Bears HC Matt Nagy said Monday that he'll be "smart" with his starters in Sunday's finale against the Vikings. Chicago still has a shot at the #2 seed -- but only if the Rams lose to the 49ers. If the Rams are up big in the 2nd half, guys like QB Mitchell Trubisky, RBs Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen, WR Allen Robinson and TE Trey Burton could get pulled.
Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday night’s showdown with the Rams. That’s a plus matchup, but Trubisky also brings a good deal of risk coming off that throwing-shoulder injury.
Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. It confirms that he's on track to return for Sunday night's game against the Rams. That's a good matchup vs. the #21 QB defense, but Trubisky is a risky fantasy play in his 1st game back from a throwing-shoulder injury.
Bears HC Matt Nagy said Wednesday that he "feels strong" about QB Mitchell Trubisky's chances of returning from his shoulder injury for Sunday night's game against the Rams. "But I’ve got to see more” in practice, Nagy added. Chicago could certainly use its starting QB in a tough spot this weekend. We'll keep a close eye on his practice participation over the next few weeks.
Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Giants. He returned to a limited practice on Friday, giving him a shot to return for Week 14. QB Chase Daniel gets another start today but is a low-end QB2 in fantasy lineups.
Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for this weekend’s game against the Giants. He put in a limited practice on Friday, giving him a shot to return for Week 14. QB Chase Daniel gets another start on Sunday but is a low-end QB2 in fantasy lineups.
NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports Bears QB Chase Daniel is expected to start this weekend's game against the Giants. QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday, but the team "wants to play it safe" with him, according to Garafolo. Daniel played conservative football in Detroit on Thanksgiving, completing 27 of 37 passes for 230 yards, 2 TDs and 0 INTs. In a tougher matchup in New York, he's just a low-end QB2 for Week 13.
Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. HC Matt Nagy reiterated that Trubisky's shoulder injury isn't a "long-term issue," but it's looking like he'll miss at least 1 more game.
The forecast for today's Jets-Bears game calls for 20 mph sustained winds with gusts around 35 mph. That's more than enough to impact the deep-passing and kicking games. You shouldn't have been investing in the Jets passing game anyway, but the weather is a downgrade for QB Mitchell Trubisky and WR Taylor Gabriel. Short-range targets like TE Trey Burton and RB Tarik Cohen should be fine.
Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) is not expected to play against the Jets today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "The hope is a week off gets him right.," Rapoport adds. Robinson's absence leaves Taylor Gabriel, Anthony Miller, Kevin White and Josh Bellamy as Chicago's top 4 WRs. It should also mean a few extra targets for RB Tarik Cohen and TE Trey Burton.
Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky has been "inconsistent" at the start of training camp, according to the Chicago Tribune's Rich Campbell. "One throw will be late, off target or ill-advised, and the next throw will be perfectly placed and on time," Campbell writes. We're just a few days into what's been a rainy training camp for the Bears, so it's far too early to even think about worrying. But it's a good time to remember that Trubisky is a 2nd-year QB in a brand new offense with a bunch of new weapons. It wouldn't be a surprise to see him get off to a relatively slow start this season.
The Bears have named Mark Helfrich their new OC, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Helfrich spent 4 seasons as Chip Kelly's OC at Oregon before serving as the Ducks' HC from 2013-2016. While HC Matt Nagy will call plays for the Bears, Helfrich should bring some tempo and creativity to the offense. We like the coaching staff Chicago is putting together for QB Mitchell Trubisky.
