Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields was taken to the locker room after he was sacked by the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings, who rushed just three defenders on the play, were somehow able to get home on a botched pass blocking scheme by the Bears offensive line.
Fields could be forced to miss some time, but in the meantime he will be taken to the locker room for testing. His backup is rookie Tyson Bagent.
