Mitchell Trubisky injured his throwing shoulder on Sunday, November 1 against the New Orleans Saints. He visited a shoulder specialist on November 6 and has been rehabbing it ever since while being considered week to week.

Nick Foles injured his hip/glute on Monday, November 16 against the Minnesota Vikings, and while the initial injury led to him being carted off the field, the tests weren’t as bad as the team feared. They called it a hip pointer and said he could be back in a couple weeks.

The Chicago Bears next play on Sunday, November 29 against the Packers, and while Foles is still the scheduled quarterback to meet the media on Wednesday — which is a good indication that he’s set to start in Green Bay — he also wasn’t seen today at the open portion of practice at Halas Hall.

Trubisky, who has been throwing according to The Athletic’s Adam Jahns, was seen at the open portion of practice today.

The Bears won’t reveal their first injury report for Sunday’s game until Wednesday, but early indication is that Mitch is the healthier option right now. Head coach Matt Nagy said they are still evaluating the two players and a decision could be made on Wednesday, but a change back to Trubisky is “on the table.”
