    Large sections of seats sat empty as the clock ticked down Sunday afternoon at Soldier Field, with fans fleeing not only the cold, rainy weather but also another miserable Chicago Bears loss. As rookie quarterback Justin Fields sat out with broken ribs, veteran Andy Dalton threw four interceptions on the way to a 33-22 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals scored three touchdowns and made a field goal on the drives after the interceptions, including touchdowns after picks on the Bears’ first two drives. The result was the Bears’ sixth loss in seven games and eighth overall. While the Cardinals welcomed back quarterback Kyler Murray and top wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins from injuries, the Bears (4-8) were missing multiple stars, including Fields, who was not medically cleared to play after being limited in practice all week. Outside linebacker Khalil Mack is out for the season. Defensive lineman Akiem Hicks and wide receiver Allen Robinson missed their third straight games with injuries. Those absences made an upset of the Cardinals (10-2) an unlikely dream. ...
    At some point on a frigid, rainy Sunday afternoon at Soldier Field … In front of booing Chicago Bears fans and apathetic ones who eventually bolted early to the warmth of their cars … Between Bears quarterback Andy Dalton’s first and fourth interceptions … In the middle of the Bears’ sixth loss in seven games, a 33-22 blowout against the Arizona Cardinals … The Bears’ headsets bridging play calls from offensive coordinator Bill Lazor to Dalton went out. As if the 4-8 Bears, depleted of several of their best players, needed more issues to deal with, Bears coach Matt Nagy was on the sideline screaming play calls from Lazor in the coaches’ box to Dalton on the field. “Like high school out there,” Nagy said of the situation before he obtained a walkie-talkie that allowed him to relay the call from Lazor to Dalton’s headset. It was the second time in two games at Soldier Field that Nagy referenced a headset issue, and this one lasted most of the second half, he said. ...

    Getty Andy Dalton of the Chicago Bears threw four INTs Week 13 in the team's 33-22 loss to the Cardinals. Andy Dalton didn’t even try to sugar coat it. The veteran quarterback for the Chicago Bears threw four interceptions in the team’s Week 13 loss to the Arizona Cardinals while filling in for injured rookie Justin Fields. It was the fifth time in his career Dalton threw 4+ picks, and after the game, he gave a frank and self-critical assessment of his performance. When asked if his first interception, a high and wide ball over the middle intended for receiver Jakeem Grant was a good throw, Dalton did not mince words. “No. I left it a little high and a little behind him,” the Red Rifle admitted. “The thing that is unfortunate in this league is that tipped balls usually don’t find the ground. They usually find the other team’s hands. We saw that three times today.” ALL the latest Bears news straight to your inbox! Subscribe to the Heavy on Bears newsletter here! Join Heavy on...

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields is not expected to return from his ribs injury Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, but one of his fellow rookies could potentially see his first NFL game action. Bears coach Matt Nagy named quarterback Andy Dalton the starter and Nick Foles the backup for the Week 13 game at Soldier Field, saying Fields is making progress but wasn’t ready to be medically cleared to play. Meanwhile, the Bears have cleared rookie offensive tackle Teven Jenkins to be activated 3½ months after he underwent back surgery. Jenkins, the No. 39 draft pick out of Oklahoma State in the spring, returned to practice Nov. 15 and is feeling good, Nagy said. Nagy indicated Jenkins — for now — will be offensive line depth behind veteran left tackle Jason Peters and rookie right tackle Larry Borom, but he also could be used on the field-goal/extra-points team or in special situations. Nagy said a rotation with Borom midseason might be too difficult to execute. “When you draft a guy you’re always anticipating how he’s going...

    During a week of confusion and tumult, reports and rumors, the Chicago Bears needed something to lean on. Anything, really. Burdened by their five-game losing streak and then left to sift through the growing uncertainty regarding coach Matt Nagy’s job security, players and coaches had to push to retain their focus and the concentration of those around them. Veteran quarterback Andy Dalton was happy to do his part. On Wednesday night, at Nagy’s behest, Dalton spoke to the team at their hotel as a way of helping to recenter the group. A day later, he threw for 317 yards, drilled a 17-yard second-quarter touchdown pass to tight end Jimmy Graham and led an 18-play, game-winning field-goal drive that allowed the Bears to edge the last-place Detroit Lions 16-14 on the final snap at Ford Field. Dalton’s Thanksgiving eve pep talk? “I just spoke from the heart,” he said. “It’s what it all boils down to. I just felt like there was something in talking about what we needed in this moment.” Added receiver Darnell Mooney on...
    LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The quarterback path taken by the Chicago Bears this season has not quite been one coach Matt Nagy anticipated in preseason. After the effective performance given by veteran Andy Dalton in the last two games, the Bears believe they at least have a viable standby as starter Justin Fields sits because of a painful rib injury — and there is no QB budding controversy. Nagy on Friday described Fields’ injury for the first time. “I can confirm him having cracked ribs,” Nagy said. “But at the same point in time, he’s moving around pretty good.” So Fields’ availability to face Arizona when the Bears play again Dec. 5 is unknown. “There hasn’t been throwing,” Nagy said. “But that’s stuff that, you’ve got to be careful with that right away when it happens.” Although Nagy offered no timeline on the rookie’s return, Dalton was able to lead the Bears to late go-ahead scoring drives in successive games, and to Thursday’s 16-14 win over the Detroit Lions to snap a five-game losing streak. Dalton has...
    Getty Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. During their Thanksgiving day game against the Detroit Lions, the Chicago Bears had a veteran quarterback playing in place of rookie first-round pick Justin Fields (cracked ribs). The veteran was a 10-year pro — Andy Dalton — who was starting his fourth game of the season for the Bears, but the just second since Fields became the full-time starter in Week 3. During the fourth quarter of Chicago’s eventual victory over the Lions, Dalton took a 3rd-and-7 snap and flipped it to running back David Montgomery, who took the pass and went 12 yards with it, picking up the first down. After the play, Fox commentator and Hall of Fame quarterback, Troy Aikman, compared Dalton to a star quarterback in Kansas City, which caused Aikman to be roasted on Twitter for his bold take.

    The Chicago Bears will try to move past a strange couple of days and focus on topping the Detroit Lions on Thursday at Ford Field. After the Bears’ fifth straight loss Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens, their short week to get ready for the Lions was disrupted by a report that the Bears planned to fire coach Matt Nagy after the Thanksgiving game. Bears Chairman George McCaskey told players and coaches that report was not true, according to the Athletic, but it still put a wrinkle in the team’s preparations. Now the Bears will try to put that distraction out of their minds as they get ready to start quarterback Andy Dalton for the first time since Sept. 19. Dalton will start in place of Justin Fields, who is recovering from a ribs injury he suffered during the game against the Ravens. Meanwhile, the 0-9-1 Lions will try for their first win of the season behind quarterback Jared Goff, who recovered from an oblique injury and is expected to start, according to NFL Network.

    DETROIT (CBS) — Head Coach Matt Nagy will be at the helm in the Bears’ Thanksgiving Day matinee against the winless Detroit Lions. Before the team headed to Michigan, Bears Chairman George McCaskey reportedly told the coaches and players there is no truth to the report claiming Nagy would be fired after the Thursday game. READ MORE: One Man Killed, One Wounded In Knife Fight At Clark/Lake Loop 'L' StationEarlier this week, Mark Konkol with The Patch reported the Bears informed Nagy that Thursday’s game will be his last as coach, but during his Tuesday press conference at Halas Hall, Nagy said “that is not accurate.” Nagy said he has not had any such discussions with Bears chairman George McCaskey, CEO Ted Philips, or general manager Ryan Pace. “I have great communication with ownership, with George and Ted and Ryan, but I have not had any discussions,” he said.

    For a short week, the lead-up to the Chicago Bears’ game against the Detroit Lions on Thursday has had a whole lot of drama. An injury to rookie quarterback Justin Fields and the return of veteran Andy Dalton as the starter. A report that coach Matt Nagy had been told he will be fired after the Thanksgiving game and Nagy’s subsequent denial. And — oh, yeah — the Bears trying to move past a five-game losing streak after giving up game-winning drives in the last minute of the last two games. Now the Bears face the Lions, whose own ongoing drama is that they haven’t won a game since Dec. 6, 2020. The opponent? The Bears.

    Justin Fields’ growth process has been interrupted. For now, anyway, the focus is on Fields’ injured ribs. The Chicago Bears rookie left Sunday’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens early in the third quarter and did not return. He won’t play in Thursday’s Thanksgiving Day game in Detroit, and a more concrete timeline for his return has yet to emerge. What exactly is the severity of Fields’ injury? It’s difficult to say. In a video a friend posted on Instagram on Sunday evening, Fields said his ribs weren’t broken but just bruised. Coach Matt Nagy wouldn’t confirm that part of the diagnosis when asked about it Monday morning. “I can’t rule out anything,” he said. “All I can say is we’re waiting to get feedback and then that’s what we’ve got to go off of.” On Tuesday, Nagy confirmed that the Bears won’t push Fields back into action this week with a significant injury and such a short turnaround. Fields has never experienced the Sunday-to-Thursday recovery and preparation process, which is incredibly demanding even for players who are...

The Chicago Bears rookie left Sunday’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens early in the third quarter and did not return. His availability for Thursday’s Thanksgiving Day game in Detroit is in serious jeopardy. A more concrete timeline for his return has yet to emerge. What exactly is the severity of Fields’ injury?

    By the time Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy and his players spoke to the media Monday at Halas Hall, they had only about 72 hours to prepare for Thursday’s game against the Detroit Lions. The quick turnaround demanded they move on quickly from Sunday’s brutal 16-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Here are three things we heard from Nagy and players as they regrouped. 1. As Justin Fields deals with injured ribs, the turnaround is reportedly too quick for him to start against the Lions. Nagy didn’t provide an update on the injured ribs Fields suffered in the third quarter Sunday, though multiple reports — including an Instagram video of Fields — said initial tests showed his ribs are bruised but not broken. Fields also reportedly had his spleen checked out, but Nagy said the injury is only to Fields’ ribs. NFL Network reported Monday night that after a day of tests on Fields’ injury, the Bears determined they will start Andy Dalton instead of Fields on Thursday. Nagy said the Bears were evaluating Fields’...
    Bears fans hoping to enjoy Thanksgiving may not want to turn on the game against the Lions as Chicago won’t have Justin Fields under center.  Despite the overall struggles of the Chicago Bears this season, fans have been able to hang their hats on rookie quarterback Justin Fields and the flashes he’s shown amid less than ideal circumstances. With Thanksgiving approaching, it was one thing that fans could certainly be thankful for. On actual Thanksgiving Day as the Bears face off with the NFC North-rival Lions, however, there will be very little thanks being given regarding the team on the field. After Fields was forced out of Sunday’s loss to the Ravens with bruised ribs that forced the team to evaluate the rookie’s spleen, the short turnaround to playing on Thursday will keep him off the field, meaning that Andy Dalton will get the start against Detroit, per Ian Rapoport.

    Lamar Jackson versus Justin Fields turned into Tyler Huntley versus Andy Dalton on Sunday at Soldier Field. The marquee matchup between Jackson, the former league MVP for the Baltimore Ravens, and Fields, the Chicago Bears rookie quarterback, never materialized because Jackson sat out with an illness. By midway through the third quarter, Fields was also out after injuring his ribs on a 6-yard carry. That made for a significantly different game, and Huntley did enough to pull out the 16-13 Ravens victory. He led a 72-yard touchdown drive in the final two minutes, and Ravens running back Devonta Freeman scored on a 3-yard run for the victory. The Bears lost their fifth straight game and for the fourth time coming out of a bye week in four seasons under coach Matt Nagy. Huntley had passes of 21 and 30 yards on the drive, and Bears cornerback Kindle Vildor committed a 21-yard pass interference penalty. Ravens kicker Justin Tucker made field goals from 35, 27 and 46 yards. The latter, which came after the Ravens blocked...
    For those Chicago Bears fans hanging on through this 3-7 season because they at least can watch rookie quarterback Justin Fields’ growth, Sunday’s 16-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens was like taking a helmet to the gut. Fields missed most of the second half at Soldier Field after suffering injured ribs, and his status is in question for Thursday’s game against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field. Bears coach Matt Nagy was typically evasive with his answers about Fields’ injury after the game. He said he didn’t know if Fields’ ribs are broken, whether the injury happened on one play or was a result of several hits or if there is a chance Fields could recover in time for the Thanksgiving game. “We’ve just got to see where Justin is at,” Nagy said. “When you’re talking about ribs, you’ve got to find out how much it affects him. We as a staff have to talk through all that.” Fields’ friend Simeon Kelley posted an Instagram video of Fields lying down after the game and said...
    Getty Bears QB Justin Fields confirmed he has bruised ribs. Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields suffered the most significant injury of his young career in the team’s Week 11 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. The rookie QB left the game in the third quarter with a rib injury and did not return. Veteran Andy Dalton stepped in, almost leading the team to a comeback win in the final minutes, but the primary concern was the health of Chicago’s future franchise quarterback.

    Getty Andy Dalton took over for an injured Justin Fields, and Twitter had some things to say about it. After Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields left the team’s Week 11 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens in the second half with a rib injury, veteran backup Andy Dalton entered the game in relief. Fields and the Bears’ offense had been ineffective all game, failing to put any points on the board several minutes into the third quarter when the rookie QB was injured while scrambling on a 3rd down play. Fields was eventually ruled out with a rib injury, which led to the Red Rifle’s return. Dalton promptly led the team down the field, netting 83 yards and a touchdown on just two plays.

Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy officially named rookie quarterback Justin Fields the team’s starter moving forward — even with a fully healthy Andy Dalton. “The last couple weeks we’ve had some good conversations internally,” Nagy said on October 6. “Continuing that process this week, it’s led to making the decision to move with Justin as the starter. You know we’ve been patient with this. We’ve grown with him. We’re proud of Justin. He’s been a great teammate from the very beginning.” Fields showed solid improvements from Week 3 to Week 4, and he made plays Dalton simply couldn’t make, like this: This was arguably Justin Fields’ best throw of the day.

    The 25 coolest TV characters of all time 9 Ways To Negotiate Your Bills and Get Out of Debt Fast It took the Chicago Bears two and a half games to realize Justin Fields was the right man for the job. Fields will remain the team's starter even when Andy Dalton is healthy, head coach Matt Nagy announced Wednesday. The news comes as a surprise considering Nagy called Dalton the team's starter Monday. Dalton started the first two games for the Bears. He injured his knee during the team's Week 2 win over the Cincinnati Bengals and is still recovering from that injury. Up until Wednesday, Nagy was adamant Dalton would remain the team's starter when he was healthy enough to play.  It's unclear what changed in those two days. Perhaps the Bears felt better about Fields after watching tape from the team's Week 4 win over the Detroit Lions, or perhaps Nagy knows his job is dependent on winning with Fields.  No matter the reason, Nagy is confident Fields is the best choice for the team.
