The Chicago Bears suffered a disappointing 31-10 road loss to the New York Jets on Sunday afternoon.
The Bears star quarterback Justin Fields was still recovering from his shoulder injury that he suffered in the loss against the Falcons and didn't play in the contest.
Bears head coach Matt Eberflus was asked by reporters and injury status update on Fields during the postgame availability.
“We think that he’s getting better every single day,” Eberflus said. “He felt better every single day. At gametime today, he wasn’t ready to perform and protect himself. I suspect we’ll see where it goes.”
“It really comes down to one thing: his strength,” Eberflus said. “He didn’t have the strength to protect himself in the game properly, and to perform the way that he wanted to perform.”
Fields has passed for 1,642 yards with 13 touchdowns and eight passing touchdowns with a QBR of 54.8. He also 122 rushes for 834 yards and seven scores.
Next up for the Bears is a rivalry matchup with the Packers on Sunday (noon/FOX) and then a bye week.
