Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky’s right shoulder injury progressed to the point where he attended practice Monday. He stretched and wore a helmet for the first time since hurting his shoulder Nov. 1 against the Saints.
That could portend Trubisky starting Sunday night against the Packers. Quarterback Nick Foles, who hurt his right hip seven days ago against the Vikings, was not spotted during the portion of Bears practice open to the media on Monday.
Bears coach Matt Nagy said the Bears “will get to Wednesday and see exactly where both these guys are at.”
He refused to give medical updates, and won’t have to until the injury report is due Wednesday.
The Bears held a light, 90-minute practice Monday — but Trubisky’s presence was notable nonetheless. After hurting his shoulder on his first — and only — snap since Week 3, Trubisky saw a specialist in Los Angeles who determined earlier this month he could return without surgery. The Bears didn’t feel the need to put him on injured reserve. He had not practiced until Monday.
The Bears’ two other healthy quarterbacks are Tyler Bray — who replaced Foles for the unsuccessful final drive against the Vikings — and Kyle Sloter, whom the Bears signed Nov. 10.
