Bears News: He's Back! Justin Fields to start against rival Packers


by - Senior Editor -

QB1 is back again.

Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields will start Sunday's rivalry game against the Green Bay Packers.

During his Wednesday press availability, Coach Matt Nagy announced that Fields' three cracked ribs are fully healed.

Fields has passed for 1,361 yards for the season with four touchdowns and eight interceptions. He also has 56 rushes for 311 yards and two touchdowns.

It's great news for Bears fans as it should be fun to see Fields battle Aaron Rodgers again, but this time at iconic Lambeau Field.

The game will be played at 7:20 p.m. CT on Sunday.
