Bears remain committed to Andy Dalton as starting quarterback

Health will determine who starts at quarterback for the Bears.

(670 The Score) The Bears remain committed to veteran Andy Dalton as their starting quarterback, though health will dictate who's under center in their game against the Lions on Sunday.

Dalton (left knee) and rookie quarterback Justin Fields (right hand) will both practice Wednesday in some capacity, coach Matt Nagy said, though he didn't offer specifics. The team will issue its first injury report later Wednesday afternoon.

Dalton suffered a bone bruise in his left knee during the Bears' win over the Bengals on Sept. 19, with the rookie Fields taking over in the second quarter and finishing the game.

Fields made his first NFL start this past Sunday in Cleveland, struggling along with the Bears' offense in their 26-6 loss to the Browns. He was 6-of-20 for 68 yards while Chicago managed only 47 net yards of offense.
