Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky set to start vs. Rams
As the Chicago Bears prepare for their primetime matchup against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night, Mitchell Trubisky appears to be on the mend. He has missed the last to weeks due to a right shoulder issue and Chase Daniel has led the team to a 1-1 record. Now, the Bears are going to get their signal caller back for the biggest challenge of their season.
According to a report from NFL.com, Trubisky is set to return on Sunday night against the Rams.
Mitchell Trubisky (right shoulder) put in a full practice Thursday for a second consecutive day and is set to start Sunday night’s game against the Los Angeles Rams, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.
Trubisky has been putting together a massive second NFL season for the Bears. He has fit perfectly into the offense that Matt Nagy runs and has proven that he is without question the franchise quarterback that Chicago has been desperately needing to find for years.
Throughout the 10 games that he has played for the Bears this season, Trubisky has completed 65.4 percent of his pass attempts for 2,469 yards, 20 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. He has also picked up 363 yards and three touchdowns on the ground.
Chicago appears to be a legitimate contender in the NFC this season. If they were able to pull off a huge upset win over the Rams, they would immediately become the talk of the NFL.
It will be interesting to see what kind of game the Bears are able to play this week. Los Angeles has one of the NFL’s most lethal offenses and a quality defense. Trubisky will have his work cut out for himself in his return to the field, but he is more than capable of making the plays necessary to win a big football game.
