Bears confirm Mitchell Trubisky will start on Sunday

The Bears released their injury designations for Sunday shortly before head coach Matt Nagy met with the media on Friday afternoon, which took some of the intrigue away from Nagy’s announcement of a starting quarterback against the Packers.

Nick Foles was listed as doubtful after missing three practices with a hip injury, which made it all but impossible to imagine he would get the nod ahead of Mitchell Trubisky. Nagy confirmed that Trubisky will get the start at the beginning of his press conference.

“We’re excited that Mitch is ready and it’s an opportunity for him,” Nagy said.

Trubisky started the first three games of the season, but was benched during Week 3 after the Bears fell way behind the Falcons. Foles rallied the team for a win in that game and they opened with five wins in their first six games, but they’ve lost four in a row since that point and the offense has struggled throughout the losing streak.

Now they’ll get to see if Trubisky provides a spark to the team and boosts his rep in his final weeks under contract to the Bears.

  1. Poor Mitch, he is expected to win with no offensive line and a poorly designed offensive line.

  2. True to form, once Foles is handed the reins, he stops knowing how to drive the wagon. Maybe this will set him up for a playoff halftime comeback off the bench.

  3. Should have never pulled him in the first place. Foles’ comeback against Atlanta was fools’ gold.

  4. More dispatches from Fort Zinderneuf. How much longer will Coach Markoff be able to hold off the murderous Packers?

  5. This is the sort of situation where everyone except Packer fans expect a blowout. Packer fans know better. Whenever the Packers face a quarterback situation that is less than perfect for the opposition, the Packers find a way to allow that quarterback to have his Game of the Century! I’ve seen it happen too many times over too many years to believe it can’t happen again.

    A date with the traditionally horrific packer defense will solve lots of problems.

    While a rating of 16 is nothing great to speak of, it hardly deserves to be called horrific. The Viking’s 11 spots lower at 27th, that would qualify as terrible, teetering towards horrific.

  7. Just wish that either Michaels or Collingsworth had the guts to warn us that it could be a potentially super dull game if the regular Bears show up.

    Packers.

    Bears.

    Greatest rivalry in all of sports.

    Over a hundred years old.

    Sometimes bloody.

    The Bears 9 World Championships falls second to only the Packers’ 13 World Championships.

    Through all of that, there’s an undercurrent of respect between the fan bases.

    And then somebody let a purple in here.
