Report: Fields having spleen examined in addition to ribs originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
The Bears loss to the Ravens in Week 11 was tough. “Sickening,” according to Robert Quinn. But arguably the toughest part was losing rookie quarterback Justin Fields to a ribs injury. However, a new report from Chris Mortensen and Jay Glazer says Fields’ examination after the game was a bit more in-depth than just getting x-rays to see if he broke anything.
To be clear, this does not necessarily mean Fields has sustained a serious injury. It could simply be a precautionary test.
After the game Matt Nagy did not have any update regarding Fields’ injury. He also couldn’t say whether or not Fields would be healthy enough to play on Thanksgiving when the Bears take on the Lions.
Before his injury, Fields was struggling too. He only completed 4-11 passes for 79 yards, adding 23 rushing yards on four carries.
