Tracking Bears quarterback Justin Fields during training-camp practices:

Simply put, Fields looked fine in practice Tuesday, and that’s a positive. If he continues stringing together practices with minimal mistakes, it’s promising for the Bears.

As he has throughout training camp, Fields again relied heavily on wide receiver DJ Moore, whether it was on intermediate-to-deep shots or a quick throw to the sideline on third down. Although the Bears talk about a balanced receiving attack that also includes Darnell Mooney and Chase Claypool, it’s obvious Fields predominantly looks for Moore.

Rookie cornerback Tyrique Stevenson intercepted a deep pass from Fields to Mooney, but Fields otherwise was sharp. He completed a 20-yard pass to Velus Jones in tight coverage during seven-on-seven work and had a nice sequence during the two-minute drill near the end of practice. He hit rookie Tyler Scott and Moore on back-to-back plays, then spiked the ball with less than a second left to set up a 50-yard field goal by Cairo Santos.
