Initially, it is good news. The Bears have a quick turnaround to prepare for the Thanksgiving morning game against the Lions. Will Justin Fields be ready on such a short week?
The way the Bears’ bye-week turned into an injury infestation, this is concerning. Can the rookie recover from and potentially play through the bruised ribs? Maybe. The better question is, should he? Andy Dalton could very well be the starter en route to a second consecutive year with a six-game losing streak and the winless Lions’ first victory.
