(670 The Score) While Bears coach Matt Eberflus on Monday continued to keep quarterback Justin Fields’ health and playing status under wraps, safety Jaquan Brisker has seen enough out of Fields in practice recently to declare he’s ready to return to action.
“Yeah, yeah, Justin, he looks good,” Brisker said on the Bernstein & Holmes Show on Tuesday. “He definitely looks good. So we’re going to see where it goes, but I feel like Justin looks ready to go to me.”
Fields has been sidelined since he suffered a dislocated right thumb in a game on Oct. 15. The Bears are expected to provide clarity on Fields’ status Wednesday, when they’ll hold practice and the first injury report of the week is due.
Fields has completed 61.7% of his passes for 1,201 yards, 11 touchdowns and six interceptions in six games this season. Undrafted rookie quarterback Tyson Bagent has started the past four games for Chicago, which has gone 2-2 in that stretch. Bagent has completed 65.7% of his passes for 859 yards, three touchdowns and six interceptions in five games since stepping in for Fields.
