Quarterback Justin Fields told reporters his right throwing hand is "fine" after undergoing precautionary X-rays. He was sacked nine times in his first career start, as Chicago's offensive line was essentially invisible.
The Bears will hope to avoid any long-term injuries to the 22-year-old as he develops into a potential franchise quarterback. The Ohio State product was selected No. 11 overall in the 2021 NFL draft after a college career that saw him earn Heisman Trophy votes in each of the past two years.
Fields tallied 63 passing touchdowns and 15 rushing touchdowns during his two seasons with the Buckeyes.
Injuries could be a concern if they slow his development, although the Bears should be happy with their depth at the position.
