I guess Matt Nagy liked what he saw out of Mitch Trubisky:
#Bears Wednesday Injury Report:
DNP: DB Deon Bush (hamstring)
Limited: RB Benny Cunningham (ankle); DB Sherrick McManis (hamstring)
Full: QB Mitchell Trubisky (right shoulder)
— Chicago Bears (@BearsPR) December 5, 2018
Trubisky has missed the last two games due to a right shoulder injury and was limited in practice late last week, but returned to the practice field as a full participant on Wednesday. It’s his first full participation on the practice field since before suffering the injury in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings. Earlier, Nagy hinted at Trubisky getting first-team reps if he was able to prove how healthy his throwing shoulder was … I guess Nagy liked what he saw.
On his end, Trubisky said he expected to play on Sunday and wanted to show his coach he could give it his all in practice with no reservations. Getting in a full practice essentially says that mission has been accomplished. Please clap.
Next stop: Soldier Field on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams.
The rest of the Bears’ injury report shows running back/return specialist Benny Cunningham (ankle) and defensive back/special teams stud Sherrick McManis (hamstring) as limited. Both players did not practice last week and neither player suited up or played, so I suppose this counts as an upgrade as far as their respective statuses are concerned. Hooray for special teams players getting healthier!
Unfortunately, safety Deon Bush did not practice with a hamstring injury. Because hamstring injuries can be tricky, I fully expect the Bears to proceed with caution with their top reserve safety and one of their more productive special teams contributors.
