Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky Has Hip Pointer Injury


Bears HC Matt Nagy told reporters on Monday that QB Mitchell Trubisky was diagnosed with a right hip pointer that occurred during Sunday night’s game.

Nagy added the injury is the reason Trubisky was removed from the game late in the fourth quarter. He wouldn’t say if Trubisky would miss practice this week or was in danger of missing next week’s game. 

Nagy said Trubisky is “absolutely” still Chicago’s starter when he’s healthy, per James Palmer. Chase Daniel would start for the Bears in Week 12 if Trubisky can’t play. 

Trubisky, 25, is a former first-round pick of the Bears back in 2017. He’s in the third year of his four-year, $29 million contract that included a $19.17 million signing bonus and set to make base salaries of $152,156 and $2.21 million over the next two years.

The contract includes a fifth-year option for the Bears to pick up in 2020.

In 2019, Trubisky has appeared in nine games for the Bears and completed 62.4 percent of his passes for 1,580 yards, nine touchdowns and four interceptions.

We’ll have more regarding Trubisky as the news is available.
