Bears don’t think injury will end Mitch Trubisky’s season

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.

Trubisky suffered the injury to his left (non-throwing) shoulder when he was hit and fumbled, and reached his left arm out awkwardly, seeming to be attempting both to reach for the loose ball and to break his fall.

Fortunately, backup Chase Daniel played fairly well and helped the Bears beat the Vikings. The drop-off from Trubisky to Daniel may not be much, and so the Bears may not need Trubisky to rush back.

  1. Bears are not winning with Mitch or without Mitch. Time to find a new quarterback back next year this guy is not the answer and that sucks for this team because besides the quarterback they have a roster that could win the big game.

  2. Chase Daniels is the same player. This is the second time he has been hurt in 3 seasons. He isn’t very good and it’s just admit this and move on

    That was a great game by the Bears – SKOL everyone


    The Bears played a great game, congrats. SKOL

  4. Have you been watching Mitch play this season?Why would it mean the end of the season? It didn’t mean the end of the season because the Bears have a very good defense.

  5. The Bears defense is scary good, and they were missing some big players. Chase Daniel played well, but that was this game. The Vikings didn’t prepare even a little bit to play against Chase Daniel. Either the case, it’s not a drop off from Trubisky to Daniel other than the running. That defense is good enough to keep them in any game. If Trent Dilfer can win a SB with a stout defense, anything can happen.

  6. Bears could have had Mahomes or Watson and they chose Trubisky. Sounds like that scout should be fired. Trubisky is nothing more than a career backup and the sooner they realize that, the sooner they can stop putting that defense to waste.

  7. The Bears defence is Good enough were all they need is an average and at times above average QB. Let’s see if Chase Daniel’s is the answer but they do need to pick up another QB but not use a Draft pick.My opinion Kyle Luleta Eagles practice squad or Chad Kelly Colts practice squad.

  8. Kalil Mack sgould call up Andrew Luck and promise him a Super bowl if he’d give it one more shot.. Then the Bears should offer the Colts a TOP pick – and Trubinski – for Luck.

    This defense is the best since ’85.. they CANT waste it!

  9. Everyone is still angry we passed on Patrick Mahomes but do honestly believe he would be just as successful with the Bears as he is with the Chiefs.Im getting to the point were I’m believing that if a Joe Montana clone came to the Bears They would find a way to muff it up.There is a reason why there has been only 2 Quarterbacks to get only 2 probowl nods together playing for the Bears since 1985.

    Brian Urlacher’s hairpiece thinks that Chase Daniel, Mitch Trubisky and Matt Nagy will all be looking for new work after this season.
    0 chance Nagy is looking for a job

  11. Imagine taking this guy over Mahomes and Watson…….

    Give it a rest. Not one person, not one, was saying those guys should be the number one pick at the time. In fact, most thought Watson was a reach in the first round and Mahomes was a project qb. If anyone knew or thought they’d be what they are they both would’ve been drafted much sooner.

  12. Even if Trubisky gets healthy, he is not the answer in Chicago. He has shown no improvement at looking off receivers or with his accuracy. I hope he is OK, but he is not going to get paid. Year 4 is coming up.

  13. Trubisky suffered the injury to his left (non-throwing) shoulder when he was hit and fumbled, and reached his left arm out awkwardly, seeming to be attempting both to reach for the loose ball and to break his fall.

    Maybe its just me but I didn’t think that looked awkward at all, he was simply reaching out when he went down and at first I thought he just knocked the wind out of himself or maybe injuried his ribs, I never thought it look as if he should have injuried his shoulder on that play!

  14. The Bears have one of the best defenses in NFL history. Chase Daniel is plenty good enough to win. Nick Foles won a super bowl a couple years ago. Bears’ fans should stay positive. If Trubisky comes back, fine. If he’s out, roll with it.

  15. For years now, Bears would’ve been better off with McCown over the current starters of the last 5+ years! I’d have McCown and the current backup on the roster, trade the rest of them.

    Or…trade a pick for Eli??”

    He’s worse than Daniel

    You do realize they won the game and are tied for first place in the NFC north, right? I would be more concerned with your team which I assume is the Vikings and their 84 million dollar mistake at QB.

  18. For all you Vikings fans ragging on Trubisky. Getting injured doesn’t make you a bust, but rather not playing well does. Just in case you haven’t noticed, Mitch has had a better season stat wise than Cousins, so maybe you should be more concerned about that. Oh and the 84 million you paid him too. Smart move.

  19. This post is for every ignorant person who types, “you passed on mahomes for this”…..

    Here is a snipit of one of the NFL analysis on mahomes at the time. You have to be pretty stupid to keep saying teams passed on him when his analysis reads like this..

    “In this draft analyst’s opinion, I would grade Mahomes as a second-round pick. That is the same grade the NFL draft advisory board gave him. A general manger of a NFC team said they had a fourth-round grade on Mahomes, but felt he had some tools to work with. That same team has a third- to fourth-round grade on Deshaun Watson, a fifth-round grade on Miami quarterback Brad Kaaya, and a second-round grade on Mitch Trubisky. That team is a tough grader, overall. Another NFC team said they had Mahomes low – into Day 3 – and weren’t hot on him as a prospect, but they also have a young franchise quarterback, so they aren’t interested in quarterbacks until the late rounds of the 2017 NFL Draft.

    Sources from one AFC team said they had a second-round grade on Mahomes and viewed him similarly to Derek Carr coming out of Fresno State. They are very high on Mahomes and think he could become a hot prospect in the leadup to the draft. The scouting director of another AFC team said they liked Mahomes. They graded him in the third round, but don’t think he is as good of a prospect as Carr. Another AFC team said they also had a second-day grade on Mahomes.

    There are plenty of teams in the NFL that are starved for quarterback talent, so Mahomes could rise in the leadup to the 2017 NFL Draft just because of need and desperation. It isn’t out of the realm of possibility that Mahomes goes in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft. Round 2 could be his destination, and he probably won’t go any lower than the second round. ”

    Hindsight is 20/20, and you don’t have to have any brain cells to see something good happens and then talk about how you should have gone back and done something after the fact.

  20. I think most people gave up on Turdbustky when he asked that we refer to him as “Mitchell” because that’s what his Mom named him.

    It was like ANDY from the Office asking Jim to call him “Drew” and Jim saying “No, I’m not gonna call you that.”

  21. The mocking of Trubisky’s name would be fun if the mocked names weren’t so stupid. As much as I had hope in Trubisky’s future as a QB, I’m learning very quickly that he may not be the first round talent that not only cost us our 1st round pick that year, but the extra picks given up to move up one spot in the draft. The Bears receivers are getting open. The Bears need to go shopping for a semi-accurate passer that can give this offense a chance to win some games. You can’t just sit back week after week waiting for the defense to score all of the points. They deserve better than what they are getting.

  22. Is it just me, or is C Daniel better than Mitch T…. The Bears seemed like a better team when Mitch left the game.

  23. I’d take Mitch Trubisky over Kirk Cousins. They both are psychologically brittle with pocket-pressure, and make bad decisions; but at least Mitch has option to scamper away from pressure, out-run even fastest lineman like Suh or Mack, and make backs miss in space.

    Kirk? Not so much.

    I think its just you. If you look at their stats, they are identical in every category. The same efficiency and the same production. It just looks different. So its kind of crazy when people say chase is better. Ummm no they are the same just two different versions.

    But let me remind you of recent history and Daniel’s own history. As a backup he is good for a game or 2, but any longer than that and teams get tape and he puts up a game with 4 INTs or more. In case you forgot it happened just last year. His first game was good, second game against the Giants Daniel threw back to back INTs and fumbled 3 times and the bears lost to the Giants in a game they should have easily won. If you check his history of playing over his career, same thing. He can come in and look good for a game or two and then he sucks.
