The Chicago Bears might must tempo up their plans for Justin Fields in any case as Andy Dalton was knocked out of Sunday’s sport with a knee hurt.

Dalton injured his knee on a scramble and tried to return once more as soon as extra into the sport however couldn’t cope with it. Fields was thrust into the sport and helped safe the victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, 20-17.

Fields was 6-for-13 with 60 passing yards and an interception. Fields had 10 carries for 31 yards. Bears coach Matt Nagy appeared to present Fields a vote of confidence after the sport.

“He’s probably further along than we thought he’d be at this point right now. So if that’s the case, then we feel good about it, and Justin has worked really, really hard to get to this point. Even today in that moment as a rookie, coming in in that situation, super calm, super cool. Even after the interception when that dropper, he dropped, and the zero look, made the play, he was very cool coming out there and knowing — to try to make a play,” Nagy recommended reporters.

“But he’s done that his whole career. That doesn’t fluster him. That’s a strength that he has. We’ll see where it goes. Justin has done what we’ve asked him to do and we feel about with him.”

NFL QUARTERBACKS DEAL WITH INJURIES IN WEEK 2 GAMES

The Bears might, in idea, put Nick Foles into the beginning place as he carried out a number of video video video games for them in 2020. He was 2-5 as a starter with 1,852 passing yards, 10 landing passes and eight interceptions. He made the assertion in August that he was “much better than the version that played in the Super Bowl.”

It doesn’t appear in all probability the Bears will begin Foles, and if Dalton can’t go in Week 3 he’ll most truly be the backup quarterback.

Fields acknowledged he has to play a bit elevated since he’s getting these prime alternate choices.

“I don’t think I’m pleased with how I played at all. You know, I think there’s a lot more in me that I have to show, and you know, I know that’s going to come with time. I know it’s not going to happen overnight,” Fields talked about.

“So, I’m just going to keep grinding and no matter what happens, I know I’m meant for this and I’m meant to be here. My path here has been crazy. When I was younger, I never thought I would be in this position. I’m here for a reason and I definitely think that I can play better, and I just think that this is the beginning. I’m definitely excited for the future and excited to get back to practice on Monday, Tuesday.”
