The Bears are banking on Daniel in a game they can ill afford to lose.

The Bears will start backup quarterback Chase Daniel against the Raiders after ruling out Mitch Trubisky on Wednesday.

Trubisky fell on his left, non-throwing shoulder six plays into the game against the Vikings on Sunday, and Daniel came in to help the Bears win 16-6. Trubisky is believed to have suffers a dislocated shoulder and slight labrum tear, making him unable to practice.

Bears coach Matt Nagy said Trubisky will “most likely” miss the Raiders game, which is his way of saying he’s out.

The Bears are expected to sign Tyler Bray off their practice squad to be Daniel’s backup Sunday in London. The team is off the following week and resumes Oct. 20 against the Saints, giving Trubisky additional time to recover.

It will be Daniel’s fifth start in 10 NFL seasons. The Bears went 1-1 with him starting last year.

He completed 22 of 30 passes for 195 yards with a touchdown and no turnovers for a 101.4 passer rating against the Vikings. Trubisky’s rating is 81.0.
