Thursday Night Football: Justin Fields officially inactive


Bears quarterback Justin Fields was listed as doubtful to play in Thursday Night Football, but coach Matt Eberflus ruled him out Wednesday. Fields, indeed, will miss a fifth consecutive game.

The Bears’ other inactives are receiver Velus Jones Jr., cornerback Terell Smith (illness), fullback Khari Blasingame (concussion), linebacker Tremaine Edmunds (knee), right guard Nate Davis (ankle) and defensive end Dominique Robinson.

The Panthers’ inactives are outside linebacker Brian Burns (concussion/elbow), wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. (ankle), wide receiver DJ Chark (elbow), cornerback C.J. Henderson (concussion), offensive guard Nash Jensen and tight end Stephen Sullivan (shoulder).
