Andy Dalton injury update: Justin Fields enters after Bears starter suffers non-contact injury vs. Bengals

Bears fans got an early taste of the Justin Fields experience in their Week 1 game against the Rams, but may be seeing more of the rookie going forward.

Fields, who went 2-for-2 with a touchdown in Week 1, entered the Bears’ Week 2 matchup against the Bengals after Chicago starter Andy Dalton sustained a non-contact injury on a 14-yard scramble for a first down early in the first quarter and then replaced Dalton again when he left the game for the second time.

Dalton returned to the game a few plays later, putting Fields back on the sidelines. But the saga continued when Dalton reaggravated his injury and left the game a second time with a questionable designation entering halftime.

Fields came out of the locker room at halftime and led the Bears’ drive out of the half with Dalton on the sideline. 

Dalton went 9-for-10 with 56 yards and a touchdown and added 25 yards on two carries before leaving and gave the Bears a 7-0 lead heading into halftime. Fields was 2-of-4 for 21 yards and picked up 6 yards on two carries.
