NFL Week Four early inactives: Andy Dalton officially out again for Bears

Mike Florio and Myles Simmons pick the biggest storylines to watch in Week 4, and debate if Sam Darnold will pass his first major test as the Carolina Panthers starting quarterback against the Dallas Cowboys.

Every week we bring you all the inactives from the 1 p.m. ET games in one post, constantly updated with the latest information.

When the Bears announced on Saturday that Justin Fields will be their starter for Sunday’s game against the Lions, they also downgraded Andy Dalton to doubtful with a knee injury. Dalton sat out last Sunday’s loss to the Browns because of the injury and he won’t be backing Fields up this weekend.

Dalton is on the team’s inactive list again this week. Nick Foles will serve as Fields’ backup.
