Mitch Trubisky is a quick healer. After being unable to sit down toward the end of the Rams game with what the team later called a right hip pointer, the Bears quarterback practiced in full all week. He will start Sunday after not receiving an injury designation for the Giants game.

Coach Matt Nagy said Friday his quick recovery was “maybe a little” surprising.

“Just because I know when he’s in that much pain at the end of the game there last week, you neverreally know exactly what’s going to happen in the next couple days,” he said. “But it doesn’t surprise me that he’s going to rehab and work hard and do everything he can to try and get that pain level down so that he can play.”

Some were dubious of Trubisky’s injury when the Bears benched him after four ineffective drives. But the quarterback said he hurt his hip on a second-quarter sack and then it tightened up.

Nagy said he “threw the ball well” during practice this week. Nagy has praised Trubisky’s practice performance all year, though.

“With (Mitch) we just look for, it’s more so, during the week it’s more so decision-making,” he said. “Is he making the right decisions throughout the week? And then is he taking that to the field on Sunday?”

Right tackle Bobby Massie, who hurt his back in the Rams game and practiced all week, will start Sunday. The Bears ruled out tight end Adam Shaheen (foot) and inside Danny Trevathan (elbow) after neither practiced all week. Backup outside linebacker Isaiah Irving (quad) practiced in full and is questionable.

The Giants ruled out Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion), their top two tight ends.
