Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky hasn’t been lighting the world on fire, but he is still a starting NFL QB and he likely won’t be taking the field for the Bears next Sunday when they face the Raiders in London according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Initial MRI on Bears’ QB Mitchell Trubisky revealed he has a dislocated left shoulder, with a slight labrum tear, but does not need surgery and should he back “sooner rather than later”, per source. He will travel with team to London and is unlikely to play vs. Raiders.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 30, 2019
Trubisky was knocked out of the Bears’ game against the Vikings Sunday, ushering in Chase Daniel and the Bears didn’t seem to miss a beat.
Daniel completed 22 of 30 passes for 197 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions and the Bears took out a very good Vikings team 16-6.
As we know, the Vikings put it on the Raiders in week three to easily win 34-14.
The advantage the Raiders have is a week to prepare for Daniel instead of game planning for Trubisky or having to game plan for both. The advantage the Bears have is their defense. For that reason it may not matter much whether it’s Trubisky or Daniel behind center.
