Chicago Bears: Justin Fields suffers hand injury vs. Browns
|Sunday, September 26, 2021, 5:31 PM- -|
It was a dominant defensive performance by the Browns in their 26-6 win over the Bears on Sunday at First Energy Stadium.
Nine sacks and a myriad of quarterback pressures led to rookie quarterback Justin Fields running for his life on most plays.
Fields was the first quarterback since 1970 to be sacked at least nine times and throw for fewer than 100 yards (47 net yards) in his first career start.
During his postgame comments, Bears head coach Matt Nagy said that Fields suffered a hand injury during the contest.
“I think he might have dinged his hand up a little bit,” Nagy said. “I don’t know a whole lot of the details, but, yeah, I think he might have dinged it up a little bit.”
Fields later said that his hand is fine during his media access but took a precautionary X-ray.
This hand injury will be something important to monitor this week as hopefully everything is perfectly fine. Fields was 6-of-20 passing for 68 yards.
