Matt Nagy Reveals Exciting Plan for Justin Fields and Andy Dalton in First Preseason Game
The Chicago Bears kick off their preseason schedule on Saturday against the Miami Dolphins, and many are excited to see what rookie quarterback Justin Fields can do. The first-year signal-caller could see plenty of time in these warmup games in relief of veteran Andy Dalton.
Head coach Matt Nagy has revealed the plan for his top two QBs heading into their matchup against the Dolphins.
Nagy has said ahead of the preseason opener that Dalton will only play a few snaps, and Fields will take over directly after him. There's potential for the rookie to play "into the fourth quarter," which is exciting to hear.
Nagy's stance on limiting Dalton's playing time in preseason seems to indicate his confidence in the vet as his Week 1 starter. That may be disappointing for fans hoping to see the rookie start right out of the gate, but it does clear the way for an extended look at Fields in preseason.
Fields' play in the lead up the regular season will be a huge storyline that follows the Bears heading into the 2021 campaign. He currently has the second-best odds to win Offensive Rookie of the Year at +550, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
