Horrific Bears get more bad news for week 7

The Bears 2023 season hasn’t been one of much joy so far, so fans will probably not be surprised that starting QB Justin Fields is unable to go for week 7.

Bears HC Matt Eberflus gave an update on Fields, confirming the QB won’t play week 7, but offering some hope, “He’s improving. The mobility’s getting better, the swelling went down, the grip strength is better. It’s trending in the right direction. He’ll be week to week and we’ll know more Monday.”

“The grip strength is really where it is, the functionality of it,” Eberflus went on. “If we see more of that — and it’s obviously trending in the right direction, that’s what it’s done this week. That’s where it’s looking good. Obviously Justin’s our starter and we’re working him back in there, so we’ll see where it goes and as he progresses we’ll see where it is.”


It had been a tough start to the season for Justin Fields, including a thinly veiled public criticism of OC Luke Getsy. But over the last few weeks fields had been starting to click, throwing for 28/35, 335 yards, 4 touchdowns and 1 interception against the Broncos, and following that up with 15/29, 282 yards, 4 touchdowns against the Commanders in the Bears first win of the season.
