Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields‘ first NFL start ended with a loss and it may have ended with an injury as well.

Head coach Matt Nagy told reporters after the 26-6 loss to the Browns that Fields may have dinged up his hand on the final play of the game. He didn’t elaborate on what might have happened, but there should be more word in the coming hours about the rookie’s condition.

Fields was 6-of-20 for 68 yards through the air on Sunday and he added 12 yards on three rushing attempts. The Bears only had 47 net yards of offense and Nagy blamed himself for the unit’s shortcomings.

“I obviously as a head coach did not do a good enough job of getting this offense ready. . . It starts with me. It ends with me,” Nagy said, via Chris Emma of 670 The Score.

Andy Dalton‘s outlook for Week Four is uncertain because of a knee injury. If he and Fields can’t go, Nagy will be trying to get the offense ready for Nick Foles‘ first start of the season.

  1. And with that, he officially surpasses Marc Trestman as the most hated Bears head coach in Chicago history. The game was long ago lost, why not just have the kid hand off?

  2. Better yet, why not let him learn until you have a line to protect him. Ironic this was against the Browns. They used to be the experts at ruining quarterbacks.

  3. First Nagy ruined this kid’s psyche with that pathetic game plan & play calling, and then he possibly ruins the kid’s hand by having him continue to throw it….Nagy needs to be terminated along with Ryan Pace for hiring him and NEVER prioritizing offensive line.

  4. *Sigh* I was really hoping Nagy wouldn’t throw this boy in and overcomplicate things. I was really hoping that Fields wouldn’t be ruined in the way Trubisky was by this idiot Nagy. Guess I was wrong on both counts…

  5. I’m pretty disgusted. That was terrible all the way around. I really hope Fields doesn’t catch on to what the coach is trying to teach,

  6. the worst part of this stinker is that the stands will still be full at the next Bears home game. The owners don’t care.

  7. DID KCs offense suffer any setbacks after Nagy left ? No of course not because he wasn’t the offensive genius !
