“Justin Fields has those special qualities and that it factor that you’re looking for in a QB”

He’s a skilled dual-threat QB that can be a nightmare matchup for opposing defenses. That’s why head coach Matt Eberflus said Fields and select starters will not play in Saturday’s preseason game vs the Colts. Eberflus feels that they got plenty of “invaluable” reps in their joint practices with Indianapolis this week.
The Bears are playing it safe on Saturday, sitting QB Justin Fields among other select starters
Head coach Matt Eberflus said his staff has not discussed whether Fields will play in their final preseason game vs the Bills. The Bears open the season on September 10 at home vs their NFC North Rivals, the Packers. This season, Fields finally has a WR1 in D.J. Moore, who the team traded for this offseason. With Aaron Rodgers out of the NFC North, the division is wide open this season. Chicago wants to take advantage of that. Justin Fields will play a big part in the success they do or don’t have this season.
