have yet to reach their ultimate goal. Cousins is a solid player, don’t get me wrong. He’s often the victim of underserving clout, and this isn’t an attempt to pile on. Yet, he’ll never be considered a top-10 quarterback, and for good reason. He’s paid like one, and it limits the Vikings from adding elsewhere. To put it into perspective how cost effective it is to have a competent QB on a rookie contract…before halftime of their 11th game this season the Vikings will pay Kirk Cousins the exact same amount that the Bears will end up paying Justin Fields over the entire next 4 years. https://t.co/fbEZcapzM2 — Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) June 11, 2021 With Justin Fields signing his rookie deal that could tie him to...
    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields has inked his rookie deal. According to ProFootballTalk, the former Ohio State superstar has signed his rookie deal for $18.871 million fully guaranteed over four years. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Justin Fields (@justnfields) Fields, who is competing for Andy Dalton for the starting job, will get a signing bonus north of $11 million after being the 11th overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Justin Fields (@justnfields) Rookie contracts are obviously pretty slotted at this point, and the old days of huge dollars being thrown around ended a long time ago. Having said that, getting more than $18 million fully guaranteed is a nice chunk of change for the young NFL passer before playing a single snap of pro ball.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Chicago Bears (@chicagobears) Fields might have fallen further than expected in...
    Five questions for the Chicago Bears rookie class this offseason Usayd Koshul May 23, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe Chicago Bears entered the 2021 NFL Draft with a number of questions. With no long-term solution at quarterback and no franchise-caliber left tackle, combined with limited resources, many saw it being difficult for the Bears to come away with any sort of significant haul. Instead, general manager Ryan Pace managed to find the Bears’ future franchise quarterback in Justin Fields and left tackle in Teven Jenkins. Chicago added depth at key positions like wide receiver, offensive tackle, defensive line, and cornerback. With still over a week until the Bears return to Halas Hall for OTA’s, there is plenty to talk about. The Bears rookie class has many excited because it could finally turn around the Bears franchise. As we’ve mentioned previously here at Fireside Bears, Chicago’s 2021 rookie class will be dictated by how the Fields pick pans out. But there are plenty of reasons to be excited about Chicago’s rookie class. There are also...
    LAKE FOREST, Ill. (CBS) — Saturday marked the second day of Bears rookie minicamp up at Halas Hall. Matt Nagy was still scarce on the practice field. He had to watch via Zoom on Saturday as he did on Friday because he was a close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.

The sixth-round pick is hoping to make an impact in the backfield and possibly as a return man as well. One thing Herbert and anyone who has watched Fields has noticed is how serious he is when he steps on the football field.

    Getty Khalil Mack of the Chicago Bears runs a drill during training camp. Chicago Bears rookie Cole Kmet is already making an excellent first impression on coaches and teammates alike. The Bears selected the tight end out of Notre Dame with the 43rd overall pick this year with the hope that he’ll be their future at the position, and early indicators from Halas Hall suggest things are going swimmingly for Kmet, who met with the media after practice Thursday. Via Zoom, Kmet discussed how he’s getting acclimated to the professional game, as well as what he thinks about playing for the team he worshipped growing up as a local kid in Arlington Heights, Illinois. Oh yeah, and he also talked about what it was like going up against No. 52.
