The Rams aren't bad, but they're not as good as expectations for them.
While Justin Fields returned to practice for the Chicago Bears, Andy Dalton got the first-team snaps on Wednesday. Whether the prized rookie or veteran will start at quarterback Sunday when the NFC West-leading Arizona Cardinals visit Soldier Field remains to be seen. “With Andy being able to come out here and get these reps today, it’ll allow us to really continue each day to see, ‘Justin, where you at?’" coach Matt Nagy said.
Quarterback Kyler Murray and All-Pro receiver DeAndre Hopkins were both at practice for the Arizona Cardinals on Wednesday in a sign the team's top two playmakers might be ready to return after a three-game absence. Arizona (9-2) has the NFL's best record and has regained some relatively fresh legs after a long-awaited bye week. The Cardinals hope the Thanksgiving break will allow them to work with a healthier roster when they play at Chicago on Sunday.
