Mitchell Trubisky set to play on Sunday

The Bears played without quarterback Mitchell Trubisky in their Week Five loss to the Raiders, but it appears that week off and a bye in Week Six were all the time off his injured left shoulder needed.

Trubisky was listed as questionable after full participation in all three of the team’s practices this week and Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that he is set to start against the Saints in Sunday’s home game.

Chicago has not found strong offensive footing to this point in the season. They’ve fallen short of 300 yards of offense in all five of their games and are averaging 17 points a game.

The Saints defense has not been an easy one to play against this year, so it’s not the softest of landings for Trubisky in his return to the lineup.

  1. The Bears defense is being handed a gift in not having to cover Brees, Kamara or Cook. Bilal Nichols is back to fill the hole at NT to stop Murray. Offense will need to avoid 3 and outs to wear down the Saints defense. Lattimore can only cover one receiver, and the Bears not only get Gabriel back, but Anthony Miller is finally ready to cut loose after removing his shoulder harness. The changeup in the offensive line should give Trubisky a bit of time to find open receivers. If we can’t win this one, then we never were good enough to be a playoff team. I refuse to believe that. Nagy needs to get this offense going TODAY!

  2. It looks to be another wild Sunday for the only division in the NFL where no team has a losing record. All 3 of the games involving the 4 NFCN teams could go either way. At the end of today, the Bears could be in 2nd, 3rd or 4th place. So could the Lions. The Vikings could end up tied for 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th.

    If the Packers lose today and the Lions and Bears win, next week could be even crazier. This is the way it ought to be.

  3. fortunately for the Saints, their two biggest stars are backed up by some of the highest paid players in back up positions. Basically rolling out with the Vikings starting backfield. Teddy and Latavius would both be first on the depth chart in Chicago.

  4. This whole Trubisky experiment has shown how little Pace knows about building a winner. Terrible regression from last year, no running game, no passing game and no even subtle hints that there was a trace of justification for drafting Trubisky earlier that 2nd in the 7th round in 2017. The Bear house cleaning has to start with the fellows who wear ties to work at Halas Hall.

  5. Trubisky is proving he is not the answer — he’s way more the second coming of Rex Grossman than the franchise QB this team needs. Time, maybe, to move on.

    We long for the return of the Monster of the Midway — in its current configuration, we’ve got the Mouse of the Midway.
