Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy was forced to change quarterback on Sunday after an injury to Andy Dalton ruled him out for the rest of the contest against the Cincinnati Bengals. Fortunately, the team has rookie QB Justin Fields.

While Fields did not score a touchdown for the Bears, Nagy saw enough to boost his confidence that the rookie can take over should Dalton miss time.

The 33-year-old QB suffered a knee injury in the second quarter and was brought out immediately after. He was able to return and play, but the team’s medical staff eventually ruled him out before the end of the first half, paving the way for Fields to take on the QB duty.

“I thought he did a heck of a job. There’s a lot of stuff he will learn from watching the tape,” Nagy said of Fields, per Mark Grote of The Score.
