Report: Bears QB Justin Fields to have MRI on shoulder

Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields will have an MRI on his left shoulder Monday, NFL Network reported.

He sustained the injury to his non-throwing shoulder on Sunday but played every snap in a 27-24 loss at Atlanta.

“The pain right now is pretty bad,” Fields said after the game.

Fields completed 14 of 21 passes for 153 yards with one touchdown and one interception and rushed 18 times for 85 yards and a score against the Falcons.

In his second NFL season, the 23-year-old Fields has thrown for 1,642 yards and 13 touchdowns with eight interceptions. He has run for 834 yards and seven scores in 11 starts for the Bears (3-8).

Chicago visits the New York Jets (6-4) on Sunday before hosting the Packers on Dec. 4, followed by their bye week.

Trevor Siemian, 30, is the No. 2 quarterback for the Bears. He has completed the only pass he attempted this season, a five-yarder at Dallas on Oct. 30.

Kirk Cousins, Justin Jefferson lead Vikings past Bears

Kirk Cousins set a franchise record with 17 straight completions to start Sunday’s game and scored the winning touchdown in the Minnesota Vikings’ 29-22 victory over the Chicago Bears in Minneapolis.

Cousins snuck over the goal line from a yard out with 2:27 remaining to enable Minnesota to improve to 4-1 and take sole possession of first place in the NFC North.

Cousins finished 32 of 41 for 296 yards, one touchdown and an interception. Justin Jefferson caught a career-high 12 passes for 154 yards.

Cameron Dantzler secured the win for the Vikings by recovering a fumble from Ihmir Smith-Marsette at their 39-yard-line with 1:01 left.

Justin Fields completed 15 of 21 passes for 208 yards with a touchdown for Chicago, which fell to 2-3.

Minnesota controlled most of the first half behind an offense that rolled to touchdowns on its first three possessions.

The Vikings drove 86 yards on the game’s opening march, Cousins hitting all seven passes for 68 yards. Dalvin Cook finished the drive with a 1-yard run at the 8:15 mark.

After Cairo Santos converted a 50-yard field goal on Chicago’s first possession, Minnesota made it 14-3 on the first play of the second quarter on a 5-yard run by Cook.

The margin grew to 21-3 with 7:20 left in the half when Cousins flipped a 1-yard touchdown pass to Jalen Reagor. However, the Bears finally found the end zone with 1:08 left in the first half on a 9-yard scoring jaunt by David Montgomery.
