The Chicago Bears enter Week 12 not knowing who’s starting at quarterback when they face the Green Bay Packers.
And before Head Coach Matt Nagy makes a decision (change?), he needs to see who’s healthy first:
#Bears HC Matt Nagy says #Bears still evaluating health of QBs Nick Foles (hip/glute) and Mitchell Trubisky (right shoulder) before determining who starts Sunday night in Green Bay. First injury report is due out Wednesday.

For what it’s worth, Dan Wiederer of the Tribune tweets that Mitchell Trubisky was on the field for the part of practice that was open to the media, while Nick Foles wasn’t. And that’s one heckuva development considering that — even if all things were equal — a quarterback change was “on the table” for this week’s game.
Even with the revelation of who did (and didn’t) practice, Nagy didn’t reveal updates regarding Foles’ glute and hip injuries. Nor did he provide much of an update regarding Mitchell Trubisky’s injured throwing shoulder. And technically speaking, he doesn’t have to until the first injury report of the week comes out on Wednesday. Nothing like starting the week by adding mystery to a must-win game in a prime-time TV slot against your most bitter rival.
