Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields has been out since Week 11, after suffering a rib injury against the Ravens. Ahead of a rivalry game against the Packers on Sunday, coach Matt Nagy is making no promises about Fields's return to the gridiron.

Fields has missed the team's last two games: a 16–14 win over the Lions and a 33–22 loss to the Cardinals. He was playing some of his best football of the year in the weeks leading up to the injury. On the season, Fields has completed 58.1% of his throws for 1,361 yards, four touchdowns and eight interceptions. He has also added 311 yards and two scores on the ground.

“We're never going to put him at risk medically,” Nagy said. “Never.”
