Mitch Trubisky 'feeling better' as Bears prepare for Rams, but Matt Nagy won't say if he'll practice in full this week

Bears coach Matt Nagy wouldn’t say Monday whether he expects injured quarterback Mitch Trubisky to return to practice in full this week.

With the Bears preparing to host the Rams on Sunday night at Soldier Field, Trubisky’s availability will be a big deal. But Nagy kept his update at surface level during his news conference at Halas Hall.


“He’s getting better and he’s feeling better,” Nagy said. “And so I think it’s only fair for today, tomorrow and the next couple of days to go by that. We just keep seeing him throw and we see how he feels and then he tells us. And if we feel like it’s an opportunity for him to go out there and he’s going to be good and safe and our team is good and safe with him in there, then that’s what we’ll do.”

Trubisky missed the last two games with a right shoulder injury but resumed throwing in a practice setting Friday. He also did some on-field throwing Sunday morning at Met Life Stadium before the Bears officially made him inactive for the Giants game.

The Bears have gone 1-1 in Trubisky’s absence. Chase Daniel helped them to a 23-16 victory over the Lions on Thanksgiving. But Daniel threw two interceptions and fumbled four times (one lost) in Sunday’s 30-27 overtime setback against the Giants.

The Bears will return to practice Wednesday afternoon in Lake Forest. Trubisky’s participation will be closely monitored and likely a strong tell toward which direction the Bears are leaning for Sunday’s game.
