Shark Bites

Bears HC Matt Nagy isn't giving anything to 1st-round pick Justin Fields before he earns it. "Andy is the starter," Nagy reiterated this week, according to NFL.com. "Andy's going to get the one reps." It's no shock that Dalton will open full-team workouts as the starter. What will be worth watching is how soon Fields claims some of those reps. Nagy said Fields needs to speed up his pre-snap recognition and improve at reading defenses. "He's going to get a great opportunity to do that against our defense," Nagy said. "I think that's where we're going to have to see, are there a lot of mistakes being made? Or are there a lot of good plays that are being made? And is it natural and is it easy for him? That's what what we'll evaluate." History says Fields will take over this offense at some point before the 2021 season ends, but Nagy was the OC in Kansas City when Patrick Mahomes sat for a year behind Alex Smith. We'll certainly be watching this situation throughout summer.

Bears QB Andy Dalton could miss "an additional week or two" beyond this week with the bone bruise to his left knee, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. QB Justin Fields will make his 1st career start vs. the Browns today and might also be under center the next 2 weeks vs. Lions and Raiders.

Bears QB Andy Dalton (knee) is considered "week to week," according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Dalton hasn't officially been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns, but he certainly seems like a long shot for that one. It's Justin Fields time!

An MRI confirmed that Bears QB Andy Dalton escaped with only a bone bruise in his left knee in Sunday's win over the Bengals. It's not yet clear whether he'll miss further time, but Dalton did at least avoid major injury. HC Matt Nagy has said Dalton will remain the starter when he's back healthy.

Testing on Bears QB Andy Dalton's knee revealed no ACL or MCL damage, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Dalton is believed to be dealing with a bone bruise, although we're still waiting for confirmation on that. It at least seems like Dalton avoided a major injury. HC Matt Nagy wouldn't commit to a healthy Dalton as his starter when asked Monday morning -- but the Bears' PR team later "delivered a message" from Nagy that Dalton remains the starter, per insider Brad Biggs. We'll see where this goes.

Bears HC Matt Nagy said after the win over the Bengals that he's "pretty sure" QB Andy Dalton's knee injury isn't to his ACL. So that's good. Dalton is scheduled for an MRI on Monday, so we'll learn more then. QB Justin Fields was up and down in relief of QB Andy Dalton today. He completed 6 of 13 passes for 60 yards and a bad INT. But he added 31 yards on 10 carries. Fields needs to be owned in all fantasy leagues.
