Dalton will remain starter if healthy, reportedly has bone bruise in knee
Dalton's status for the Week 3 contest against the Cleveland Browns is reportedly unclear.
Earlier Monday, head coach Matt Nagy declined multiple times to say whether Dalton would stay in the lineup, offering "scheme" as the reason for not revealing the information. A Bears official later told the media the veteran will remain the starter if he's able to play, adding that Nagy misunderstood the question.
Dalton left Sunday's matchup after scrambling and landing awkwardly on Chicago's sideline. He briefly returned to the game but headed to the locker room before halftime.
Nagy said postgame that the team was confident the 33-year-old Dalton hadn't suffered a torn ACL, but the Bears were still determining the extent of the injury.
Fields, the No. 11 pick in the draft, completed 6 of 13 passes for 60 yards and an interception while adding 31 yards on the ground.
