According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, when the Bears did manual tests on Dalton’s knee, it looked to be “strong and sound.” Following Sunday’s game, head coach Matt Nagy said he was “pretty sure” Dalton didn’t suffer a serious ACL injury.
Re0lated players: Justin Fields
Rapoport said Dalton is believed to have a bone bruise in his knee, which would likely sideline him for at least Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns. The Bears will know more when they run more tests Monday, the story said. It looks like Fields could get the start in Week 3. Rapoport has added Fields has looked very good in practice and the Bears would feel comfortable starting him at QB. It's quite possible Fields takes over from here out.
