With Justin Fields and Trevor Siemian both injured, the Bears signed quarterback Tim Boyle off the Lions' practice squad. Eberflus said it was a precaution with both Fields and Siemian injured. Fields will be limited on Wednesday while Siemian won't practice. Both are both considered day to day. Boyle has experience working with offensive coordinator Luke Getsy in Green Bay, so he has an understanding of this system.
