Bears' Trubisky (shoulder) set to start vs. Rams
7:20 PM ET
LAKE FOREST, Ill. — Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky will return from a two-game hiatus due to a right shoulder injury and start Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams, head coach Matt Nagy announced.
Trubisky practiced without restrictions the entire week and did not appear on the final injury report the club released on Friday.
“Yeah, we feel pretty good [about Trubisky’s health],” Nagy told reporters. “The word clear, I don’t know what exactly the word clear, but he’s at a spot right now where we feel comfortable with going through these practices that he’s done, he’s done good, he’s done a good job with it and I like where he’s at.”
Added Nagy: “He put together three really good days in practice. I thought the velocity on his throws was good, his decision-making just getting in and out of the huddle, that part was easy. The main thing was for us, seeing conditioning-wise, being able to see can he hold up with that and he did. He did well.”
The Bears exercised extreme caution in regard to the right shoulder injury Trubisky suffered late in the fourth quarter of Chicago’s 25-20 victory over Minnesota
