Bears quarterback Justin Fields cleared to play, will start against Packers

CHICAGO, Wis. – Good news for Chicago may mean bad news for Green Bay after Bears coach Matt Nagy announced Wednesday that quarterback Justin Fields is cleared to play.

Fields had missed the last two games with cracked ribs but will make his return on Sunday when the Bears visit the Packers.

The former Ohio State quarterback has been a bright spot in an otherwise dismal season for the 4-8 Bears.

In 10 games, Fields has thrown for 1,361 yards, 4 touchdowns, and rushed for 311 yards.

He started in Chicago’s last game against the Packers, throwing for 174 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception.

The Bears will take on the Packers at Lambeau Field Sunday. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:20 p.m.
