Second-year Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields was impressive in his preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks on Friday night, even if he only played one series. However, the NFL world is already worried about his long-term health due to the play of his offensive line.

Fields played in only one series in Friday night’s game, but he still put up nice numbers and looked impressive. The young Bears quarterback finished the night 5-for-7 and passed for 39 yards.

While the offense looked strong and Fields had a solid performance, the Chicago Bears’ offensive line did not play well. Fields had to handle pressure nearly every time he dropped back to pass during his brief time in the game.

The NFL world took notice of the Bears’ lackluster offensive line play, praising Fields for his ability to succeed despite the pass rush while expressing concern for Fields’ well-being if this trend continues all season.

While there’s still plenty of time to make adjustments before the season starts in September, it’s not a good sign that fans are already this concerned about the offensive line.

To Fields’ credit, however, he did not take a single sack in Friday’s game despite feeling pressure on nearly every drop back. He’ll have to continue that effort all season if the Bears are going to have success on offense.
