Justin Fields Won't Play In Finale, Ending Shot At Rushing Record

Jan 5, 2023 8:41 AM

The Chicago Bears have ruled out Justin Fields for Sunday's season finale against the Minnesota Vikings due to a hip injury.

Nathan Peterman will start for the Bears.

Fields ends his second professional season 64 yards shy of setting the single-season quarterback rushing record, which Lamar Jackson reached during the 2019 season (1,206 yards). 

He rushed for 132 yards on 10 attempts against the Lions, including 105 yards in the first quarter, the most by a quarterback in a quarter over the last 45 seasons.

Matt Eberflus said Wednesday that Fields complained of hip soreness Monday and was sent to get an MRI, which revealed the quarterback suffered a strain.

Travis Kelce Reaches 10,000 Yards Faster Than Any Other TE

Dec 12, 2022 9:14 AM

Travis Kelce became the fifth tight end in NFL history to surpass 10,000 receiving yards in the Kansas City Chiefs' 34-28 win over the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday.

Kelce joins Tony Gonzalez, Shannon Sharpe, Antonio Gates and Jason Witten in the elite group.

None of the other four players reached 10,000 yards faster than Kelce. Sunday was the 140th game of Kelce's career and the previous record belonged to Gonzalez, who reached 10,000 yards in his 177th game.

"Honestly right now, the win means more than any of those stats," Kelce said. "Everybody's kind of been talking about me getting those stats at some point this year, so I mean, it was on everybody's radar. But to come up here and get a win and be a part of the crowd that is the 10,000 crew -- Gates, Witten, Gonzalez, who am I forgetting there ... Shannon Sharpe, man, the Bronco himself, the main guy I was chasing today -- that's unbelievable company to be in, and I've been very fortunate that I've had the coaches and the players around me to be able to have this much success in the NFL that I've had."

I was like 23 at the time, I was like, that's one of the coolest things I've ever heard. And here I am 37 and still remember him saying that to me. Any time you're mentioned in the same breath as Dan, it's pretty cool, and I'm proud of that."
