LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields indicated he is being given too much information by the coaching staff and thinking too much as a result rather than trusting his instincts. Fields says he played “kind of robotic” in last week’s loss at Tampa Bay. And one reason “could be coaching.” Fields’ comments come after two discouraging losses to start a season in which the Bears hope to show signs of improvement. He struggled against Green Bay at Soldier Field and didn’t fare any better against the Buccaneers. Fields was sacked six times and threw two late interceptions. The Bears have called few designed runs for him after he nearly set the NFL’s single-season rushing record for a quarterback last season.
