REPORT: Mitchell Trubisky Hurt His Shoulder on His One Running Play (UPDATE: It Sounds Serious)

Chicago Bears

One play. One designed running play. And for that, the Chicago Bears might lose their backup quarterback.

News from NFL Network insider Mike Garafolo:

The Bears unveiled a Mitchell Trubisky package on Sunday against the Saints, in which Trubisky was to use his athleticism on a designed quarterback run. I imagine it was supposed to look something like how New Orleans uses Taysom Hill on QB power style runs. However, the play went for minimal yardage and Trubisky wasn’t on the field after that brief cameo. And perhaps an injured shoulder was the reason why.

This marks Trubisky’s third shoulder injury in as many years. The two previous occurrences caused Trubisky to miss one game. If that’s the case here, then Tyler Bray could be elevated into QB2 status. All things considered, it’s not great to see a key backup injured on a gimmick play. Nevertheless, that’s what the Bears are dealing with as they are transitioning from a team getting all the breaks to one that is simply breaking.

UPDATE: It sounds serious:
