NFL coaches like to say they need to make a “game-time decision” on injured players,
but the Bears took that to new lengths Sunday.
It was unclear who would start at quarterback for Chicago until Trevor Siemian jogged onto the field when the Bears got the ball.
There was speculation all week that starter Justin Fields would not play due to a separated left shoulder.
The Bears officially ruled him out about 90 minutes before kickoff.
The expectation then was that Siemian would start,
but then reports came out that Siemian injured an oblique muscle during pregame warm-
-ups and Nathan Peterman would start. Then, the Bears said it would be decided at kickoff.
Finally, it was Siemian. The Jets said the quarterback dance did not have any effect on them.
