Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky Undergoes Shoulder Surgery


According to Jeff Dickerson, Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky underwent surgery shortly after the regular season ended to repair a torn labrum in his left, non-throwing shoulder. 

Trubisky first suffered the injury when he dislocated his shoulder in Week 4. He ended up missing only one game and played the rest of the season with the injury with the goal of having surgery to correct it after the year was over. 

Dickerson says the typical recovery for this minor procedure is just a couple of months, meaning Trubisky should be fine for OTAs as he enters a crucial offseason for his career. The Bears say they plan to stick with him as a starter in 2020 but could choose to bring in competition. 

Trubisky, 25, 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. 

The Bears also have a fifth-year option for Trubisky for the 2021 season. 

In 2019, Trubisky appeared in 15 games for the Bears and completed 63.2 percent of his passes for 3,138 yards, 17 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions to go along with 193 yards rushing and two touchdowns.
