Bears coach Matt Nagy is hopeful quarterback Mitch Trubisky can return this week, with circumstances that significantly increase the efforts. Following Chase Daniel’s shaky performance in an overtime jam to the giants at Meadowlands and the prospect of meeting 11-1 the Sunday night’s rambles on Soldier Field, Trubisky’s return seems more of a demand than a choice this week.
Nagy gave little indication of Trubishy’s status on Monday. Second quarterback missed his second consecutive game with a broken shaft as a result of a late hit by Harrison Smith on a five-year track since the fourth quarter against the folds on November 1
Trubisky threw a passport in practice for the first time on Friday and also threw before Sunday’s game against the giants. His competitiveness and desire to play in a racing game can make him more likely to play if he is close. But Nagy would not even commit Trubisky in full this week.
“I can not say it for sure,” said Nagy. “I hope he is. In the last several days he is getting better and feeling better. So I think it’s just fair … that we just keep watching him throw and see how he felt and then he tells us.” 19659005] Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky (10) is fifth among NFL quarterbacks in rushing yards (363 yards on 51 berries) and first in laps per berry (7.1). | AP Photo / David Banks
