Report: Bears QB Trubisky dealing with shoulder injury
The Chicago Bears are evaluating a shoulder injury to quarterback Mitchell Trubisky that occurred in Sunday’s overtime loss to the New Orleans Saints, NFL Network reported.
Trubisky took just one snap in the game and ran for three yards before being tackled by linebacker Alex Anzalone.
The 26-year old started the season at quarterback for the Bears after winning the competition with Nick Foles. He started the first three games — all wins — before coach Matt Nagy decided to start Foles instead.
Since then, the Bears are 2-3.
Nagy said earlier this week that he had been thinking about utilizing Trubisky in the wildcat formation.
‘‘It’s a weapon for us to be able to use his legs, then obviously be able to throw the ball, as well,” Nagy said. ‘‘That’s something that we’re looking at. Every game could be a little bit different, but it’s something that teams have to prepare for.”
The Bears are scheduled to play the Titans (5-2) in Tennessee on Sunday. If Trubisky can’t play, practice squad quarterback Tyler Bray would be activated to back up Foles.
On the season, Trubisky is 51-of-86 passing for 560 yards with six touchdowns and three interceptions. He’s added 90 yards rushing on nine carries.
Foles has completed 151 of his 233 pass attempts for 1,411 yards and eight touchdowns. He’s been picked off seven times. On the ground, he’s carried the ball 11 times for minus-1 yards and a score.
