Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky will spend the first part of his offseason recovering from surgery.

Jeff Dickerson of reports that Trubisky had surgery to repair a partially torn labrum in his left shoulder. That’s Trubisky’s non-throwing shoulder and Dickerson reports that the recovery is expected to take a couple of months.

Trubisky injured the shoulder early in the season and General Manager Ryan Pace said that surgery was a possibility when he met with the media at the end of the regular season.

Trubisky didn’t progress as hoped in 2019, but the Bears have said that Trubisky is their starter heading into the 2020 season. The Bears could move to add a veteran option to back him up and serve as a possible replacement if things don’t get any better this year.

  1. Bears would be a contender with a serviceable quarterback. Championship windows are unapologetically brief, and can close any second. Bears need a 4,000 yard 25 TD / <10 INT QB and they'd be in the playoffs for 2020. Drop Trubisky now, and consider Philip Rivers, Gardner Minshew, hell, Tom Brady even.

    Maybe they should do a surgery on his right shoulder. And on his brain.

    Maybe they should do brain surgery on whomever drafted him second overall while Mahomes went tenth and Watson went twelfth.

  3. We all know Trubisky won’t be Mahomes and Watson. All three were in the playoffs the past two seasons. Trubisky is heavily over-criticized and undefeated against 2/3rds of his divisional opponents.

  4. Problem #1 for Trubisky: a bonehead play caller. Problem# 2: terrible O-line, no time or protection. Problem #3: injured shoulder.

  5. When a team with a c- running game has an average athletic qb, unable to take a hit due to this type of injury, opposing defenses drop an extra player and a half into coverage while begging qb to run. Mitch just doesn’t yet have the game to deal with that type of coverage, not yet, perhaps never. The situation is what it is.

  6. Unless he can have surgery to turn him to Watson or Mahomes it will be another lost season for the Bears as they battle the Packers and Lions for last place.
