On Friday, the Chicago Bears officially removed QB Mitchell Trubisky from the injury report, paving the way for him to start Sunday’s game against the Rams.
All indications have been that Trubisky was likely to return this week after missing the past two games with a shoulder injury.
Chase Daniel had filled in for Trubisky while he was rehabbing his shoulder issue.
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.
