Quarterback Nick Foles practiced in full Thursday at Halas Hall, one day after returning on a limited basis. He has recovered after hurting his right hip during the loss to the Vikings, an injury the Bears at first feared would be season-ending.

Foles will serve as the Bears’ backup Sunday, though, after Nagy declared Mitch Trubisky the starter earlier this week. His presence as a healthy backup quietly confirms something Nagy has refused to acknowledge since the team returned from the bye: that Trubisky is the starter on merit, not necessarily because of injury.

“[Foles] is doing pretty good running around in practice right now,” Nagy said. “So I would suggest and think that it would be [the backup Sunday]. It would take something, you know, for him to say to me that he’s not.”

Tyler Bray served as Trubisky’s backup Sunday night against the Packers, while Foles sat out.
