Mitch Trubisky Doubtful for Thanksgiving Game vs. Lions with Right Shoulder Injury

While Chicago Bears fans are certainly thankful for being 7-3 following Sunday night’s big divisional win over the Minnesota Vikings, one thing Bears fans certainly aren’t thankful for is quarterback Mitch Trubisky’s injury.

Trubisky injured his right (throwing) shoulder near the end of Sunday night’s win over the Vikings after Harrison Smith’s late hit. Trubisky hadn’t “practiced” on Monday or Tuesday before the team announced on Wednesday that he’ll be “doubtful” for Thursday’s divisional game against the Detroit Lions.

Chase Daniel is expected to get the start for the Bears.

According to Ian Rapoport and Adam Schefter, Trubisky is nursing a shoulder bruise/sprained AC joint. It’s expected to be a one-week injury.

While Trubisky hasn’t officially been ruled “out” for the game, it’s highly unlikely the second-year quarterback plays on this short 85-hour turnaround. Expect Trubisky to be ready Dec. 2 for the Bears’ game against the New York Giants.
