Dalton suffered from a knee injury to Justin Fields for the Chicago Bears after starting QB.
Justin Fields may get a chance sooner than many anticipated to lead the Chicago Bears.
In the first quarter of Sunday’s 20-17 victory against the Cincinnati Bengals, Andy Dalton was a rookie quarterback after suffering a knee injury and did not return.
Dalton was struck as Cincinnati Bengals’ Vonn Bell security pushed him out of bounds in a 14-yard scrap. Then he came back to the dressing room for the next row.
Before departing, Dalton was 10-of-11 for 67 yards and a score.
Fields completed 6 of 13 60-yard attempts but threw Bengal linebacker Logan Wilson a fourth-quarter interception which allowed Cincinnati to reduce the deficit to three percentage points in the dying minutes.
On 10 carries, he gained 31 running yards.
The Bears traded in the last selection in the NFL draft for the No. 11 selection field, and their outstanding performance in the pre-season caused the enthusiasm of the Ohio State product from the fan base. But Coach Matt Nagy was keen on starting Dalton, an eleven-year-old club veteran who joined alongside Mitchell Trubisky this off-season.
