Matt Nagy announced on Wednesday afternoon that QB Mitch Trubisky would not take part in practice.
Trubisky, who’s been out since hurting his shoulder against the Minnesota Vikings, is still considered day-to-day.
“The time (off) was good for him, but I don’t know his exact level of pain tolerance right now,” he said. “I do think the arrow is up with him, but we’ll just have to keep communicating on a daily basis with him about where he’s at.”
Between his absence from practice and the Bears’ comfortability with backup Chase Daniel, the decision to keep Trubisky out continues to point towards another start for Daniel on Sunday.
“It helps to have that,” Nagy said, when asked about his comfort level with Daniel. “That decision [to sit Trubisky] isn’t made because of that. We’re going to do what’s best for Mitch, and what’s best for us, and once we know where that’s at, we’ll be ready to get them both prepared mentally and physically as well.”
While Trubisky continues to sit out of practice, Nagy insisted that the injury is still not a serious one.
“No, not really,” Nagy answered when asked if Trubisky’s range of motion was affected. “I think the range is good.”
