After announcing Nathan Peterman as their starting QB replacement for Trevor Siemian today, the Bears are now saying their starting QB is a game-time decision - minutes before the game.
Odds Across Sportsbooks
Nathan Peterman now will be the Bears starting QB today. Trevor Siemian, who was supposed to start, hurt his oblique during warmups and now will serve as the No. 2 to Peterman. David Montgomery will be the Bears' emergency QB.

Darrynton Evans is RB2 today. He just gained 33 yards on a checkdown.

His 79 yards on 14 carries were his second-most of the season. Add three catches for 34 yards, and Montgomery brought his career total to 4,550 scrimmage yards, passing tight end Mike Ditka for 11th on the Bears’ all-time list.Darrynton inDarrynton Evans, who’d played only two offensive snaps this season, replaced a healthy Trestan Ebner as the Bears’ backup running back. He carried nine times for 34 yards and caught a career-long 33-yard pass in the first quarter.With the performance, the former third-round pick by the Titans out of Appalachian State earned himself more playing time until Khalil Herbert returns.“It was great for him to get that opportunity,” head coach Matt Eberflus. “I thought he performed well.”SlumpThe Bears have lost eight of their last nine games and are in the midst of a five-game losing streak. They’re at risk of surpassing their longest slide in franchise history — eight games. Their remaining games are against the Packers, Eagles, Bills, Lions and Vikings.

Mike White - Garrett Wilson. Touchdown #Jets. White was 6 of 7 for 69 yards and a touchdown on the scoring drive. QB rating of 147.3.
Sauce Gardner said the defense was talking on the sideline during the first drive about how it was the first time they were "able to chill a little bit longer" at the beginning of a game since the offense was moving. #Jets
#Jets passing touchdown leaders in 2022 - Joe Flacco: 5 TDs (3 games) - Zach Wilson: 4 TDs (7 games) - Mike White: 2 TDS (26 minutes)
Jets' RB Michael Carter is doubtful to return today due to an ankle injury.
Actives/inactives: -- #Jets RB James Robinson is inactive, a healthy scratch. -- #Ravens RB Gus Edwards is up, while S Kyle Hamilton is down. -- #Commanders TE Logan Thomas is active.
Robert Saleh's willingness to make a quarterback change at 6-4 is a major part of his COY candidacy, especially if the #Jets make the playoffs. I'm not sure how many have the you-know-what to bench a player the team drafted second overall. But you see how his team responded
Bryce Huff untouched. Sacks Siemian for a 7-yard loss. That's 3.5 sacks for Huff this year — extending his career high. He's a very good football player. #Jets
This one was over awhile ago, but C.J. Mosley puts the nail in the coffin with a diving interception. The #Jets are five minutes from a 7-4 record. Two big — big — ones coming up against Vikings, Bills.
Rookie RB Zonovan Knight is active with Robinson out.
I wouldn't expect Max Mitchell to start today, per sources. He'll be insurance & play on field goal, but not starting yet #Jets
John Franklin-Myers had a pretty legitimate toe injury earlier this year. He's healthy now & you can see it. Really coming on as of late. He's up to 4.5 sacks on the year. #Jets
T Cedric Ogbuehi (groin) is questionable to return #CHIvsNYJ
Greg Zuerlein's 57-yard FG looked like it might have been good from 85. Holy smokes.
Former Jets QB Ken O'Brien turns 62 today. Current safety Lamarcus Joyner turns 32.
If you watched Sunday’s game between the Jets and the Chicago Bears and felt unusual about seeing a quarterback throw three touchdown passes in a game, you’d be right.
Mike White threw three touchdown passes in the 31-10 win over the Bears. That was only the second time season a Jets quarterback recorded a three-touchdown day through the air. And as you might expect or recall, that other quarterback is not Zach Wilson. It was Joe Flacco’s four-touchdown game against the Browns in Week 2.
Sunday was also the second time White threw three touchdown passes in a game, also doing so in the Jets’ 34-31 upset win over the Bengals in Week 8 of the 2021 season. That just happens to be two more such games than one Zach Wilson
