Bears HC Matt Nagy officially named Mitch Trubisky their starting quarterback for Sunday’s game against the Packers.
“We’re excited that Mitch is ready and it’s an opportunity for him,” Nage said.
This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, considering that Nick Foles has been held out of practice with a hip injury this week. Chicago listed Foles as doubtful for Week 12, which means Trubisky gets the start and Tyler Bray will serve as his backup.
Trubisky, 26, is a former first-round pick of the Bears back in 2017. He’s entering the final year of his four-year, $29 million contract that included a $19.17 million signing bonus and set to make a base salary of $2.21 million in 2020.
Chicago declined Trubisky’s fifth-year option this past April.
In 2020, Trubisky has appeared in four games for the Bears and completed 59.3 percent of his passes for 560 yards, six touchdowns and three interceptions. He has also rushed for 90 yards.
