NFL Update: Mitchell Trubisky Leaves Game with a Shoulder Injury
On the first drive of the Chicago Bears’ game against the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday, Mitchell Trubisky left the game with an injury to his left shoulder. Trubisky had completed two of his first three passes for nine yards before being injured as he fell awkwardly on his outstretched left arm while being sacked.
Backup Chase Daniel entered the game and led the Bears down the field on a touchdown drive, completing four of his five passes for 52 yards and a touchdown. The injury looks like it could be a dislocated shoulder; the only good news for Trubisky is that the injury was suffered on his non-throwing arm.
Mitchell Trubisky has been ruled out for the rest of the day. Coming into the game, Trubisky had only 579 passing yards, three touchdown passes, and two interceptions. All three of those touchdown passes came in last Monday night’s 31-15 win over the Washington Redskins.
