On Wednesday, Bears HC Matt Nagy told reporters that he “feels strong” about QB Mitch Trubisky playing in Week 14’s game against the Rams, but he needs to see him practice first.
“I feel strong that he will play but I gotta see more,” Nagy said, per Brad Biggs.
Trubisky later told reporters that his arm “feels really good” and he expects to play on Sunday.
“I do. I’ve just got to show Coach I can play,” Trubisky said, per Rich Campbell.
The Bears have gone with Chase Daniel as their starting quarterback in each of the past two games while Trubisky has been nursing a shoulder injury.
However, reports have said that a Week 14 return was worth watching for Trubisky.
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.
