If Fields can't make it, the Bears will start Trevor Siemian.
"Trevor is a very smart individual; a very good passer, has a great grasp of the offense," Eberflus said. "He's been here since Day 1. High functional intelligence, so we're excited about that."
In the preseason, Siemian completed 20 of 36 passes for 191 yards with three touchdowns and zero interceptions.
