Bears head coach Matt Nagy says starting quarterback Mitch Trubisky is “day-to-day” with a shoulder injury according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reported earlier on Tuesday that the Bears are “optimistic” Trubisky will be able to suit up for the team’s Thanksgiving Day game against the Detroit Lions but Nagy did not sound as sunny in his session with the media.
Trubisky apparently suffered the injury in one of the final plays of the Bears’ win over the Minnesota Vikings Sunday night. While the injury does not appear to be a long-term concern, Nagy said his second-year QB is “in pain” and unlikely to practice on Tuesday.
With the schedule makers doing the Bears absolutely no favors-playing on Sunday night and then again in the early game on Thanksgiving just four days later-Trubisky seems genuinely questionable against the Lions. Veteran backup Chase Daniel will be under center if Trubisky cannot suit up
