Fields left the team’s Week 11 loss to the Ravens after suffering cracked ribs, and Andy Dalton has started the last two games, but will return to his role as Fields’ backup.

Fields returned to the practice field in a limited basis last week, but was held out of Sunday’s game, a 33-22 loss to the Cardinals.

The Bears are 2-6 in Fields’ eight starts so far. He has completed 115 of 198 pass attempts in 10 games overall, throwing for 1,361 yards, four touchdowns, and eight interceptions. He’s also rushed for 311 yards on 56 attempts, including two touchdowns.
