Between the growing optimism put forth by Matt Nagy and a full week of practices without restrictions, all signs were pointing to Mitch Trubisky starting in Week 7.
And now it is all but official:
Bears’ QB Mitchell Trubisky, listed as questionable for today’s game against the Saints due to a shoulder injury, will play, per sources.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Trubisky will be lined up under center (or more likely, in the shotgun formation flanked by a running back) when the Bears take on the Saints later this afternoon.
Trubisky has been out of action since early in Week 4 when he suffered an injury to his non-throwing shoulder on the first series of the Bears’ win against the Vikings. He made the trip to London with his teammates, but sat out while Chase Daniel started and Tyler Bray took over as QB2. And now he is set to get back into action with the team 20 days after suffering the injury.
Here’s to being sharper coming off an injury than he was in his first game back last year against the Rams.
