Justin Fields apologizes for saying Bears fans are 'not putting in any work'

Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields clarified and apologized for a comment he made after the Bears' loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 2 when he said losing "hurts more in the locker room" than it does for Bears fans because "at the end of the day [the fans are] not putting in any work."

Fields explained that he was upset after the game and didn't want to talk to the media, so his words came off as mean-spirited. Fields assured the Chicago faithful that he only meant "work" as it pertained to what happened on the field.
