Dalton hasn’t been in a game since Week 5, when he took part in just one match finish against the Raiders. Fields was officially named the Bears’ starter in Week 3 after a lot of pre-season drama in the Bears organization about who would take the starting spot.
In Dalton’s first return to the field on Sunday, he threw a 60-yard pass to Darnell Mooney to make a touchdown. This is the first encounter for either team of the game.

There is no official statement on Fields’ injury and what time his return will be. The answers will come after his assessment.
