Bears Believe Mitch Trubisky Will Play Versus Rams
The Chicago Bears have been without starting quarterback Mitch Trubisky for the past three weeks and two games. In that span, they’ve managed to go 1-1 and maintain their hold atop the NFC North and as the No. 3 seed in the NFC. But Chicago has clearly been missing Trubisky.
With the Bears preparing for a huge test against the No. 1 team in the NFC in the Los Angeles Rams, they’ll most likely be doing it with their starting quarterback back under center.
“I feel strong that he will play, but I’ve got to see more,” coach Matt Nagy told reporters Wednesday before practice. “I feel good about it. I hope so. I’m anxious to get him out there and see him throw the ball around in practice with the guys, and then be able to evaluate him off that.”
“His arrow is up right now,” Nagy said. “I like that. I feel good about where he’s at and I’m excited to see when we get out there today at practice exactly where he is at.”
Trubisky practiced in full on Wednesday, without limitations, which bodes well for the second-year quarterback for Sunday’s big match-up. Trubisky said that arm feels “really good” and that he’s close to being 100 percent. Oh, and that he expects to play Sunday night against the Rams.
“I do; I’ve just got to show coach that I can play,” Trubisky said. “I’m feeling good about where I’m at. As long as I can show them that I can go out there every day and make all the throws and be the player that they know I am, I feel confident that I’ll be able to go.”
