Week 7 between the Las Vegas Raiders and Chicago Bears was supposed to be a showdown between Justin Fields and Jimmy Garoppolo. However, neither quarterback will be taking the field on Sunday.

Fields is dealing with a thumb injury, which could sideline him for multiple weeks. As for Garoppolo, he's reportedly dealing with a back issue. He's in enough discomfort that he too has been ruled out for this one.

With Fields out, the Bears will be starting youngster Tyson Bagent. The Raiders are yet to announce who will be leading the offense out onto the field, but it's looking like it's going to be either Brian Hoyer or Aidan O'Connell.

Head coach Josh McDaniels has a tough choice on his hands, as Hoyer has veteran experience, but a lot of people want to see what O'Connell, a rookie, is made of. We should find out soon enough who will get the starting nod.
