Justin Fields exits Bears' loss to Ravens early with ribs injury
Justin Fields’ Week 11 ended early on the sideline.
The Chicago Bears rookie quarterback suffered a ribs injury in the second half of Sunday’s 16-13 loss to the Ravens and did not return. Andy Dalton entered the game in place of Fields and nearly led Chicago to an improbable win, but Devonta Freeman’s touchdown run with just seconds left in the game proved to be the difference for Baltimore.
Fields headed to the locker room after being monitored in the blue tent on the sideline. Fields completed 4 of 11 passes for 79 yards with no interceptions and compiled 23 rushing yards off four attempts at the time of his exit.
Dalton took over for the Bears down, 6-0, midway through the third quarter.
Dalton quickly made an impact on the Chicago offense, connecting with Darnell Mooney on his second pass of the game for a 60-yard touchdown. Dalton finished 11 of 22 for 202 yards with two touchdowns.
