Now, with the team in the middle of minicamp, Fields continues to perform well. Reports out of practice on Wednesday indicated the former Ohio State star had a strong showing.
Afterwards, Nagy said that Fields has displayed a “rip your heart out” mentality on the field.

It should be no surprise that Nagy is commending Fields’ competitive fire. You’re talking about a kid who played through a painful rib injury in the College Football Playoff, and before that, was one of the leading voices arguing for the return of college football last fall.
There is a long way to go before Fields plays in a regular season game for the Bears, and when the season begins, he’ll likely be the team’s No. 2 quarterback. It is still too early to say how his career will turn out.
But one thing we feel comfortable predicting is that if he’s ultimately unsuccessful in the NFL, it won’t be for a lack of effort and focus.
