  Bears | Andy Dalton could miss another week or two    Sun Sep 26, 10:12 AM

Chicago Bears QB Andy Dalton (knee), who has already been ruled out for Week 3's game against the Cleveland Browns, could miss an additional one to two weeks depending on how quickly he recovers from a bone bruise on his left knee, according to multiple league sources.

Footballguys view: If Justin Fields can lead the Bears to a win today, it may not matter when Dalton is ready to play.

  Bears | Week 3 injury report for Chicago    Fri Sep 24, 02:43 PM

Chicago Bears QB Andy Dalton (knee) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns. DB Tashaun Gipson (hamstring) did not practice for a second straight day Friday, Sept. 24, and is listed as doubtful. DL Eddie Goldman (knee) also did not practice Friday and is listed as questionable. LB Jeremiah Attaochu (hamstring) and WR Darnell Mooney (groin) were limited in practice Friday and are also listed as questionable. DL Akiem Hicks (illness, knee), WR Marquise Goodwin (ankle), S Eddie Jackson (toe) and DL Bilal Nichols (back) practiced in full Friday and are listed as questionable as well. TE Jimmy Graham (rest) also practiced in full Friday but was not given an injury designation.

Footballguys view: Check back on Sunday, but as long as Mooney is playing, consider using him despite the questionable tag. He should be the top deep target for Justin Fields, who has great deep accuracy at times and should be able to benefit from the Browns safeties needing to play 11-on-11 football because of Fields threat as a runner.

  Bears | Andy Dalton to regain job when healthy    Wed Sep 22, 02:20 PM

Chicago Bears QB Andy Dalton (knee) will regain the starting quarterback job when he is healthy, according to head coach Matt Nagy.

Footballguys view: LOL. Players lose their job to injury all the time. If rookie first-round pick Justin Fields plays well as the starter, then there's no reason to go back to Dalton. Nagy using coach-speak while he still can. He's on the hot seat and needs to win to keep his job as the Bears head coach.

  Bears | Justin Fields to start    Wed Sep 22, 12:57 PM

Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields will start in place of QB Andy Dalton (knee) in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: The Fields era begins in Chicago, and Fantasy GMs can benefit from the change. Fields is smart, makes full-field reads and has the athleticism to keep plays alive with his feet while keeping his eyes downfield. His scrambling ability and arm talent can make him a QB1 option in deeper leagues. Fields is also the best passer WR Allen Robinson has ever had...which says a lot. With the rookie starting, we could see him lean on Robinson and feed him the ball often. There will be bumps, he is a rookie after all, but the fantasy community and Bears fans should be excited by this.

  Bears | Andy Dalton likely to miss multiple games?    Tue Sep 21, 02:33 PM

Chicago Bears QB Andy Dalton (knee) has yet to be ruled out for Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns, but NFL Network's Tom Pelissero is reporting Dalton is considered week-to-week with the knee injury he suffered in Week 2. If Dalton misses time, Justin Fields is expected to start in his absence.

Footballguys view: The Fields era needs to begin sooner rather than later. The Bears aren't going to go anywhere with a healthy Dalton as their starter. It seems like everyone knew that except for Matt Nagy and the Bears. Fields is a smart field general with rushing ability to boot. His presence could inject some life into this offense we didn't see with Dalton. Yes, the rookie will make some mistakes but we're generally excited about Fields future in the NFL.

  Bears | Andy Dalton receives good news    Mon Sep 20, 10:58 AM

Chicago Bears QB Andy Dalton (knee) suffered no damage to his anterior cruciate ligament or medial collateral ligament, according to a source. He'll have an MRI Monday, Sept. 20, and the early diagnosis is a bone bruise.

Footballguys view: It's good news for Dalton, but could it be bad news for the Bears? They have an opportunity to go with rookie first-round pick Justin Fields now that Dalton is banged up. We'll see if that's a choice they want to make.

  Bears | Andy Dalton may have avoided ACL injury    Sun Sep 19, 06:15 PM

Chicago Bears QB Andy Dalton's (knee) knee injury is not believed to be an injury to the anterior cruciate ligament, according to head coach Matt Nagy. Dalton is scheduled to undergo an MRI Monday, Sept. 20.

Footballguys view: Either way, Justin Fields will have to fail miserably to give this job back. Fields running ability was a welcome addition and the Browns should have trouble corralling him next week if Dalton can't go.

  Bears | Knee injury for Andy Dalton    Sun Sep 19, 02:10 PM

  Bears | Larry Borom to IR    Sat Sep 18, 05:26 PM

Chicago Bears OT Larry Borom (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Sept. 18.

  Bears | Chicago's Week 2 injury report    Fri Sep 17, 02:20 PM

Chicago Bears OL Larry Borom (ankle) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals. NT Eddie Goldman (knee) did not practice for a second straight day Friday, Sept. 17, and is listed as doubtful. OT Jason Peters (quad) was limited all week and is listed as questionable. LB Robert Quinn (back), WR Marquise Goodwin (quad), LB Joel Iyiegbuniwe (shoulder), WR Darnell Mooney (back) and WR Nsimba Webster (hamstring) practiced in full Friday and are also listed as questionable. TE Jimmy Graham (non-injury, rest) also practiced in full Friday and has been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: The Bears offensive line is going to be a problem again this week against the Bengals. Goldman's absence should help Joe Mixon stay hot. Mooney and Goodwin are likely to go, but we'll be watching to see if their injuries affect their performance.
