Mitchell Trubisky shares details of hip injury, won’t rule out playing

Mitchell Trubisky

Mitchell Trubisky is dealing with a real injury that forced him out of Sunday night’s game against the Los Angeles Rams, and the Chicago Bears quarterback is unsure if the ailment will impact his status for Week 12.

On Wednesday, Trubisky told reporters he has been diagnosed with a hip pointer. The injury led to tightness during Sunday’s game and limited his range of motion, which is why he had to be replaced by Chase Daniel.

Trubisky said he is trying his best to prepare to face the New York Giants on Sunday, but he is currently considered day-to-day while he sees how he responds to treatment.

There was a lot of speculation that Trubisky was benched for poor performance on Sunday and the Bears were covering for him by making up an injury, but both he and head coach Matt Nagy insist that was not the case. Trubisky and Nagy shared a moment on the sideline just before the QB was pulled that ended up going viral, but it was apparently in that discussion that Trubisky told Nagy his hip was hurting.

Injury or not, Trubisky has not played well this season. The former No. 2 overall pick has thrown for less than 200 yards in three consecutive games, and Chicago’s offense has been a mess for quite some time. If Daniel does have to play on Sunday in place of Trubisky, it would not be a shock if he keeps the job going forward.
