Chicago Bears emerged victorious over the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night, even without starting quarterback Justin Fields, who was out yet again with a dislocated right thumb. Tyson Bagent, the undrafted rookie from Division II Shepherd, led the Bears to a 16-13 win, marking his second victory in four starts. With 162 passing yards and no interceptions, Bagent made a strong comeback after throwing five interceptions in his previous two games. The Bears are optimistic about Fields’ return for their upcoming game against Detroit on Nov. 19.
Meanwhile, the Carolina Panthers played without their sack leader, Brian Burns, who was out due to a concussion, as they gear up to host the Dallas Cowboys on Nov. 19.
Football fans can also expect to see various wide receivers back in action soon. While the Cincinnati Bengals will be without Tee Higgins, Ja’Marr Chase is expected to make a comeback. For the San Francisco 49ers, Deebo Samuel is set to return, potentially boosting their underperforming offense. However, it came as a surprise when Stefon Diggs showed up on the Buffalo Bills’ injury report, causing some concern for his availability.
Injury updates from NFL Nation reporters:
– Cincinnati Bengals: Back; hamstring. Chase is questionable versus the Houston Texans but his coach is optimistic, while Higgins is out.
– Buffalo Bills: Diggs was added to the injury report with a back issue on Friday
– San Francisco 49ers: Samuel is set to return; Williams is listed as questionable.
– Baltimore Ravens: Mitchell is trending toward playing, but he won’t likely be at full strength due to a hamstring issue.
The list of injury disclosures goes on and on. Despite the challenges and uncertainties, NFL teams continue to gear up and strategize for their upcoming games. With an assortment of impactful players returning from injuries and battles to overcome, the season still holds a plethora of excitement and surprises in store.
