Bears make decision on QB starter vs. Lions


by - Senior Editor -

Good news to report for most Chicago fans.

The redemption game of Justin Fields is on.

The Bears announced on Saturday that the rookie quarterback with be the starter after veteran QB Andy Dalton was downgraded to 'doubtful' with his knee injury in the latest injury report.

Fields was 6-for-20 passing for 68 yards against the Browns last week.

"This week's practice compared to last week's practice, I felt just more comfortable at practice just kinda getting that under my belt and getting kinda past that," Fields said to the media. "Last week, you really can't get worse than that. I mean, I hope not. But I felt comfortable this week."

This should be fun to watch as the Bears certainly have a winnable game against the Lions on Sunday.
