Andy Dalton left the Bears’ win today after a play where he ran for a huge gain. Justin Fields came in and replaced him for roughly the rest of the game. Dalton suffered a leg injury and according to multiple sources is having an MRI to determine the extent of the damage.

As Pro Football Talk stated, the Bears don’t believe Dalton tore his ACL. Nevertheless, he was not at full strength after the big running play. He came back into the game after Fields took over. However after a few plays and a big hit, Dalton left the game for good and went straight to the locker room.

If Dalton is out, then Justin Fields will make his first career start when the Bears travel to Cleveland in Week Three. Matt Nagy refused to comment on which quarterback will start against the Browns until they have additional information. Considering that Dalton suffered a leg injury only a few hours ago and has yet to have the MRI, any conclusions from Matt Nagy would be hasty.

The Bears will have to make a quick decision after Andy Dalton suffered a leg injury today. Even if he’s healthy, the Bears may take a conservative approach to his recovery considering the offensive line struggles. We’ll update our readers as soon as more information on Dalton’s injury is released.
