NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo said initial tests on Bears QB Nick Foles were positive and showed no sign of a fracture in his hip.
Garafolo adds the Bears think they might have both Foles and QB Mitchell Trubisky back after the team’s bye this week.
Bears HC Matt Nagy told reporters on Tuesday they received good news and Foles is day-to-day with what they’re calling a hip/glute injury. (Brad Biggs)
Foles is receiving an MRI and the hope is the injury is just a severe hip pointer. (Jeremy Fowler)
Foles isn’t expected to need to go to injured reserve but Nagy also didn’t guarantee he’d be the starter when Chicago comes off its bye: “When you lose four games in a row, it’s all on the table. Everything is out there.” (Andrew Siciliano)
