Reports: Bears QB Justin Fields has dislocated thumb

Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields dislocated his right thumb during Sunday’s 19-13 loss to the visiting Minnesota Vikings, according to multiple media reports.

X-rays came back negative, but Fields is scheduled to have an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of the injury.

Fields wasn’t around to see the end of the Vikings’ win over the Bears. He left the game in the second half and was ruled out with what the team said was a right hand injury.

Fields first went to the medical tent on the sideline early in the third quarter before heading to the locker room. He was holding his right throwing hand as he left the field.

Fields injured his hand while being taken to the ground as he was attempting to flip the ball. His own body weight landed on his hand after cutting the ball loose.

Backup quarterback Tyson Bagent took over for Fields and fumbled on his first NFL drive, with the Vikings returning it for a touchdown. Bagent later scored on a 1-yard sneak, but the undrafted rookie out of Division II Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, W.Va., was intercepted to end Chicago’s final drive.

Fields completed six of 10 passes for 58 yards and threw one interception before leaving the game. He also rushed eight times for 46 yards.

In six games this season, Fields has completed 61.7 percent of his passes for 1,201 yards, 11 touchdowns and six interceptions. He has also rushed for 237 yards and a score.
