Bears’ starting QB won’t play final preseason game

Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy told reporters Tuesday morning that long-time Cincinnati Bengals starting quarterback Andy Dalton will not play in the team's final preseason game in advance of his start in Week 1 of the regular season.

Nagy added that rookie quarterback and former Ohio State Buckeyes standout Justin Fields will start the preseason game and play about two quarters of it.

Last week, Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield essentially came to the defense of Dalton by suggesting on Instagram that story headlines with Dalton's "right now it's my time" quote are "typical clickbait BS reporting ... to try and stir the pot."

Dalton was asked about Chicago Bears' fans clamoring for Fields to start Week 1 for the Bears.
