Justin Fields is 'fine' after hand injury, while Bears aren't committing to starting quarterback moving forward

Fields underwent precautionary X-rays on his right throwing hand.

CLEVELAND (670 The Score) -- The X-rays on Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields right throwing hand came back "fine," he said after he was sacked nine times in a 26-6 loss to the Browns on Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium.

Following an abysmal performance in which the Bears posted 47 net yards of offense, coach Matt Nagy didn't commit to a starting quarterback moving forward. It's a decision that will be impacted by the health of his quarterbacks this week.

Veteran quarterback Andy Dalton was held out Sunday while recovering from a bone bruise in his left knee, which could keep him sidelined for another week. Fields, the No. 11 overall pick in the NFL Draft, struggled in his first career start while the Bears' offensive line failed to protect him.

Fields was 6-of-20 for 68 yards. The Bears had one net passing yard in their loss. Chicago's 47 total yards marked the franchise's second-fewest dating back to 1970.

The Bears' fewest yards in a game in that span came on Nov. 22, 1981, when they posted 24 yards in a loss to the Lions at Soldier Field.

The Bears will issue their next injury report Wednesday. They host the Lions next Sunday at Soldier Field.
