The Chicago Bears could be without Justin Fields for a while
According to Kevin Fishbain with The Athletic, it is unclear when Fields will play again after dislocating his thumb. Fields is doubtful to play against the Raiders.
Bears head coach Matt Eberflus said QB Justin Fields dislocated his thumb and "there's no timetable right now. It's really going to come down to grip strength."
Eberflus said it's "doubtful" that Fields plays this week.

Per Brad Biggs with the Chicago Tribune, Eberflus said the Bears would wait until the end of the week to determine if he needs surgery. The Bears are hoping to avoid surgery, as that would mean Fields would be out for weeks.
Matt Eberflus said by the end of the week the #Bears should know if Justin Fields will require surgery. "There is natural swelling" and they want to give it time to see where it goes. "It doesn't look like it's a negative thing. We'll see where it is."
