ears coach Matt Nagy wouldn’t say Monday whether he expects injured quarterback Mitch Trubisky to return to practice in full this week.
With the Bears preparing to host the Rams on Sunday night at Soldier Field, Trubisky’s availability will be a big deal. But Nagy kept his update at surface level during his news conference at Halas Hall.
Nagy was quoted in the story as saying Trubisky is getting better and feeling better. Trubisky has missed the last two games but resumed throwing last Friday before the team's game against the Giants.
CHI QB Mitch Trubisky - Week 18 Fantasy Football Outlook
Wild Card Playoffs vs. Philadelphia Eagles
As expected, Mitch Trubisky struggled last week against a tough defense. He finished with just 163 yards and no touchdowns, just the second time he's been held scoreless all season. Although it was the fifth time he's been held under 200 yards, which will be a reason why he's not a reliable every week guy.
He gets his first career playoff test this week against the Eagles, which is a decent matchup. The Eagles gave up the 11th-most fantasy points to quarterbacks during the regular season, although they finished the year on a high-note holding Washington to just 91 yards. However in the three games prior the secondary gave up over 300 yards in each outing.
Depending on the game flow, we could see a decent performance from Trubisky this week. He's not one of the stronger playoff QB options, but there are a few worse choices.
