Justin Fields continues to impress his new club.

After Fields had another strong showing at Wednesday's practice, Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy couldn't hide his excitement about the rookie quarterback.

"He has that mentality to rip your heart out," Nagy said of the former Ohio State stud, according to Mark Grote of WSCR Radio.

The Bears drafted Fields 11th overall this year after parting ways with quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, who split starts with Nick Foles last season.

Fields' performances at practice have also generated positive reviews from multiple reporters.

"He's been awesome so far," second-year tight end Cole Kmet said, according to Kevin Powell of WGN Radio 720. "Great teammate. Great person. Comes in to work every day with his head down and ready to do the right thing."

Running back David Montgomery recently called Fields a "freakish athlete."

The Bears' quarterback depth chart also features Andy Dalton, who inked a one-year deal earlier this offseason. Nagy labeled the veteran Chicago's starter last month.
