Bears News: Justin Fields injury update

by - Senior Editor -

Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields dislocated his right thumb in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Bears head coach Matt Eberflus gave the latest with Fields' injury status during his media availability on Wednesday.

"It still comes down to the grip strength, where he is later in the week," Eberflus said. "We'll see. Right now, he's working with the trainers, and that's progressing well. We'll see where it is. We still think he's doubtful for this week."

Despite the swelling going "down some", Fields didn't practice on Wednesday, and surgery is not off the table yet.

"I believe we'll have some clarity later in the week, hopefully," Eberflus said. "We'll see where it is later in the week. Nothing's off the table; nothing's on the table right now."

Undrafted rookie Tyson Bagent is expected to make his first NFL start against the Raiders on Sunday.
