Bears quarterback Justin Fields wasn’t at 100 percent late in today’s loss to the Falcons.

Fields did not miss a play, but he said after the game that he was dealing with a left shoulder injury and hamstring cramps.

Fields said he suffered the non-throwing shoulder injury when he was tackled on the first play of the Bears’ last offensive drive. That drive ended with Fields throwing a game-sealing interception.

And Fields also said he had been dealing with hamstring cramps during the game. Those cramps did not stop him from running for 85 yards and a touchdown.

Fields said he will continue to be evaluated this week.

  1. Yes, it was probably the hamstring cramps and the shoulder issue on his non-throwing shoulder that had him miss wide open receivers or doink a pass off a defensive lineman’s helmet. Or his offensive lineman’s helmet…

    Not a good thing to have your starting running back with hamstring issues.

    The Fields excuses don’t take long to materialize.

    Keep your a__hole comments to yourself – the shoulder injury is a direct result of the dirty hit from Jarret. When is the NFL going to start calling these late hits on Fields? Same thing happened last year against Pittsburgh, he’s going to get hurt because of the Helen Keller referees that are assigned to Bears games.

  3. If Fields wants to operate as a RB he can be hit. His deficiencies are becoming obvious. No QB can last long with that style of play.

    He was sliding to give himself up when he was hit, he wasn’t operating as a running back bud, pay attention!

  5. The dangers of having a running quarterback. Sooner or later, it seems to happen to all of them.

  6. Ah, the needy Chicago fans are out in force. Running QB’s are RBs outside the pocket. Pay attention! He puts himself in harms way. Never gonna be a pocket passer.

    Needy my a$$, just tired of the ignorance shown by people who just want to rip him for no good reason. So what expansion team do you root for and who is the perfect being who QB’s that team? I don’t know if Fields is ultimately going to be the guy or not and you sure as hell don’t know. If they improve the team next year and he doesn’t improve then maybe the criticism will be justified but right now it’s not.
