He’s back.

Earlier Wednesday, the Bears were “cautiously optimistic” they will have Mitchell Trubisky back under center Sunday. After Wednesday’s practice, they should feel even better about it.

The team’s starting quarterback had a full practice, putting him on track to return against the Saints.

He has missed most of the past two games after dislocating his left shoulder on the opening drive of the Sept. 29 game against the Vikings.

It’s been tough,” Trubisky said Wednesday, via Chris Emma of 670 The Score. “Obviously, you want to be out there with your team, but stuff happens on the field. Not being able to be out there with my guys hurt, but you try to help in any way you can. Obviously, I got to take care of business rehabbing, try to get back to show I can play.

“It’s all about being smart and obviously trying to think long-term. I’m trying to have the longest career as possible. I’m going to be honest with myself and everyone else in this building. If I can go, I’m going to go, and if there’s no restrictions, no holding back.”

Trubisky will wear a harness on his left shoulder.

The Bears also saw defensive end Bilal Nichols (hand) and receiver Taylor Gabriel (concussion) fully participate Wednesday. Offensive lineman Ted Larsen (knee) and linebacker Joel Iyiegbuniwe (hamstring) were limited.

  1. Mitch and the O-Line is clearly the problem. Thank God they have that stellar defense that continues to dominate with Pagano. He really picked up where Fangio left off. Meanwhile Fangio struggles to work for that horse teeth sporting micromanager in Denver after that 0-4 start. I bet Fangio is looking at Pagano with frustration and jealousy of that defense.

  2. Having Mitch back is good, however what will improve with play calling? Has Nagy torn out all the trick plays for cohen because he needs to. Everytime cohen comes on the field everyone know he’s getting the ball. Where are the power runs for Montgomery and NOT on obvious downs. His plays are so predictable. There are some really good play callers in the NFL, Nagy is not one of them.

    They have an issue at tight end which is killing the offense.

    J.P. Holtz

    Adam Shaheen

    Too many here and the issue seems to be injuries and indecisiveness on Nagy’s part.
