Bears Injury Report: Mitch Trubisky Gets the Green Light to Start Sunday’s Game Against the Giants

Chicago Bears

Mitch Trubisky practiced in full (again) on Friday.

And if you are keeping tabs at home, that means he’s been a full participant for each of the three practices held since coming up lame with a hip injury that caused him to miss the end of the Bears’ Week 11 loss to the Rams. So since there is no injury status designation attached to Trubisky as we enter the weekend, it means that Trubisky is medically cleared, will be active on Sunday, and is in line to start against the Giants.

Trubisky is a full-go against New York, but the same can’t be said for some of his teammates.

Here is a complete look at Friday’s injury report:

Tight end Adam Shaheen is out because of a foot injury for the second straight week. This will mark the third consecutive missed game for Shaheen, whose run of inactive games began in Week 10 when he was a healthy scratch against the Lions. Shaheen has since suffered a foot injury that is keeping him off the field. Joining Shaheen among the early inactive is linebacker Danny Trevathan, though there is some hope he can make it back before season’s end.

Outside linebacker/special teams contributor Isaiah Irving was a full participant in practice for the first time since suffering a quad injury against the Chargers. Irving has missed the last three games, but is on the brink of returning to the active roster this weekend after practicing without limitations on Friday. Right tackle Bobby Massie also practiced in full on Friday. And like Trubisky, that is now three straight full practice days for the starter — which also makes him a full-go for Sunday.

And like clockwork, defensive lineman Bilal Nichols (knee) was listed as a limited participant with no status designation because the team practiced indoor on turf. Nichols will start on Sunday at his usual spot on the line.

Now that the Bears are a little bit healthier now than they were at the end of last week, perhaps they can pull through with a win against a struggling Giants team.
