The Bears fired HC Matt Nagy. This move has been anticipated for weeks now. Nagy went 12-4 in his first season at the helm but totaled only 22 wins over the past 3 seasons. He also didn't seem to maximize QB Justin Fields' skill set this year. Chicago's next HC hire will be key for Fields' development.

Update: Chicago also fired GM Ryan Pace.

Bears QB Justin Fields was placed on the COVID list on Thursday. He'll very likely miss this weekend's finale vs. the Vikings. That figures to put Andy Dalton back under center for Chicago.

Bears HC Matt Nagy said QB Justin Fields (ankle) will put in a full practice on Wednesday and start Sunday's finale vs. the Vikings. Fields has missed the past 2 games, but he finished as a top-10 fantasy QB in each of his previous 4 full games. He's an intriguing Week 18 DFS play.

Bears QB Andy Dalton will start Sunday's game vs. the Giants, HC Matt Nagy announced on Friday. QB Nick Foles will be the backup, so QB Justin Fields evidently isn't ready to return from that ankle injury. Dalton is just a low-end QB2 in fantasy lineups, although he's not a significant downgrade from Fields for Chicago's skill-position guys.

Bears QB Justin Fields (ankle) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. We'll see if he can make it back for this weekend's game vs. the Giants, but Fields will be tough to trust in fantasy lineups if he's not at 100%.

Bears QB Justin Fields (ankle) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Seahawks. Someone named Ryan Willis will back up QB Nick Foles.

Bears HC Matt Nagy said Friday that QB Nick Foles will start Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks. QB Andy Dalton (left hand, groin) is out for Week 16, while QB Justin Fields (ankle) was unable to practice on Thursday or Friday. Nagy said that Fields might be active on Sunday, but it'd be as Foles' backup. Foles made 7 starts for the Bears last season, averaging 238 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT on a 66% completion rate and 5.9 yards per attempt.

Bears QB Justin Fields (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Seahawks. He was limited on Wednesday but didn’t practice on Thursday or Friday. It’s safe to assume that Fields won’t be at 100% if he starts Sunday’s game, which makes him tough to like in fantasy lineups. QB Andy Dalton (left hand, groin) is out for Week 16, so QB Nick Foles will get the start if Fields is out.

After a limited practice on Wednesday, Bears QB Justin Fields (ankle) did not practice on Thursday. His availability for this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks is now in question. QB Andy Dalton was activated from the COVID list on Thursday and would likely start if Fields is out. Check back tomorrow for another update on the rookie.

Bears HC Matt Nagy told reporters Wednesday that doctors have cleared QB Justin Fields to return from his rib injury and that the rookie will start Sunday night at Green Bay. We're not sure Fields' return significantly impacts the fantasy outlook for any Chicago skill-position players, especially against a Packers D that has been a tough matchup for opponent passing games. But Fields' play had been improving just before the injury, so this should be a positive turn overall.

Bears QB Justin Fields (ribs) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Cardinals. The rookie was limited in practice this week, giving him a shot to return in Week 14. QB Andy Dalton gets another start today.

Bears QB Justin Fields (ribs) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Cardinals. The rookie got back on the practice field this week, setting him up for a Week 14 return. Andy Dalton gets another start this Sunday but is a low-end QB2 vs. Arizona's 3rd-ranked QB defense.

Bears QB Justin Fields (ribs) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. HC Matt Nagy said that QB Andy Dalton took the 1st-team reps, though. That would seem to position the veteran as the favorite to start Sunday's game vs. the Cardinals, but we'll continue to monitor the situation.

Additional testing on Bears QB Justin Fields' ribs revealed "tiny fractures," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The injury is "not deemed major," Rapoport adds, and Fields "should return shortly." The rookie won't play against the Lions on Thanksgiving. We'll see if he can make it back for Week 13 vs. the Cardinals.

Bears QB Andy Dalton will start Thursday's game vs. the Lions, HC Matt Nagy said. QB Justin Fields' rib injury isn't believed to be serious, but he evidently won't be ready for the quick turnaround. We'll see if he can make it back for Week 13. Despite the plus matchup, Dalton is only in play in 2-QB leagues and Thanksgiving DFS contests.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says it'll be an "uphill battle" for Bears QB Justin Fields to play vs. the Lions on Thanksgiving. X-rays on Fields' ribs came back clean, but we're still waiting to hear the results from addiitonal testing being done today. Even if he avoided a significant injury, the quick turnaround to the 12:30 pm ET kickoff on Thursday will make it tough for the rookie to be ready. For now, plan on QB Andy Dalton starting that one.

The Bears believe QB Justin Fields is dealing with bruised ribs, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reported earlier that Fields went to the hospital for tests on his ribs and spleen. He's still scheduled for additional testing tomorrow, per Rapoport, but it sounds like Fields avoided a serious injury. We'll see if he's available for Thursday's game vs. the Lions.

Bears QB Justin Fields suffered a rib injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Ravens. He's questionable to return. We'll update Fields' status when we know more. QB Andy Dalton is in for Chicago.

Update: Fields has been ruled out.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Ravens after missing practice all week. He obviously needs to be on fantasy benches. Robinson's absence will make a thin Chicago pass-catching corps even thinner. WR Darnell Mooney and TE Cole Kmet should pick up extra targets.
