But now there’s a possibility neither of the second-year signal callers starts on Sunday.
Justin Fields reportedly suffered a dislocated left shoulder in Chicago's Week 11 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. While head coach Matt Eberflus described Fields as “day-to-day,” he didn’t rule out the quarterback being shut down.
Zach Wilson, on the other hand, isn’t injured but could get benched. Head coach Robert Saleh left the door open for a potential quarterback change after the Jets tallied only two yards of second-half offense in their Week 11 loss to the New England Patriots. Wilson then reportedly irked some teammates with his attitude following the loss.
So when the 3-8 Bears meet the 6-4 Jets, it could be a battle of the backups between Chicago's Trevor Siemian and New York's Joe Flacco or Mike White.
