The Chicago Bears have committed to Andy Dalton as their starting quarterback since they signed him back in March, but the situation is getting more complicated by the day.
Dalton suffered a knee injury during Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. An MRI on Monday reportedly confirmed that he suffered a bone bruise and not ACL or MCL damage, which is good news. However, it is possible that Dalton may not be able to play in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns.
That brings us to the obvious question: If Justin Fields starts for an injured Dalton and plays well, will the rookie keep the job? Bears head coach Matt Nagy was asked about that on Monday, and he avoided the question.
