Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields remained a limited participant Thursday because of the left shoulder injury he suffered in last week’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

While there have been few clear-cut indicators to this point as to whether Fields will be active Sunday and able to start, the team may now be leaning toward giving Fields extra time to recover and regain strength in his shoulder.

Veteran Trevor Siemian is in line to start Sunday against the New York Jets if Fields doesn’t play.

Before Thursday’s practice at Halas Hall, Bears offensive coordinator Luke Getsy said he was not yet sure if Fields might be given the greenlight to play Sunday.

“If he’s ready to go, he’s ready to go,” Getsy said. “And if he’s not, he’s not.”

With the 3-8 Bears in last place in the NFC North and Fields showing promising signs over the last month that he has the potential to be the team’s long-term franchise quarterback, Getsy was asked whether the team’s most practical approach would be to give Fields this weekend off.

“That’s an above-my-pay-level question right there,” Getsy said. “Whatever they tell me, that’s what I rock and roll with.”

Fields revealed Wednesday that he suffered a separated left shoulder with a torn ligament when he landed awkwardly at the end of a run late in last week’s loss. The Bears probably would be wise to play things safe, putting Fields on the shelf for this weekend and reassessing his condition in Week 12. But the team has been patiently playing the “wait-and-see” game this week, clearing Fields to practice and evaluating how he looks and feels each day with an eye on giving him a chance to start against the Jets.

After Wednesday’s practice, Fields said coach Matt Eberflus was allowing him significant input in the decision.

“He said if I feel that I can play and if I feel that I can go out there and protect myself, then I’ll be able to go.” Fields said. “I’m just going to see how it feels each and every day and play it by ear.”

Siemian, who entered the league in 2015 as a seventh-round pick out of Northwestern, has made 29 career starts, the most recent in Week 12 of last season for the New Orleans Saints. Siemian has a 58.9 career completion percentage and an 81.2 passer rating with 41 touchdown passes and 27 interceptions.

“That game experience you can’t replace,” Getsy said. “That’s a good crutch we get to lean on.”

The Bears have one more practice Friday in Lake Forest before they have to officially declare Fields’ game status as questionable, doubtful or out.

Warriors Coach Steve Kerr Goes on Fiery Rant After Wild Ending

Getty Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr yells to his players during a game against the Utah Jazz.

The Golden State Warriors ended up being a part of history on Wednesday night against the Utah Jazz (and in the worst possible way). As relayed by ESPN Stats & Info, the Jazz held a record of 1-718 over the last 25 seasons when trailing by 4-plus points inside the final 10 seconds of the fourth quarter

Now, they’re 2-718, as the Dubs somehow allowed a 123-119 lead with just a handful of ticks remaining turn into a 124-123 loss.

As one might expect the turn of events that lead to the improbable feat left Warriors coach Steve Kerr feeling surly during his postgame presser.

“You watched it,” Kerr said almost combatively when asked about the game-deciding sequence. “You’re asking me what happened, you just watched the game. We didn’t take care of the ball, we turned it over and they took the game. And it’s a shame because our guys did a lot of great stuff. I thought to that point they really fought and earned the right to win the game and then we didn’t close it and you gotta close it.

“You gotta be rock solid with the ball. You gotta be smart defensively and we were neither of those things the last 13 seconds.”

With the game knotted at 119 and just under a minute left in regulation, second-year man Jonathan Kuminga entered clutch mode to give the Warriors an advantage.

First, he snaked his way into the paint for a cutting dunk to give Golden State a two-point advantage with 35.9 seconds remaining. Then, on the ensuing possession, he bodied up Jordan Clarkson, rejecting the Jazz guard on a floater attempt.

In the immediate aftermath of the swat, Clarkson was clearly upset over the contact on the play and Kuminga’s overall aggressiveness, and his retaliatory actions resulted in a flagrant-two call, a pair of free throws for the Warriors’ blue-chipper and possession for Kerr’s crew.

Alas, Kuminga only made 1-of-2 at the line, and the final 24.9 seconds played out as follows:

Klay Thompson caught a quick double-team after the inbounds, resulting in a takeaway steal by big man Kelly Olynyk. Coming back the other way, the Warriors were able to get a stop on a Simone Fontecchio three-point attempt. That prompted Utah to foul Jordan Poole, freezing the game clock at 13.3.

Poole then followed Kuminga’s lead by splitting the free throws, after which a driving Nickeil Alexander-Walker found Malik Beasley for a three-point bomb to cut the lead to one with just 6.9 seconds left. On the very next play, an Alexander-Walker steal from Poole (which was aided by Olynyk and Beasley) resulted in the game-winning dunk for Fontecchio.

Kuminga Was Still Sensational

While the result was not what the Warriors wanted — and his missed free throw was ill-timed — Kuminga’s overall play against the Jazz made a big impression on Coach Kerr.

“JK was tremendous tonight; fantastic,” raved Kerr after the loss. “He continued his recent play as far as defense and running the floor and really being solid, but he added the scoring, getting to the rim, posting up a couple times… Fantastic defensive play down the stretch you know when he blocked uh Clarkson’s shot and then got fouled.

“Yeah, JK was magnificent.”

The former No. 7 overall pick saw 30 minutes of action against the Jazz, scoring 24 points on 10-of-13 shooting (12 of which came during the final frame). He also added five rebounds, four assists, a steal and the aforementioned block. AS a result, the Dubs outscored Utah by eight when he was on the floor.
