Nagy said Trubisky is feeling good and the bye week comes at a great time to give Trubisky some extra opportunity to heal. The injury was to his non-throwing shoulder which could help push him along for a quicker return.
Trubisky does not need surgery and should he back “sooner rather than later,” per source according to Schefter. Trubisky will travel with team to London and is unlikely to play vs. Raiders, Schefter went on to say. The Bears have a bye the following week. Meanwhile, Daniel gets the start in Week 5 vs. the Raiders.
The Bears played almost the entire game without starting quarterback Mitchell Trubisky today after a shoulder injury on the first possession, but they don’t think they’ll have to play the season without him.
Bears coach Matt Nagy said today that he does not believe Trubisky’s injury is season ending. Otherwise, Nagy said, there’s not a lot of information until Trubisky undergoes more medical testing.
As the story said, Daniel played pretty well replacing Trubisky early in the game and helping to lead the Bears to a win over the Vikings. The injury is to Trubisky's non-throwing shoulder, but it looks like Daniel is going to be the starter perhaps at least for the next couple of weeks.
On the play, Trubisky's body twisted and his left shoulder hit the ground violently as Hunter pulled him down, causing the quarterback to fumble. Tribisky was coming off his best game after win against the Redskins on Monday night and owners were hoping it would carry over to Week 4. Now his status is in doubt for Week 5 and perhaps beyond.
