Mitchell Trubisky has suffered a disclosed left shoulder with a slight labrum tear, but surgery is unlikely for the Bears quarterback, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.

Schefter also mentioned that Trubisky will travel with the team to London for their game against the Raiders next week, but he is unlikely to play.

The third-year signal-caller suffered the injury in the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Vikings. He finished the game 2-for-3 with 9 passing yards before his injury. Chicago won the game 16-6 with Chase Daniel taking Trubisky’s place under center.

The Bears have a bye week in Week 6, and the report indicates that Trubisky could be able to play the following week against the Saints. Whether or not he can play has yet to be determined, but the injury should not hold him back for too long.

Bears coach Matt Nagy indicated in Monday’s press conference that he did not know the severity of the injury, and that the team would find out more as the day progressed. He neither confirmed nor denied Schefter’s report.
