Bears QB Justin Fields remains limited in practice


Bears quarterback Justin Fields was limited in practice Thursday, leaving his status to start Sunday’s game against the Jets very much in doubt.

Fields separated his left shoulder when he landed awkwardly after a fourth quarter in Sunday’s 27-24 loss to the Falcons on Sunday. The Bears held a walk-through on Wednesday, but estimated he would have been limited if it had been a full practice.

Fields said Wednesday that he was in considerable pain. That’s been the case all week — although Fields could have an anesthetic injection an hour or so before kickoff Sunday that would make his shoulder feel better.

Two Bears starters were out Thursday with concussions: safety Jaquan Brisker and cornerback Kyler Gordon. The senior was taken out of the game by independent concussion spotters twice Sunday before he was allowed to return and finish the game. Gordon didn’t finish the game.

Linebacker Sterling Weatherford is also in the concussion protocol.

Guard Teven Jenkins, who has a hip injury, practiced in full for the second straight day.
