He’s having tests today to determine the severity of his sprains suffered yesterday, Rapoport went on to say. Eason had to finish the game for the Colts and would be the assumed starter in Week 3 if Wentz is unable to play.
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.
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.
“Obviously, not an ideal situation,” Baker Mayfield said, via Cleveland.com. “Trying to force him back inside. I think he realized it was me standing right there so he put his head down and ran right after me. It kind of popped in and out, but I will be good. Nothing too serious.”
Mayfield tried to make a tackle after being intercepted by Texans safety Justin Reid and went to the locker room with members of the training staff after the play to have his left shoulder evaluated. Mayfield wasn’t inside for long and returned to the sideline in time to take the field for the next offensive series. Mayfield should be good to go for Week 3, but it's certainly worth monitoring.
