Justin Fields won’t break the NFL’s single-season surging record for a quarterback.
Chicago Bears mentor Matt Eberflus said Wednesday that Fields revealed a sensitive hip on Monday morning and has been precluded for Week 18. A X-ray uncovered a strain, and the clinical staff managed him an off limits Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.
Eberflus added it’s anything but a drawn out injury.
Nathan Peterman will make the beginning against the Vikings.
The nonattendance will check the second game in 2022 that Fields has missed because of injury. He will end 64 yards short of breaking Lamar Jackson’s single-season surging record for a QB (1,206).
Fields demonstrated powerful this season regardless of suspect environmental factors, tossing for 2,242 yards and 17 scores with 11 captures and scrambling for 1,143 yards and eight scores in 15 games. The quarterback has been battered, enduring ruthless shots both all through the pocket. Entering Week 18, he drives the NFL with 55 sacks taken.
Regardless of Chicago being disposed of from the end of the season games for a really long time, Eberflus believed Fields should get whatever number reps as would be prudent as the QB proceeded with his turn of events. Be that as it may, with the most recent injury, the Bears will at last sit their establishment signal-guest.
At 3-13, the Bears as of now sit at the No. 2 generally speaking situation in the 2023 NFL Draft. A misfortune gets them into basically a main 2 spot. Chicago could jump into the No. 1 pick with a misfortune and a Houston Texans (2-13-1) prevail upon the Indianapolis Foals. Fields sitting additionally expands the possibilities of the Vikings moving to the No. 2 seed in the NFC with a triumph in the event that the San Francisco 49ers lose to the Arizona Cardinals.
