Justin Fields has no injury designation ahead of Bears' game against Lions, while Khalil Herbert will be activated from injured reserve


(670 The Score) Bears quarterback Justin Fields practiced without restrictions this week and carries no injury designation ahead of Chicago's game at Detroit on Sunday, meaning he's cleared to start.

Fields has missed the last four games after suffering a dislocated right thumb during a game on Oct. 15. He returned to practice two weeks ago as a limited participant and worked in a full role this week.

The 24-year-old Fields has thrown for 1,201 yards, 11 touchdowns and six interceptions in six starts this season.

The Bears also plan to activate running back Khalil Herbert from injured reserve Saturday, paving the way for his return to action after a five-game absence due to a high ankle sprain.

Hebert has rushed for 272 yards in five games this season.

Bears linebacker Tremaine Edmunds (knee) returned to practice Friday as a limited participant and is questionable to play Sunday. Running back D'Onta Foreman (ankle) and linebacker Jack Sanborn (ankle/illness) are also questionable to play. Linebacker Noah Sewell (knee) was ruled out.

Veteran right guard Nate Davis was also listed without an injury designation and is expected to start Sunday after missing four games with a high ankle sprain.

The Bears (3-7) and Lions (7-2) will kick off at noon CT on Sunday from Ford Field.
