  Bears | Mitchell Trubisky lights up Dallas on TNF    Fri Dec 6, 12:56 AM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 23 of 31 passes for 244 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in a Week 14 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. He also ran 10 times for 63 yards and a score.

Footballguys view: Trubisky is playing well enough to earn the starting job going into 2020 with a lot of possible options on the market in the offseason to give the Bears second thoughts. He finally is coming alive as a runner and should be confident heading into a matchup with Green Bay with the Bears playoff hopes still alive.

  Bears | Mitchell Trubisky picked off twice in win    Sun Nov 24, 07:36 PM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 25-of-41 passes for 278 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Week 12 against the New York Giants and he also rushed for a score.

Footballguys view: Trubisky threw an end zone pick and struggled early, but had a good second half and probably will keep his job through the end of the season on the strength of this performance. We'll get to see him on Thanksgiving against the Lions in a matchup that could get him some QB2/Superflex consideration.

  Bears | Mitchell Trubisky cleared to start    Fri Nov 22, 02:52 PM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (hip) does not appear on the team's Week 12 injury report after practicing in full Friday, Nov. 22, and is expected to start Week 12 against the New York Giants.

Footballguys view: Trubisky will get the start vs. the Giants, in bad news for the Bears receiving corps. The team isn't going to use his hip injury as an excuse to bench him - at least not yet.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (hip) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 21.

Footballguys view: The Bears have an out if they want to start Chase Daniel, which would greatly affect the projections of their passing game. We might be watching this one until game time, but for now, assume Trubisky will start.

  Bears | Mitchell Trubisky looking good    Thu Nov 21, 12:55 PM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (hip) had a 'good' practice Wednesday, Nov. 20, head coach Matt Nagy said Thursday, adding that he expects Trubisky to practice in full again Thursday.

Footballguys view: Trubisky can look healthy and the Bears are rolling forward with him. After getting benched last week, Trubisky might be on a short leash for the Bears.

  Bears | Mitchell Trubisky expected to start Sunday    Wed Nov 20, 03:21 PM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (hip) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 20, and is expected to start against the New York Giants Sunday, Nov. 24.

Footballguys view: Trubisky's hip injury is not seen as serious. However, his play has been below average so the Bears might have a short leash for their young quarterback after he was benched in Week 11.

  Bears | Mitchell Trubisky dealing with hip injury    Mon Nov 18, 01:21 PM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (hip) suffered a right hip pointer when he was sacked at the end of the second quarter in Week 11 against the Los Angeles Rams, according to head coach Matt Nagy. Trubisky was pulled from the game late in favor of Chase Daniel, but Nagy insisted the move was made due to the injury.'Every decision that was made, it had zero to do with his play. It was completely based off his injury and where he was at,' Nagy said.

Footballguys view: Trubisky is the starter if he's healthy, but we'll see how long this hip injury lingers with him. Daniel is a seasoned veteran who has already started earlier this year when Trubisky was banged up. Adjust expectations for the Bears offense accordingly.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (hip) completed 24 of his 43 passes for 190 yards, one touchdown and one interception during the team's Week 11 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 16-of-23 passes for 173 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 10 against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Trubisky got hot in the second half and the win probably staves off calls for his job for at least a few more weeks. He's not trustworthy in fantasy leagues against the Rams on the road next week.

  Bears | Disatrous outing for Mitchell Trubisky    Sun Nov 3, 05:29 PM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 10-of-21 passes for 125 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 9 against the Philadelphia Eagles. He also ran for 15 yards.

Footballguys view: We'll keep the benching watch going this week, although the team would be admitting their franchise quarterback isn't better than Chase Daniel. With few if any gimmes left on the schedule, the Bears are at crossroads and both directions lead to dead ends.

  Bears | Chicago sticking with Mitchell Trubisky    Mon Oct 28, 01:38 PM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky will remain the starting quarterback for the foreseeable future, according to comments made by head coach Matt Nagy on Monday, Oct. 28.

Footballguys view: Trubisky is their starter but he's not playing well. They'll stick with him because he was such a high draft pick in 2017, but Trubisky has clearly taken a step back in his third year of starting.

  Bears | Optimism Mitchell Trubisky returns after bye    Tue Oct 8, 08:58 PM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (elbow) is hopeful to return Sunday, Oct. 20, against the New Orleans Saints in Week 7 following the team's Week 6 bye, according to head coach Matt Nagy Monday, Oct. 7. 'He's feeling good,' Nagy said. 'I felt like the last couple days he's been in a good place. He's been a part of all the meetings, a part of practice mentally. Because that's just as important, staying involved mentally with your guys and with us. And now we'll just kind of see here, again the bye comes at a unique time. Here he is, he gets injured, so here's the bye. Now, he's able to use this and see if he's able to come back or not for the next game.'I hope he's back. But I don't know that. It could be something where it goes longer than that. I don't know.'

Footballguys view: The Bears have a bye in Week 6 and the plan all along was to try and have Trubisky ready after that. We'll know more about his status next week when the Bears get back to practice.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 2.

  Bears | Mitchell Trubisky likely to miss Week 5    Wed Oct 2, 02:08 PM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is considered day-to-day because of his shoulder injury, but head coach Matt Nagy said Trubisky likely will not play in the Week 5 game.

Footballguys view: That means Chase Daniel should get the start for the Bears on Sunday. The game is in London against the Raiders, and Daniel should be able to handle things against that defense. With Daniel under center, we wouldn't be surprised to see him pepper RB Tarik Cohen with a lot of targets. Also, the Bears might emphasize the rushing attack with David Montgomery more in Week 5.

  Bears | Mitchell Trubisky should avoid surgery    Mon Sep 30, 01:19 PM

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is reportedly dealing with a dislocated left shoulder - with a slight labrum tear - but will not require surgery and should be able to return to action 'sooner than later' based on initial MRI results, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Footballguys view: The Bears have some time with Trubisky on the shelf but it may not be as long as originally feared. He will reportedly travel with the team to London in Week 5 but not play versus the Oakland Raiders, and there is optimism he will play following the team's Week 6 bye.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (arm) left the Week 4 game against the Minnesota Vikings due to a left arm injury in the first quarter. He went to the locker room and has been replaced by QB Chase Daniel.

Footballguys view: The pass offense is crisper and more effective with Daniel and the offense might not be hurt all that much by Trubisky's departure. The Raiders are up next week and Trubisky could be looking at an extended absence.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 26 of 45 passes for 228 yards, no touchdowns and an interception against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Sept. 5. Trubisky also ran three times for 11 yards.

Footballguys view: The Bears won't want to throw 45 times in a game again this year. Trubisky was missing open receivers and otherwise got away with at least one decision that could have been an easy interception. He'll be on our benches against Denver next week.

  Bears | Mitchell Trubisky progressing on reads    Wed Aug 14, 09:36 AM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky is 'way past' where he was last season in reading defenses, according to head coach Matt Nagy. Trubisky was not always in tune with reading blitzes and coverages because he was so worried about getting the play called. Now, he's playing off of instincts.

Footballguys view: Trubisky needs to take a step forward in 2019. Fantasy GMs may have something nice on their hands if Trubisky continues to develop as a pro passer. Trubisky has a current ADP of QB21 (14.01) in 12-team PPR leagues. He could easily outperform that draft position this season.

  Bears | Mitchell Trubisky comfortable, confident    Sun Jun 30, 08:20 PM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky said he feels more comfortable running head coach Matt Nagy's offense this season.

Footballguys view: Trubisky should be better in year two under Nagy and Nagy has said that his quarterback has gone from 101 to 202 and is doing things he couldn't do last year earlier in the offseason. The Bears offense had a good first year under Nagy until Trubisky got hurt and the whole unit could take a step forward.

Footballguys view: Trubisky was sharp against the Packers and might have had a bigger game if Aaron Rodgers had been more effective and forced a higher scoring game script. He'll be a high ceiling QB1 against the 49ers next week.
