The Chicago Bears appear to be making the move back to Mitchell Trubisky ahead of this week’s showdown against the Green Bay Packers.
Adam Jahns of The Athletic, Trubisky has been throwing with the offense and his right shoulder is reportedly improving.
“When it comes to a QB decision/change, Bears coach Matt Nagy said the team is still working through the injuries of Nick Foles and Mitch Trubisky,” he tweeted out.
That said, the writing here appears to be on the wall. Trubisky threw for six touchdowns and three picks before getting benched for Foles earlier this year. He then injured his shoulder in Week 8 against the New Orleans Saints when he came in for a running play.
Technically, Trubisky is 3-0 on the year – even though one of those victories came in Week 3 as a result of Nick Foles subbing in for him and leading the Bears to a comeback victory against the Atlanta Falcons.
Unfortunately, the train quickly went off the tracks and a Chicago team that was at one point 5-1 now sits at 5-5 on the season.
Part of the problem is that the Bears have a woefully inept offensive line, and an immobile quarterback like Foles is not ideal for that sort of situation. Trubisky isn’t much better – but he is definitely more active.
Will Trubisky be able to help Chicago turn its season back around? Time will tell.
