Nov. 22 (UPI) -- Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields and Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb were among the top NFL players injured in Week 11.

Fields sustained a rib injury in the second half of the Bears loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday in Chicago. He was ruled out for the rest of the game. Veteran quarterback Andy Dalton replaced the rookie quarterback and could start in Week 12 if Fields is unable to play.


Sources told NFL Network and ESPN that Fields' X-rays were negative and did not reveal any fractures. Fields, as well as several other NFL players, will receive additional scans and tests Monday to determine the extent of their injuries.

Fields completed 4 of 11 passes for 79 yards and ran for 23 yards in the loss. Dalton completed 11 of 23 passes for 201 yards and two scores.

The Bears return to action after a short week of practice. They face the Detroit Lions at 12:30 p.m. EST Thursday in Detroit.

Lamb sustained a concussion at the end of the first half of the Cowboys' loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday in Kansas City, Mo. He sustained the head injury when he attempted to catch a touchdown pass from quarterback Dak Prescott with about 15 seconds left in the half.

The back of Lamb's head bounced off the ground when he landed after failing to make the catch. He did not return for the second half.
