Thankfully for the Bears, Fields returned to the game without missing much time. It sounds like there’s no reason to worry about his status for this week either.
On Wednesday, Fields told reporters he will be “good to go” by Sunday, when the Bears take on the Green Bay Packers in an early battle for NFC North supremacy.
Fields’ declaration comes one day after NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported the first-year signal caller was expected to be ready for Green Bay.
Justin Fields asked about how his knee is doing: “I’ll be good by Sunday.” Did add he’s “feeling discomfort all around,” but doesn’t sound like anything that would keep him off the field. #Bears @cbschicago pic.twitter.com/0oICmsZYIs
