The Chicago Bears caught a major break for their Week 7 game against the Las Vegas Raiders. The news came as the Bears have doubts about several key player’s availability against the Raiders Sunday.
Per Thursday’s Bears injury report, Darnell Wright was downgraded from Wednesday’s injury report, as he did not practice due to his shoulder injury. Justin Fields did not practice on Thursday. It looks likely rookie Tyson Bagent will make his first career start at quarterback.

Hoyer is a familiar name to Bears fans. He was the Bears’ backup quarterback in 2016. Hoyer came in for the Raiders at quarterback following Garoppolo’s injury in Week 6.
It’s not exactly the most exciting matchup to watch this weekend for most NFL fans. But Bears fans will get to see what Bagent can bring to the offense in his first NFL start.
