The Bears will be taking their decision about who to start at quarterback into the weekend.

Andy Dalton has been listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Lions due to the knee injury that sidelined him for Week Three’s loss to the Browns. Dalton was a limited participant in practice all week.

Justin Fields was a full participant in practice all week after dinging his thumb during the Cleveland game. He does not have an injury designation for Sunday.

Bears head coach Matt Nagy said earlier this week that Dalton remains the team’s No. 1 quarterback when healthy and said on Friday that it will be a game-time decision about whether he’s healthy enough to fill that role this weekend.

Linebacker Khalil Mack (foot) is also listed as questionable after a limited practice Friday. He didn’t work on Wednesday or Thursday. Safety Tashaun Gipson (hamstring) didn’t practice all week and is listed as doubtful.

  1. Pathetic from Nagy to not announce Fields is starting since everyone already knows this. Just digging his own grave at this point.

  2. Nagy sure knows how to keep the opposing defense on their toes. At least until they take the field.

  3. Aren’t we as fans getting tired of Nagy’s B.S.. Why can’t we get a guy who tells the truth for once. He and Pace seem to worry their public personas when they should be consentrating on putting a good product on the field.

  4. Well this is fine. I mean the game plan doesn’t change at all since Dalton and Foles have similar skill sets as quarterbacks. Worked so well last week.

    Fire Nagy yesterday please.

  5. Given that Nagy seems to be driven by a desire to be the smartest guy in the room, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if Foles starts Sunday… and with that O-Line survives, oh, about six or seven plays.

  6. I don’t get why fans get so up in arms if a head coach waits to announce the starting QB due to injury concerns. Why does he owe anyone advanced notice when he should be preparing for the opponent?

  7. Just maybe, none of he QB’s want to play behind that offensive line. Perhaps Pace or Nagy should start.

  8. Fire this man and hire a real coach. Fields can be the best player in football with a decent coach.

  9. maybe have some of the DL play offensive tackle .. can’t be any worse than who is currently there. Peters was so slow off the line i thought he was checking is phone during the snap.

  10. If there is any “getting healthy” to be done by this Bears team, it better be this week against my junior varsity Lions. If they get handled by Detroit’s roster of kids on Sunday, it truly is Armageddon in the Windy City.

  11. The QB is not the issue. The Coach calling the ball is the main problem. The finest tool can be used badly by a poor craftsman. Nagy acts, and sounds like a person not right for the task before him. To make the Bears a winner and teach and coach the next QB of promise that hopefully becomes the long term answer for Chicago.
    But he doesn’t do that. He seems more eager to spin the bad performances of the team, and deflect criticism of the Offense, QBs and record. Might have been a very good OC, but he reminds me of Freddie Kitchen at Cleveland more than any other competent HC. The Bears won’t be better, nor their path set towards success until Nagy Is walking out the building with a cardboard box in his arms holding the contents of his desk

  12. How can you prepare your game plan when it’s a game time decision. Ohhhhh its Nagy……… he has no game plan

  13. Bears need to keep right on skidding off the tracks so this Ryan Pace & Matt Nagy clown show can pack up & finally roll out of Chi-town..
