Speaking to the media on Monday, Bears HC' Matt Eberflus noted that the team will evaluate the health of their players before making any decisions towards who will play in Week 18. (Dan Wiederer on Twitter)
Fields was specifically mentioned, and at this point it would not be a surprise if their young quarterback got the final week of the season off. Fields has been banged up in recent weeks, and Chicago has no real incentive to start him in a meaningless game. Nathan Peterman would likely be in line to get the start against the Vikings if Fields is ultimately ruled out.
