Adam Schefter reports that Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is hopeful to play in next Sunday’s game against the Giants, but there’s no guarantee he’ll be able to return and it’s still possible he’ll end up missing more than one game.
However, should Trubisky sit out Week 13, Schefter says he would be expected to return the following week.
The Bears started Chase Daniel against the Lions on Thanksgiving, so it’s possible he could get another start, depending on how Trubisky’s shoulder is in the coming days.
Trubisky, 24, is a former first-round pick of the Bears back in 2017. He’s in the second year of his four-year, $29 million contract that included a $19.17 million signing bonus and set to make base salaries of $892,238 and $152,156 over the next two years.
The contract includes a fifth-year option for the Bears to pick up in 2020.
In 2018, Trubisky has appeared in 10 games for the Bears and completed 65.4 percent of his passes for 2,469 yards, 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He has also rushed for 363 yards and three touchdowns.
We’ll have more regarding Trubisky as the news is available.
