Bears coach Matt Nagy said Wednesday morning he wasn’t expecting Mitchell Trubisky to practice. As it turned out, the quarterback did something during practice.

The team officially listed Trubisky as limited with a right shoulder injury.

He went through some on-field drills, focusing on footwork, during the period open to the media, according to Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune. But Trubisky did not throw.

Despite Trubisky’s return to practice on a limited basis, Chase Daniel still is expected to make a second consecutive start.

Nagy said it could be a “game-time thing” for Trubisky.

“It’s going to continue to be one of those day-to-day things with him,” Nagy said Wednesday, via Larry Mayer of the team website. “I don’t know his exact pain tolerance or level right now. But I definitely think his arrow’s up right now, and we’ll just have to kind of keep communicating with him on a day-to-day basis as to where he’s at, how he feels.”

Running back Benny Cunningham (ankle), defensive lineman Akiem Hicks (Achilles) and cornerback Sherrick McManis (hamstring) did not practice.

  1. The Bears front office has not said very much about
    the extent of Mr Biscuit’s shoulder injury, but he does
    seem to in pain (body language). He most probably has
    an inflamed shoulder which can be painful. I believe the
    Bears should rest him until AFTER the Rams game. We certainly
    don’t want Aaron Donald having Biscuits for breakfast after the
    Rams’ defense attempts to torcher him.

  2. Anyone else have the thought he comes back well rested and they pull off the upset against the Rams? Coach is looking out for his players and that’s for sure!! Smart man not risking them.

  3. Would it really be an upset if bears beat rams????

    I mean bears for all intents could easily be 10-1. GB games was a fluke loss…..miami game was bizarro world.

    Bears are legit top 3 in NFC w saints and rams. Beating either one wouldent be an ‘upset’.

    Just saying

  4. “.. I mean Bears for all intents could easily be 10-1..”

    I agree with you. And the Bears will most probably have no
    problem beating the Giants and E-Lie on Sunday (even without Mr. Biscuit)… The Bears are underrated, and they probably have the best defense in
    the NFL right now (Most Ravens fans will disagree).. What I
    would love to see is The Bears shock New Orleans in the playoffs…
    That would be grand..

  5. The Bears are 3 plays away from being unbeaten. Green bay game should have won. Miami game should have won. Patriots game, we were 1 yard away from tying up the game at the end of regulation, they make that play game is tied, possible win in overtime
