The night neither belonged to the Chicago Bears nor their star quarterback Justin Fields. The side lost to their opponent – the Washington Commanders – by 12-7 while Justin Fields re-aggravated injury on his left shoulder.
A pre-existing injury took a blow in the third quarter following a 40-yard touchdown pass to Dante Pettis. Justin Fields decided to lay low and rise with a couple of pushups. However, this has now raised a question about the limit to which he can bear the pain. According to a statement released by Justin Fields, the pain is hurting, but he has got a long weekend to recover as per the sports news.

The Commanders redeemed the loss to claim the winning edge in the final quarter with 9 on the board.
