Which QB is starting for the Bears? Game-time decision between Andy Dalton, Justin Fields

Bears fans got a bit more clarity about their starting quarterback against the Lions on Friday. Coach Matt Nagy eliminated at least one of the three options on the Chicago roster.

“I don’t foresee it being where Nick [Foles] would be the starter,” Nagy said to reporters in a press conference.

So, that means that either Justin Fields or Andy Dalton will start for the Bears.

Nagy wouldn’t definitively confirm which player would start. However, it sounds like Dalton would be the preferred choice if healthy.

“The starter is going to be a game-time decision,” Nagy said. “Both [were] out there this week for practices and you know Andy is getting better each day. We’re just going to see where he’s at on Sunday.”

Dalton is dealing with a bone bruise that kept him out of last week’s 26-6 loss to the Bears. He has logged limited outings at each of the team’s practices this week. He is officially listed as “questionable” for the game, so it’s unknown whether he’ll be healthy enough to play.

Meanwhile, Nagy has repeatedly stated that Fields is dealing with a hand injury, but he hasn’t appeared on the injury report this week. And when asked about it after his first start, he said “it’s fine.”

Nagy was also asked whether he had multiple game plans in place for the game depending on whether Dalton or Fields starts.

“I think we feel good right now with where we’re at with the game plans,” Nagy responded with an emphasis on the “s” in “game plans.”

That said, Nagy wouldn’t reveal who would call plays for the Bears against the Lions. He held the responsibilities to begin the season, but last season, he gave the play-calling responsibilities to offensive coordinator Bill Lazor from Weeks 10 to 16 last season after the Bears’ offense had some issues. Perhaps Lazor could again take over after Nagy’s offense posted one net passing yard last week.

The Bears will reveal their master plan soon enough, but until Sunday, Chicago fans will be left wondering what exactly the team is planning for Week 4.
